GAME RECAP

Sam Perkins and Dale Ellis both came off the bench to fuel decisive bursts as the Seattle SuperSonics remained unbeaten against the Pacific Division with their 10th road win, a 111-95 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

Vin Baker had 25 points and 16 rebounds and Gary Payton added 22 points and 12 assists for the SuperSonics, who have won seven of their last eight games overall. Seattle is 7-0 against division foes and a league-best 10-4 on the road.

Perkins scored eight of his 10 points in a third-quarter spurt that gave the Sonics control for good. Ellis scored 19 points, including eight in the last 4:19 that sealed Seattle's 19th win in its last 23 meetings with Sacramento.

The duo combined to shoot 8-of-9 from three-point range. Ellis, the all-time leader in three-pointers, was 5-of-5, while Perkins was 3-of-4.

"I didn't like how we played defense tonight, but offensively we played pretty good," Seattle coach George Karl said. "We still had a little Christmas spirit in us. The Kings played good basketball and kept coming back. We kept our composure and Dale Ellis made some big shots down the stretch."

Mitch Richmond collected 25 points and nine assists and Corliss Williamson added 23 points for the Kings, who had won four of their last five at home.

"We played hard but it just seemed like we were playing with BB guns and they were playing with cannons," Kings coach Eddie Jordan said. "They made some big-time threes. They got out and ran on us. ... Dale Ellis always comes in and gives us big-time problems. That's the best team in the league and we fought real hard against them."

Richmond scored five points in a 10-0 spurt and the Kings took their last lead at 65-64 on a basket by Williamson with 5:40 to go in the third quarter. But Perkins had two three-pointers and scored eight points in a 14-4 burst as the Sonics reclaimed the lead at 78-69 with 2:37 left in the period.

"All we said was that we needed to bang them the way they were banging us," Baker said. "We knew what we had to do. We are a veteran team, we knew what needed to be done and we won the game. We got a lot of breaks and we started to hit our shots."

Seattle led 86-78 entering the fourth quarter and Sacramento cut the deficit to seven points on four occasions, the last time at 97-90 on two free throws by Richmond with 4:38 left.

However, the Kings managed just five points thereafter as Ellis took over. His three-pointer and layup quickly rebuilt the lead to 12 points with 3:54 to play and he added a three-pointer with about a minute to go as Seattle closed the game by scoring 14 of the last 19 points.

Detlef Schrempf scored 17 points for the Sonics, who shot 50 percent (43-of-86) from the field and held a 46-41 rebounding advantage. Seattle made 10-of-18 three-pointers.

"I thought we played well under the circumstances, holidays and all those things," Baker said. "We came out and played a good game. After losing a game and going on the road, we responded well. This is what I've wanted my whole career, to have an opportunity to win."

Rookie Anthony Johnson and Olden Polynice scored 11 points each for the Kings, who shot 44 percent (37-of-84), including 7-of-17 from behind the arc. Rookie center Michael Stewart grabbed 11 rebounds and blocked five shots.

"They started trapping and making some big threes and that was really it," Stewart said. "It shows where you're at when you play against the best. It's a good measuring stick for how good your team is and what you need to do to be the best, and right now we're not good enough."

A layup by Polynice gave the Kings their largest lead at 43-34 with 5:50 left in the second quarter, but Sacramento went cold, managing just four points in the rest of the first half. Baker scored six points and Payton five in a 19-4 run as Seattle took a 53-47 halftime lead.

"With Seattle, you can be down only two points, look up and be down 10. That's just how good they are," Polynice said. "That's why they have the best record in the league."

A three-pointer by Hawkins opened the margin to 58-47 just 61 seconds into the second half before Williamson's layup with 10:02 left in the third quarter ended a stretch that saw the Kings manage just one field goal for 7:48.

"In the first half we weren't doing nothing," Payton said. "We let them run their offense and we came out and got physical and ran our defense like we were supposed to in the third quarter."
