GAME RECAP

Shawn Kemp fizzled early amidst loud boos before recovering for 17 points in his return to Seattle, but Gary Payton hit a key bucket down the stretch and finished with 28 points to lead the SuperSonics past the Cleveland Cavaliers, 99-91.

"I was pretty much waiting for this," Kemp admitted. "It was one of the things on the schedule I waited for."

Kemp collected three fouls in nine minutes in the first half, hitting one free throw and missing all three of his shots from the field. But he came alive over the final 24 minutes, completing the Cavs' comeback with a jumper that forced an 83-83 deadlock with 4:30 to go.

"Shawn seems happy and I think we're happy that we've moved on," said Seattle coach George Karl. "I think it's time for everybody to put it behind us."

But Payton, who hit 10-of-18 from the field, followed with a lay-in that ignited a 9-2 run to put it out of reach. Payton had eight rebounds and six assists and Vin Baker totaled 21 points for the Sonics, who posted their fourth straight home victory.

Kemp, who played in Seattle for eight seasons before coming over to the Cavaliers in a blockbuster three-way trade that involved Baker, hit 5-of-11 from the field, 7-of-10 from the line and added seven rebounds in 30 minutes.

A five-time All-Star, Kemp faced his old club for the second time since coming over in a three-way, blockbuster trade. In the Cavs' 109-84 home loss to the Sonics on January 8th, Kemp was held to just nine points on 2-of-11 shooting and six rebounds.

"We've come out of a trade, a difficult trade situation with a very good player, some people might say a better player," Karl said. "All I know is, we haven't missed a beat and we have a chance to contend for a championship. That usually doesn't happen very often when you have a very unhappy player."

Rookie Cedric Henderson had a season-high 23 points and Wesley Person added 16 for Cleveland, which lost its eighth in a row to the Sonics and its seventh straight in Seattle.

"We just decided we were going to go out and give them a fight," said Henderson, who was 10-of-15 from the floor. "I don't get that much attention, so I took advantage of what was open. I just took points where I could take them."

Trailing 24-22, the Sonics scored the first 12 points of the second quarter and assumed a 34-24 advantage on a three-point play by Hersey Hawkins, who finished with just six points. Seattle built its lead as big as 16 points on two free throws by Schrempf before Person hit a jumper to cut it to 57-43 at the break.

Schrempf finished with 16 points and 11 rebounds and Dale Ellis added 17 points off the bench for the Sonics, who hit 44 percent (36-of-81) from the field.

The Cavaliers fought back in the second half. Down 65-52 midway through the third quarter, Kemp hit a pair of free throws to ignite an 8-0 spurt. Person dunked, Brevin Knight hit 1-of-2 from the line and Vitaly Potapenko dropped in a short hook before Kemp's free throw capped the burst with three minutes left.

Cleveland pulled even for the first time in the second half at 74-74 on Kemp's 18-footer with 8:18 to play. The Sonics crept ahead but the Cavs caught them again at 83 on Kemp's follow-jumper with 4:13 left. Payton and Ellis made layups before Henderson's dunk sliced the deficit to 87-85, but Schrempf hit a lay-in and Payton converted on a three-point play as Seattle iced it with a 9-2 burst.

"He (Kemp) seemed much more aggressive than the game in Cleveland and we expected that," said Baker. "He was making some tough shots, I was playing pretty-good defense, but he was making tough shots."

Rookie Derek Anderson netted 14 points and Potapenko contributed 10 for the Cavs, who hit 51 percent (35-of-69) of their shots but committed 21 turnovers.
