GAME RECAP

Hersey Hawkins fueled a decisive third-quarter burst and scored eight of his 18 points in the final 1:40, leading the Seattle SuperSonics to their fourth straight win, a 112-105 victory over the winless Philadelphia 76ers, who are off to their worst start in 25 years.

A former 76er, Hawkins had a jumper and three-pointer in a 16-5 run that broke open a tie game midway through the third period. After the 76ers closed to 101-96 with two minutes remaining, Hawkins drilled consecutive three-pointers and added two free throws down the stretch.

"It's good being able to get a shot when it counted," said Hawkins, who came in shooting 35 percent from the field. "I was having trouble finding my range all night so it was good to find my shot when I did. Our defense really turned it around for us in the third quarter. Once we got that going we were able to win the game."

Vin Baker had 25 points and 12 rebounds and Gary Payton added 16 points and 14 assists for the SuperSonics, who improved to a league-best 4-0 on the road. Seattle has beaten Philadelphia 10 straight times since January 4th, 1992.

"My teammates make it easy for me," Baker said. "They were able to get me the ball inside. ... We're getting out of the gates quickly but we still haven't played up to our potential. We have a lot of stuff to clean up but we're doing enough things to win and that's how we stay positive."

"We're a good basketball team that is learning a lot about itself and the place to do that is on the road," Sonics coach George Karl said. "We've had a lot of close games so far, but the guys are able to play hard and have early success."

Allen Iverson collected 23 points and 10 assists for the Sixers, who broke 100 points for the first time this season but tumbled to 0-5 under new coach Larry Brown. Jerry Stackhouse and Derrick Coleman scored 17 points apiece.

Philadelphia has lost its first five games for the first time since the 1972-73 season, when it went 9-73, the worst record in league history.

"How could you call this a team? These guys won 18 and 22 games (the last two years). That's not a team," Brown said. "How could you call us a team? We don't play like a team. We don't do the little things that teams do. We don't go after loose balls, we don't screen out, we don't make the extra pass to score -- things that teams do to win. It was like watching one of those summer All-Star games on MTV."

The game was tied 66-66 when Hawkins made a jumper to trigger a 16-5 burst by Seattle. Payton hit a jumper and Iverson scored before Aaron Williams had a tip-in and Baker made a short jumper to build the lead to 74-68 with 6:28 left in the period.

Hawkins hit a three-pointer between a free throw and jumper by Coleman. Payton drove for a hoop and Detlef Schrempf sank two free throws before another foul shot by Payton made it 82-71 with 3:30 remaining.

Consecutive technical fouls against the Sixers for an illegal defense and Brown arguing with officials resulted in two free throws by Dale Ellis that gave the Sonics their largest lead at 92-79 with 9:48 to play.

But a three-pointer by Iverson and a slam by Stackhouse off a steal capped a 9-2 spurt that pulled Philadelphia within 97-92 with 5:07 remaining. Payton and Stackhouse traded layups and Baker and former Sonic Terry Cummings swapped short shots before Hawkins took over. He made a pair of three-pointers around a free throw by Clarence Weatherspoon to give Seattle a 107-97 lead with 1:15 to play.

"The difference in the second half was our disposition defensively," Sonics coach George Karl said. "We played better. We played smarter. We got the steals that allowed us to run up and down the court."

Schrempf scored 17 points for the Sonics, who shot 43 percent (38-of-88) from the field and forced 27 turnovers while shooting 18 more free throws. Ellis and Jerome Kersey scored 11 points apiece and Sam Perkins added 10 as Seattle had seven players in double figures.

Weatherspoon collected 11 points and 13 rebounds for the Sixers, who shot 59 percent (43-of-73) and held a 42-37 rebounding advantage. Rookie Tim Thomas scored 12 points.

"It's almost like there's a mental block," Stackhouse said. "Some of the time we're looking around waiting for bad things to happen to us. We have to fight through that by knowing that we have some talent on this team. We can go from how it's been here the last five years, from being one of the NBA's worst teams to being one of the best. The way to do that is to execute on the offensive end."

Coleman scored 10 points and Iverson eight as Philadelphia took a 26-24 lead after one quarter. Baker had 14 points in the second period as Seattle grabbed a 58-57 halftime lead.

"We had some breakdowns in the second half, things that should not have happened," Iverson said. "We were getting easy baskets in the first half. We weren't getting those baskets in the second half and we didn't run as much in the second half."
