GAME RECAP

Gary Payton recorded 21 points and 11 assists as the Seattle SuperSonics set an NBA record by beating the Minnesota Timberwolves for the 26th straight time, 108-99.

Seattle, whose last loss to Minnesota was on March 15th, 1991, took sole possession of the NBA record for consecutive victories against one opponent from the Phoenix Suns, who also defeated Minnesota 25 straight times between December 29th, 1989 and December 1st, 1995.

"We play them no different than we play anyone else," said Payton about the record. "We try to win every game. We feel great. I like our team. We are playing really well right now. The first month is always good for us. Nobody knows quite how to play us."

Detlef Schrempf chipped in 19 points and Hersey Hawkins had 18 as Seattle concluded a 3-2 road trip and has won 10 of its last 12 games. The Sonics drew even with the idle Los Angeles Lakers for first place in the Pacific Division.

Chris Carr netted 18 points and Kevin Garnett had 16 and 15 rebounds for Minnesota, which has dropped eight of its last 10.

"The big thing when you play a team like Seattle is they try to get you to play their style," said Minnesota coach Flip Saunders. "There are certain things that they want to do and certain things that they do not want you to do. Our situation tonight was that we played how they wanted us to play."

Schrempf and Vin Baker combined for 10 points in a 19-8 run that gave the Sonics the lead for good at 26-21 with 39 seconds left in the first quarter.

The margin was 28-23 after 12 minutes and Seattle assumed an eight-point lead several times in the second period before a dunk by Garnett capped a 7-0 spurt that narrowed the deficit to 44-43 with 2:13 left in the half.

The Timberwolves trailed 50-47 at the break and cut it to 55-53 on Carr's dunk with 8:46 to play in the third quarter. But Payton and Schrempf scored five points apiece in a 16-4 burst that extended the gap to 71-57 with 4:04 left.

Payton had all his 21 points through three quarters as Seattle led 87-72 heading into the fourth period. Sam Perkins' basket gave the Sonics their first 20-point advantage at 98-78 with 7:49 remaining. The Wolves got no closer than the final margin.

Baker and Dale Ellis each contributed 14 points for Seattle, which made 9-of-23 three-point attempts. Jim McIlvaine grabbed 10 rebounds.

"We hit some big three tonight," said Seattle coach George Karl. "The third quarter we came out aggressive, the key to getting the lead was our aggressive defense. McIlvaine controlled the middle. Hawkins and Schrempf hit some big shots. Gary (Payton) was in control of the game all night."

Stephon Marbury tallied 15 points, Sam Mitchell scored 13 and Tom Gugliotta had 11 and nine boards for Minnesota, which was 19-for-21 from the foul line and won the rebounding battle, 48-42.

"We came out flat in the second half and that was the difference in the game," said Marbury. "The third quarter seems to be our worst quarter. We need to change that, especially at home. We need to get focused and have a great practice tomorrow. We are a little frustrated right now."
