Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- The Los Angeles Lakers are the three-time defending NBA champions and headed to the playoffs. But you couldn't tell by the way they played against the Seattle SuperSonics. The Lakers were outscored by 20 points in the second quarter and surrendered their highest total of the season in a 119-98 loss to the SuperSonics, who got 32 points from Ray Allen. The Lakers (42-31) have turned things around after an awful start that saw them lose nine of their first 12 games and fall to 11-19 on Christmas. But the brilliance of Kobe Bryant - who scored a league season-high 55 points Friday against Washington - sometimes obscures the fact that the Lakers still struggle from time to time. Sunday was one of those times. "I am concerned," Bryant said. "It's one game, (but) we obviously have weaknesses. We're not unbeatable as we were in the past." Los Angeles allowed Seattle to shoot a blistering 57 percent (43-of-76) from the field. An awful second quarter put the Lakers in a 57-36 halftime hole and they got no closer than 20 points thereafter. "Last year we didn;t lock anybody up, either," Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. "Two years ago we could play a little defense. But we had guys who could play defense." Shaquille O'Neal scored 34 points but did not get much help. Bryant, who notched two of his 17 40-point games this season against Seattle, managed just 14 points on 5-of-13 shooting. The Lakers had a three-game winning streak snapped and fell one game behind sixth-place Utah in the Western Conference. If the Lakers finish seventh or lower, they must face a division winner in the first round. "It's a missed opportunity," Jackson said. "Utah lost (Saturday), Minnesota lost today, we just didn't take advantage of it." "It was a tough game for us but we've got nine games left," Bryant said. "We'll get back on track. Tonight was a setback, obviously. There's always a lot of work to do, especially when you're talking about winning a championship." Since acquiring Allen at the trading deadline, the Sonics have won two of three meetings with the Lakers. Allen had a triple-double in the first win and averaged 29 points in the three games. "They are the world champions and they have a target on their backs," he said. "The teams that are the better teams in the NBA beat the teams that don't have the best records. That's the type of focus that we have to have." Rashard Lewis returned from a one-game injury absence to score 24 points for Seattle, which is 2 1/2 games behind Phoenix and Houston for the final playoff berth in the Western Conference. Predrag Drobnjak scored 20 points and Brent Barry added 15, 13 assists and nine rebounds for the Sonics, who posted a season high in points and made 10-of-23 3-pointers. "These guys did a great job of executing our game plan," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "Defensively we were solid and controlled the boards and we were able to get out and get some transition tonight." O'Neal scored 13 points in the first quarter, which ended with Seattle holding a 23-22 lead. Barry scored five points in an 11-2 spurt that opened the second period and widened the advantage to 34-24. Allen scored 10 points in a 20-8 run that closed the first half. In the second quarter, Seattle shot 52 percent (12-of-23), making five 3-pointers. LA shot just 21 percent (3-of-14). A three-point play by Drobnjak gave the Sonics their largest lead at 112-84 with 4:03 to play. Rookie Jannero Pargo scored 11 points for the Lakers, who shot 49 percent (39-of-79).
