GAME RECAP

Nate McMillan, playing in his first game of the season after returning from knee surgery, hit three three-pointers in the fourth quarter, helping the Seattle SuperSonics to a 101-95 comeback win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

McMillan, who finished with nine points and seven assists in 23 minutes, hit his first three-pointer to tie the score at 78-78 with 9:51 left. Just 53 seconds later, he capped an 9-3 spurt with a three-pointer to give Seattle the lead for good. His last three-pointer made it 92-85 with 3:55 remaining.

McMillan missed the bulk of last season with back and hamstring ailments and all of this season with a knee injury. He has the longest continuous term of service of any current Sonic and is an outstanding defender.

"I was surprised I had enough in my legs in the fourth quarter to shoot the deep threes," McMillan said. "Once I hit one the others came in rhythm. I saw guys backing off of me and I understood why, with this being my first game back. My thing was to punish them for leaving me open. And I was able to knock the shots down."

Dale Ellis scored 19 points, Vin Baker 17 and Gary Payton 16 and 12 assists for Seattle, which won its sixth straight home game against Portland and 16th of 20 overall in the series.

Aaron Williams started at forward in place of Detlef Schrempf, who was elbowed in the throat in practice earlier this week. Williams had 12 points and eight boards in 31 minutes.

"It was the worst passing game that I can remember for a long time," Seattle coach George Karl said, referring to the Sonics' 22 turnovers that led to 25 points. "We didn't take the extra pass and made some bad decisions trying to make some great plays.

"Nate came in and settled us down and got Dale involved in the game. Plus, he made big defensive plays."

Isaiah Rider scored 26 points and Jermaine O'Neal added 14 and 13 boards for the Trail Blazers, who had their five-game winning streak snapped. Rasheed Wallace, who had 12 points, left the game with a hip-pointer with 6:20 left in the third quarter. He did not return and is day-to-day.

"They got a big lift from McMillan coming off the bench, making those threes," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "They were big shots. Overall I still found enough good things in this game to be positive.

"Damon can't have a bad game because he plays with such effort. He plays with his head. If he doesn't shoot the ball well he still has a good game defensively."

Stoudamire, playing in his second game for the Blazers after arriving in a trade from Toronto, shot just 4-for-14 from the field but did have 11 assists and six rebounds.

"It was game we could've won but we had too many mental breakdowns in the key areas of the game," Stoudamire said. "Seattle capitalized on everything we did wrong.

"I'm still getting used to everybody. Things are flowing and I'm trying to get everybody involved. Now I've got to try and work on my shot. This is a team that with a few more practices, and a couple of more games, we're going to be dangerous."

After McMillan's back-to-back three-pointers, Williams finished off a fast break with a dunk at 8:05 to move Seattle ahead 83-78.

Portland cut the lead to 87-85 after Stoudamire hit one free throw with 4:55 left, but a tip-in by Baker and McMillan's last three-pointer at 3:55 pushed the Sonics' lead back to seven points.

A jumper by Payton with 1:35 remaining made it 99-89, but a free throw by Rider and a three-pointer and two free throws by Walt Williams made it 99-95 with 19.9 seconds left. Hersey Hawkins closed the scoring with two free throws four seconds later.

A 10-5 spurt by Portland, capped off by a coast-to-coast drive by Stoudamire, gave the Blazers a 71-63 advantage with 1:41 remaining in the third quarter.

Sam Perkins followed with a three-pointer and a 15-footer to cut Portland's lead to three points. Over the last 37 seconds of the quarter a Brian Grant jumper and a Stoudamire layup sandwiched around a layup by Ellis to give Portland a 75-70 lead after three quarters.
