GAME RECAP

Shawn Kemp's first game against his former team was a disaster as the Seattle SuperSonics received 25 points from Vin Baker and Gary Payton in their seventh straight victory, 109-84 over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Kemp played his first eight seasons with the SuperSonics but the All-Star power forward grumbled about his contract through most of last season. He was traded to the Cavaliers as part of a three-way deal that sent Baker to Seattle and received a $100 million extension over seven years.

"We have a lot of respect for Kemp, but we are happy without him," Seattle coach George Karl said. "I've had many more positive moments with him than negative ones in our six years together."

Before the game, Kemp was hugged by several former teammates. After the tip-off, he was mugged. The Sonics double-teamed him throughout and limited him to nine points on 2-of-11 shooting in their biggest road win of the season.

"This is probably the worst game of my nine years," Kemp said. "They were pretty much determined to shut me down. They caught us by surprise with the type of defense they had. It wasn't pretty. It was a hard night because I've played that defense for years. They were double- and triple-teaming me."

Kemp struggled on both offense and defense. He was matched up with Baker, another All-Star who scored 15 points in the first quarter as Seattle raced to a 35-18 lead. Cleveland committed four fouls in the first 2:16 and eight turnovers in the period.

"We had some great double-teams and we were aggressive in getting out on the break," Baker said. We played solid defense on Kemp. We knew the Cavs were an aggressive team."

"We know what frustrates Kemp and his jump shots weren't going in," Karl added.

The Sonics never trailed and led by as many as 36 points as they matched their best winning streak of the season, established from November 16th-30th. The NBA's best team also won for the seventh straight time on the road as it began a four-game trip.

Cleveland, which was coming off one of its best games of the season -- a 100-70 rout of the Houston Rockets -- was beaten by Seattle for the seventh straight time.

"It was a great basketball team we played tonight," Cavaliers coach Mike Fratello said. "I think they were trying to step on our team and drive them as far into the ground as they could. This wasn't just a case of Shawn not having a good night. His surrounding cast of characters didn't help either."

During pre-game warmups, Kemp appeared to ignore the Sonics, not even looking their way. But he made his way to midcourt and was greeted by several Sonics, exchanging handshakes and hugs.

A layup by rookie Zydrunas Ilgauskas made it 13-10 with 6:52 remaining in the first quarter before Payton scored five points and Baker four in a 14-1 spurt that built the lead to 27-11 with 3:17 left in the period.

A drive by rookie Cedric Henderson cut the deficit to 37-22 with 9:14 to go in the second quarter before Baker scored six points and Greg Anthony added five in a 19-6 burst, extending the lead to 56-28 on a pair of free throws by Detlef Schrempf with 1:24 remaining in the first half.

Seattle led 58-32 at halftime, shooting 50 percent (22-of-44) from the field and holding Cleveland to 41 percent (13-of-32). Baker outscored Kemp, 21-4, in the first half.

Payton scored 14 points in the third quarter as the Sonics built the lead to 90-56 entering the final period. They took their largest lead at 95-59 on a free throw by Dale Ellis with 9:56 to play.

Schrempf scored 14 points and Ellis added 12 for the Sonics, who shot 48 percent (38-of-79) overall and held a 42-38 rtebounding edge. Seattle played the end of its bench for the final nine minutes.

Wesley Person scored 15 points and Henderson and Henry James added 11 apiece for the Cavs, who shot less than 40 percent (30-of-76) and committed 21 turnovers, including three by Kemp.

"They took us out of our offense," Kemp said. "It was just one of those ugly games and they probably put out a little extra effort tonight. To me they are the best team in the NBA right now."
