GAME RECAP

Sam Perkins scored 18 points and Hersey Hawkins had 16 as the Seattle SuperSonics won their fifth straight home game and captured the season series with the Minnesota Timberwolves with a 114-80 victory.

Detlef Schrempf added 14 points and Gary Payton had 13 and 14 assists as Seattle won for the eighth time in its last 10 games overall. The Sonics avenged a 112-103 home loss to Minnesota on December 23rd and won the season series for the seventh straight year, 3-1.

The Sonics had previously posted a 114-80 win at Houston on January 19th for their biggest win of the year. This was not their largest triumph against the Timberwolves, however, as they previously had a pair of 37-point wins.

"It's a great win, we finally got into the flow of playing together again and running up and down," said Schrempf. "Hopefully this will carry over to Monday (against the Lakers)."

Terry Porter tallied 16 points and Kevin Garnett had 12 and 10 rebounds for Minnesota, which has dropped three of its last four games and eight of 11. It was the Wolves' largest margin of defeat this year, eclipsing a 110-84 setback at Miami on February 17th.

"You come in here hoping your guys are going to have a little bit more of an edge knowing that if you don't play you are going to get killed," said Minnesota coach Flip Saunders. "We had too many mental breakdowns and when you're playing good teams, you don't have a chance. If we play like we did today, we wouldn't be a tough matchup for anybody."

Hawkins and Vin Baker each scored six points in the opening 12 minutes to pace Seattle to a 28-25 lead. Porter and Sam Mitchell netted six points apiece for Minnesota.

Perkins opened the second quarter with a three-pointer to begin a 15-4 run. Dale Ellis added a three-pointer and Greg Anthony had five points, including a layup with 7:35 left that bumped the gap to 43-29.

Seattle led 54-42 at the break but had it trimmed to 62-52 on Stanley Roberts' dunk with 6:52 to go. But Hawkins nailed a jumper, Payton hit a three-pointer and Schrempf had a lay-in and free throw with 3:41 left to make it 70-52.

The margin was 81-60 after three quarters and the largest lead was the final score.

"Mentally we were in this game and didn't allow any letdowns today," said Perkins. "The game came to us and we all played well."

Ellis contributed 14 points, Anthony had 11 and six assists and Jerome Kersey grabbed 13 rebounds for Seattle, which shot 52 percent (43-of-83) from the field, including 12-of-21 (57 percent) from three-point range.

"I think Vin Baker's defense over the last six or seven games was the best I've ever seen him play," said Seattle coach George Karl. "If we can get him to defend guys at the four position, he can really help us. Today our hands were involved in the game and that hasn't been the case all season. Tonight we were all over the ball."

Mitchell scored 12 points and Stephon Marbury had 10 and five assists as Minnesota shot 42 percent (31-of-74) from the floor and just 4-of-16 from three-point territory.

"They were just getting a lot of deflections and we were putting up jump shots instead of taking it to the hole," said Minnesota's Anthony Peeler. "This game is going to stick with us for a while. They tought us a lesson."
