GAME RECAP

Gary Payton shook off a pair of injuries to score 12 of his 27 points in the final quarter as the Seattle SuperSonics earned their third win as many tries against the Los Angeles Lakers this season, 101-89.

Detlef Schrempf added 21 points and also scored 12 in the final period for the Sonics, who blew a 21-point lead before winning their fourth straight game and extending their lead over the Lakers in the Pacific Division to four games.

Shaquille O'Neal scored 25 points and Eddie Jones added 20 for the Lakers, whose six-game winning streak was their second-longest of the season. Nick Van Exel chipped in 10 points in 22 minutes off the bench in his second game off the injured list.

"This was a good win for us because it keeps us up on them," Payton said. "They were really playing very well so it was very good for us to win. We needed to make a statement against these guys and we did."

Van Exel completed the Lakers' comeback from 21 points down when his two free throws tied the game at 74-74 with 8:18 left in the fourth quarter. But Schrempf responded with a 15-footer and a five-footer to put the Sonics in front for good at 78-74 with 7:18 to play.

O'Neal sank a pair of free throws to make it a two-point game, but Schrempf scored six straight Seattle points around one foul shot by O'Neal to increase the Sonics' lead to 84-77 with 5:42 to play.

Payton took over from there, nailing consecutive three-pointers with 4:18 to play and again at the 3:47 mark to give the Sonics a 90-77 bulge. Hersey Hawkins capped the 17-3 surge with a technical foul shot four seconds later and the Lakers did not get closer than four points thereafter.

The Sonics led by four points after one quarter, but used a 17-4 surge early in the second period to build a 40-25 cushion on a layup by Schrempf with 6:39 remaining in the half. The Lakers got within 40-32 after a flurry by Jones, but Seattle scored 20 of the final 27 points of the half and opened its largest lead when Payton drilled a three-pointer with 9.7 seconds left in the half to make it 60-39 at the break.

The Lakers stormed back in the third, helped by Payton's injuries. Just over a minute into the period, an injury to his left shoulder forced him to go into the locker room. He returned but was forced to the bench with just over 6 1/2 minutes left when he took an elbow to the hip.

"In the first half we played probably as well as we did in a long time against a good team," Seattle coach George Karl said. "And then in the second half Gary got hit and I couldn't tell if he could play or not and offensively we just didn't get anything done very well."

Payton was asked if he thought the elbow was intentional.

"Well, probably so," he said. "But I'm not going to be a crybaby and talk about it. Everthing is going to come back to somebody, and he and I will work it out when the time comes."

Meanwhile, O'Neal and Jones combined for 18 points in the period as Los Angeles outscored Seattle, 25-11, to close within 71-66 entering the fourth. The Sonics were just 4-of-15 in the period.

"I felt good about the way our guys came back," Los Angeles coach Del Harris said. "In the first half the Sonics played about as well as any team we've seen play a half and it was tough for us. We probably dug a little too big of a hole on the second night of a back-to-back."

Vin Baker scored 21 points and Sam Perkins added 10 for the Sonics, who shot 51 percent (33-of-65) from the field. Payton handed out nine assists.

Derek Fisher finished with 13 points for the Lakers, who shot 42.5 percent (31-of-73) and outrebounded the Sonics, 38-32.
