Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Without Ray Allen and two of their big men, the Seattle SuperSonics still had enough to add to the Los Angeles Lakers' misery. Rashard Lewis scored 27 points and Flip Murray added a season-high 25 as the shorthanded SuperSonics survived a late rally to post a 102-100 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers, who have lost a season-high five straight. Allen, who leads Seattle in scoring with a 23.9 average, left late in the first quarter with a sprained right ankle. His loss added to the injury woes for the Sonics, who already were without centers Jerome James and Danny Fortson. "We're hoping (Allen) won't be out long," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "We had it X-rayed and the results were negative, but it was still too sore to come back in the second half. We'll see how he feels tomorrow." Lewis was hot enough early to offset the loss of Allen, scoring 16 points in the first half to enable Seattle to take a 46-41 lead into intermission. Murray made the most of his increased minutes, scoring 12 in the third quarter when the Sonics built their advantage to 71-63. He added seven more points in the final 8:03 of the game to help turn away the Lakers' late charge. "Flip (Murray) stepped in and played well," McMillan said. "We're hurting right now, but we just continue to find ways to win basketball games. Guys are stepping up and playing solid basketball." "It definitely felt good to have a chance to play," Murray said. "I'm quite sure people know what I can do. The team was going good without me, I just had to stay patient and wait my turn." Kobe Bryant did all he could to bring the Lakers back in the fourth, scoring 16 points with four 3-pointers. His reverse layup and Brian Cook's free throw capped an 8-1 run and whittled Los Angeles' deficit to 94-91 with just under a minute to play. Lakers guard Chucky Atkins cut it to 95-93 with 43 seconds left but Nick Collison converted a three-point play on the other end for a five-point lead. "We made a good run at them, but it came down to a couple of situations where we didn't get that big stop," Bryant said. Caron Butler was then unable to finish a three-point play for Los Angeles, but the club had one last chance to tie when Bryant grabbed the offensive rebound. He missed a 3-pointer, however, and in the scramble for the rebound the ball was ruled to go off a Laker with 14.6 seconds left. Replays showed Seattle guard Antonio Daniels swatting the ball out. Two free throws by Luke Ridnour and a pair by Lewis sealed the Sonics' fourth win in five games. Bryant finished with 30 points but missed his last four 3-point attempts in the closing minutes. Butler added 29 points for Los Angeles, which matched its worst losing streak since the 1993-94 season, the last in which the club missed the playoffs. Despite the loss, Bryant was able to reverse a troubling trend. He was 6-of-37 in the fourth quarter over his last four games but 6-of-11 in this one. Although their playoff hopes are in jeopardy, Lakers interim coach Frank Hamblen insists his team still can make it. "I still feel like we're in it," Hamblen said. "I hope those guys feel the same way. You lose five in a row this late in the season and sooner or later you have to stand and be counted. You'll have to ask those guys if they still feel like they're in it." The Lakers' slide has them 3 1/2 games behind the Denver Nuggets for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. "Sure, as long as there's a mathematical chance, we can still do it," Bryant said. "But we're going to have to start playing better defense. You never know, we can get hot, but it all starts with locking people down and we didn't do that tonight." The Sonics, meanwhile, are closing in on the Northwest Division title, holding a 10-game lead with 17 to play. "Right now every win is big," said Lewis, who had 10 rebounds. "The most important thing right now is to clinch the division so we can position ourselves getting ready for the playoffs."
