Game Story

DALLAS (Ticker) -- Facing the lowly Dallas Mavericks was just what the Seattle SuperSonics needed.

Gary Payton and Detlef Schrempf each scored 20 points as the SuperSonics opened a 21-point lead midway through the fourth quarter and cruised to a 109-101 victory over Dallas.

Seattle held off a Mavericks' rally in the final minutes and avoided falling to the .500 mark for the first time since splitting the first two games of last season.

"Our goal is to be aggressive and set the tone early," Schrempf said. "We have been saying that, but that's what we need to do every game."

Schrempf was 7-of-10 from the field and grabbed nine rebounds in 32 minutes.

"I had some postups for the first time in a long time, instead of just going to the basket," he added. "My turnaround jumper was falling. When you have a good feel for it, why not just stick with it?"

The Sonics rebounded from Sunday's 104-87 loss at Detroit and improved to only 4-9 on the road. Seattle (15-13) has gone 9-13 since starting the season 6-0 under first-year coach Paul Westphal.

"Our team knows we have to win some road games and after that game yesterday, we were anxious to be able to play again," Westphal said.

The Sonics never trailed after struggling to defeat Dallas at home, 92-86, in the season opener on February 5. Seattle jumped to a 15-4 lead midway through the first quarter and never looked back.

"We have to come out energized for our team to get going," Sonics center Olden Polynice said. "We've got to be very energetic and very vocal and play with a lot of emotion. I thought we did a good job of that tonight."

After the Sonics built a 94-73 lead on Schrempf's layup with 4:13 remaining in the fourth quarter, Dallas ripped off a 9-0 run and pulled within 95-83 on Erick Strickland's steal and layup with 3:02 left.

A 3-pointer by Hubert Davis and a three-point play by Dirk Nowitski cut the deficit to 102-94, but Seattle restored its double-figure advantage on Rashard Lewis' free throw and Drew Barry's 3-pointer.

"We knew we had to come out with energy and I thought all the starters did," Westphal added.

Gary Trent scored 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting for the Mavericks, who have dropped seven of their last nine. Trent returned after missing Saturday's loss at San Antonio due to a stomach virus.

After scoring 15 points on 4-of-20 shooting in the third quarter, the Mavericks erupted for a season-high 44 points in the fourth, going 16-of-26 from the field.

Seattle starters made 27-of-49 shots from the field, compared to only 18-of-53 for the Mavericks. Discounting Trent, Dallas shot 38 percent (30-of-80) as a team.

"They jumped out on us quick and if you don't come out right away, that's what's going to happen," Strickland said. "You get yourself in a hole. Then we were fighting an uphill battle the whole night."

The Sonics opened a 15-4 lead on Billy Owens' layup with 6:40 left in the first period. But Dallas climbed within 38-34 on Trent's basket with 4:13 left before halftime.

Seattle responded with a 12-3 spurt, taking a 50-37 lead on Dale Ellis' 3-pointer. Dallas scored the last seven points of the period to make it 50-44 at the break.

But the Sonics took control in the third quarter, outscoring the Mavericks, 27-15. Seattle extended their advantage to 77-57 on Payton's turnaround jumper in the lane with 14 seconds left in the period.

"This was a not a good effort by our team," Dallas coach Don Nelson said. "I'm a little surprised. I really thought we would be ready to play tonight. This is what I considered a winnable game for us. The bottom line is we just had a hard time controlling Payton. He played a terrific game."

Owens added 15 points for the Sonics while Polynice grabbed 12 rebounds. John Crotty chipped in with 11 points.

Strickland contributed 17 points for the Mavericks and Samaki Walker pulled down a season-high 13 rebounds. Michael Finley scored 13 points and Shawn Bradley had 12.

"I thought they had control of the game from beginning to end," Walker said. "We have to come out with energy, and we never came out with energy."
