GAME RECAP

Gary Payton's steal and layup with 19.7 seconds left put Seattle ahead and Hersey Hawkins preserved the lead with another steal to give the SuperSonics their first win at Market Square Arena in nearly six years, 99-93 over the Indiana Pacers.

The Sonics snapped a five-game losing streak in Indianapolis, winning there for the first time since November 15th, 1991. Their last two losses at Indiana each had been by 14 points.

"We kept fighting. We had a lot of frustration, especially in the third quarter," said Seattle coach George Karl. "In the fourth quarter, we just let the refs go. We changed our post coverage on (Rik) Smits and that helped. We lucked into a win."

Dale Ellis, who scored 11 points off the bench for Seattle, hit a three-pointer with 1:22 left to forge a 93-93 tie. After several empty possessions for both teams, the Pacers called timeout and got set to inbound the ball in the frontcourt with just over 23 seconds left.

But Chris Mullin's inbounds pass went through the hands of point guard Mark Jackson. Payton pounced on the loose ball and raced in for the uncontested layup and a 95-93 lead. Payton scored 17 of his 24 points in the first half.

"It's just something that happened," explained Payton. "He dropped the ball and I picked it up and raced down the court and scored. We got lucky and got the steal. We kept at it, got a lot of key steals and came back and won the game."

Indiana, which committed nine of its 16 turnovers in the final quarter, gave the ball away again. Reggie Miller tried to feed Smits on a pick and roll play to the left of the basket, but Hawkins read the pass and picked it off. Hawkins and Detlef Schrempf each hit a pair of free throws to ice it.

"It was a big win for us," said Schrempf. "We looked like we were down in the third quarter, but hung in there. We made some big plays in the end and won the game."

"We let this one get away from us and we shouldn't have," Smits said. "We gave great team effort early and up to the end. The play we ran at the end is one we execute all the time."

Miller had 22 points and Smits added 20 and 11 rebounds for the Pacers, who took an 80-73 lead into the final quarter.

The Sonics began the fourth quarter with a 12-4 run and took an 85-84 lead on Schrempf's follow dunk with 6:07 left. Indiana regained the lead on Mullin's jumper before Ellis hit a free throw for an 86-86 tie with 5:22 remaining. Travis Best's three-pointer put the Pacers ahead and they remained in front until Ellis' three-pointer.

Vin Baker, coming off a 35-point game against Toronto on Thursday, had 17 points and 11 rebounds. Schrempf added 16 points and Hawkins and Aaron Williams had 12 and 10, respectively, as all five starters scored in double figures for Seattle. The Sonics committed just six turnovers.

Williams was 4-of-6 from the field in 22 minutes while filling in at center for Sam Perkins, who sat out with a bruised right knee.

Seattle improved to 3-0 on the road this season and has won six of its last seven road games, dating back to April 10th.

Mullin had 18 points and Dale Davis pulled down 17 rebounds for Indiana, which commanding the glass, 51-34.

The Pacers' biggest lead came with just over 1 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter, when Miller's jumper made it 78-67. They matched that advantage once more before the Sonics began to whittle away. Miller contributed to Indiana's demise with four turnovers in the fourth quarter.
