GAME RECAP

Vin Baker scored 24 points, including a fallaway jumper over David Robinson with 1.9 seconds left, as the Seattle SuperSonics rallied late and defeated the San Antonio Spurs for the sixth straight time, 106-105.

A three-pointer by Chuck Person stopped a 17-4 run by Seattle and gave the Spurs a 105-104 lead with 1:15 to go. The teams traded empty possessions and the SuperSonics took over with 17 seconds left.

Starting from the left wing, the 6-11 Baker dribbled behind his back toward the basket, then back into the lane as he lofted a shot from the foul line over a lunging Robinson. On San Antonio's final possession, Gary Payton broke up a lob pass intended for Robinson to give Seattle its third straight win at the AlamoDome.

"I tried to make a move on David," Baker said. "I tried every possible move and he stuck with me. So I just came back into the middle and got far enough into the paint to take a shot that I felt comfortable with. That fact that it went in was just a blessing."

"We played good defense on that play," Robinson said. "He took a very tough shot while falling away from 14 feet and made it. To be honest, I pretty much had him where I wanted him."

Detlef Schrempf scored 21 points and Payton added 20 and eight assists for the Sonics, who held the Spurs to seven points in the final 8:46 as they erased an 11-point deficit. Baker, who played the final seven minutes with five fouls, grabbed 10 rebounds.

"We expect that out of him," Payton said. "That's why we went out and got him. Vin has to hit that shot."

"It was a hell of a basketball game," Sonics coach George Karl said. "Things were very different in the fourth quarter. No one played defense until the fourth, it seemed like. Then we made some good adjustments."

Tim Duncan scored 26 points and Robinson added 20 and 10 boards for the Spurs. But the Twin Towers combined for just two points in the final period. San Antonio, which has not beaten Seattle since April 13th, 1996, had an overall five-game winning streak snapped.

"We played a heck of a game, but couldn't get it in the hole," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "Seattle is a heck of a team. They're the best team in the league. They are poised and they've been together a long time."

Avery Johnson scored 10 of his 17 points in the third quarter, including a runner at the buzzer that gave San Antonio a 94-85 lead. A jumper by Robinson extended the advantage to 98-87 with 8:46 remaining before Seattle made its move.

Greg Anthony made a three-pointer, Dale Ellis hit a jumper and Baker scored to cut the deficit to 98-94 with 6:23 to go. Schrempf made two free throws between a pair of jumpers by San Antonio's Vinny Del Negro before Sam Perkins got hot. Perkins made consecutive three-pointers to tie the game with three minutes left and added a runner with 1:56 to go, giving Seattle a 104-102 lead.

"We didn't deserve it," Schrempf said. "We played awful for three quarters. We didn't deserve any calls from the refs but in the fourth we picked it up."

"They outplayed us for three quarters but we responded well," Payton said. "Coach Karl yelled at us at halftime and got us motivated. It just shows how if we play good defense the whole game, then we're very tough to beat."

Ellis scored 17 points and Perkins and Anthony added nine each for the Sonics, who shot 52.5 percent (42-of-80) from the field, including 10-of-26 from three-point range. Seattle attempted just 14 free throws, making 12.

Jaren Jackson scored 14 points and Person added 13 for the Spurs, who shot 52 percent (38-of-73) and held a 41-31 edge in rebounds. San Antonio made 6-of-12 three-pointers and 23-of-33 free throws.

"They're a great defensive team and have a bunch of great players," Duncan said. "You have to give credit to Vin Baker down the stretch. The great players go out and make great plays."

Duncan scored 13 points in the first quarter, which ended with the Spurs holding a 29-27 lead. Robinson scored 10 points in the second quarter, which Johnson capped with a stop-and-pop transition jumper at the buzzer that gave San Antonio a 63-59 edge.
