GAME RECAP

Dale Ellis and Greg Anthony led a big effort from Seattle's bench and combined for 24 of their 31 points in the pivotal second quarter as the SuperSonics earned their fourth straight home win, 111-93 over the road-weary Toronto Raptors.

Gary Payton scored 24 points to pace the Sonics, who improved their Western Conference-best home record to 25-4. Seattle (47-15), which clinched a playoff berth on Monday thanks to a loss by Sacramento, is clinging to a one-game edge over the Chicago Bulls for the league's best record.

Trailing 47-41 midway through the second period, Seattle used a 23-6 burst to take control. Ellis sparked it with a free throw and hit a layup to give the Sonics the lead for good, 53-51, 4:30 before halftime. Anthony drained three three-pointers during the run, which put Seattle in front, 64-53 with 1:17 remaining.

"Their bench did a really good job. The starters struggled trying to figure out what we were doing," Raptors coach Butch Carter said. "Their bench came in the second quarter and ran right through us. We got locked into thinking that guys were non-scorers coming off the bench, and Anthony got off to the good start making the threes."

Ellis scored 13 of his 18 points and Anthony had 11 of his 13 in the second quarter, leading the Sonics to a 66-55 halftime advantage. Seattle received 43 points from its bench.

"The bench stepped up big time," Payton said. "The starting five -- and I'm taking blame on myself and with everybody -- we are not doing the job right now. We're not coming out and being aggressive, we're just not doing the job right now."

John Wallace had 25 points and nine rebounds for Toronto, which fell to 0-4 on its current six-game road trip. The Raptors have lost five games in a row overall and 10 of 11 on the road, where they are 5-26 on the season.

Vin Baker had 15 points and 10 rebounds, helping the Sonics to a 48-40 edge on the glass. It was the first time in 14 games that Seattle outrebounded its opponent.

"We've been concentrating a lot on rebounding, but we've got to concentrate even more," Baker said. "The last couple of times we've been fortunate enough to concentrate on the boards a little more and get the ball to bounce our way."

Hersey Hawkins hit two layups and sank two free throws to cap the 23-6 burst, finishing with 14 points and tying a season high with 10 boards. He rebounded from an atrocious effort in Seattle's 99-98 overtime win over Minnesota on Sunday, when he was 0-for-7 from the field and was held scoreless in 39 minutes.

Sunday's victory capped a 2-2 road trip, during which its only two wins came by way of overtime. The SuperSonics scored over 100 points for the first time in seven games.

Toronto took control in the early going, opening the game with a 19-6 run. Doug Christie scored seven of his 21 points in that burst before a three-point play by Marcus Camby capped it with 6:24 remaining in the opening quarter.

Just over a minute later, Camby had to leave the game with a strained left groin. Camby, who has already missed 14 games this season due to injury, did not return and is uncertain if he will be able to play in Friday's road game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Once he left, the game seemed to take a turn for the worse for Toronto. Seattle steadily crept back in, pulling within 32-29 by the end of the period behind Payton's 11 points.

"We had to just keep playing. We made a lot of turnovers and then it finally all clicked," Payton said. "We needed to get rebounds and we needed to run and we were finally able to do that."

"I think the first six minutes it still felt like we were on the road," Hawkins said. "We came out making turnovers, they came out energetic. Gary (Payton) really picked up the tempo on the offensive end, he got us running and that's what got us back into the game."

A three-pointer by Christie increased the advantage to 47-41 with 7:51 left in the second period, but Seattle responded with the decisive burst.

Seattle built its biggest lead, 88-65, on a lay-in by Hawkins with 3:31 to go in the third quarter. The Sonics went on for an 89-69 lead heading into the fourth.

"They got some good looks," said Raptors guard Chauncey Billups. "They know what they need to do and when they need to do it."

The Raptors did not quit, using a 14-4 run to cut the deficit to 95-85 with 6:12 to play on a three-point play by Wallace. But Baker answered with a free throw and Detlef Schrempf hit a layup and two foul shots to increase the advantage to 100-85 with 4:19 to go.

Toronto got no closer than 12 points the rest of the way in losing to the Sonics for the fifth straight time.

Schrempf contributed 11 points and eight boards for Seattle, which hit 50 percent (39-of-78) from the field and made 9-of-18 three-pointers.

Reggie Slater scored 16 points off the bench for Toronto, which shot 43 percent (35-for-81) and made just 6-of-21 from behind the arc.
