Game Story

INGLEWOOD, California (Ticker) -- Gary Payton totaled 33 points and nine assists as the Seattle SuperSonics held off the Los Angeles Lakers, 113-109, for their first road win over a winning team.

Vin Baker added 27 points and Hersey Hawkins 20 for Seattle, which used a 10-2 run to snap an 88-88 tie, then nearly blew a nine-point lead in the final 24 seconds. The SuperSonics held on and have posted wins over Portland and Los Angeles in their last three games around a loss to lowly Vancouver.

"If you can figure this team out let me know because we beat Portland, Houston and LA and lost to Vancouver and Denver," said Sonics coach Paul Westphal. "The good news is that if we make the playoffs we don't have to play Vancouver or Denver, we'll play good teams in the playoffs. It's crazy."

The win pushed the SuperSonics into seventh place in the Western Conference, one-half game ahead of the Phoenix Suns. The Sonics have won two of three games against the Lakers and they meet again at Seattle on May 2.

"You can't call this the biggest win of the season, we still got 14 games to go," said Payton, who has averaged 31 points against Los Angeles in three games. "When we get into the playoffs and if we have to win a game, that's the biggest win of the season. But right now we're just surviving."

Shaquille O'Neal scored a season-high 38 points and Kobe Bryant added 25 and nine assists before fouling out for the Lakers, who played without flu-ridden starting forward Glen Rice.

A dunk by O'Neal lifted the Lakers into an 88-88 tie with 6:54 to play, but a 3-pointer by Hawkins triggered the game-breaking run. The Lakers lost the ball in a scramble on the ensuing possession that resulted in a jump ball and coach Kurt Rambis was called for a technical foul.

"I shouldn't have gotten a technical," said Rambis. "I was made at the time. It was clearly a wrong call. Shaq should've had it, he was sitting on the ball."

"We were tied up and then a controversial call came into play, and I think that took our momentum away a little bit, but I don't want to use that as an excuse," said O'Neal. "Until we learn how to overcome those silly mistakes in the third and fourth quarter, we aren't going anywhere."

Sonics center Olden Polynice, who forced the jump ball, had no problems with the call.

"Shaq and Dennis (Rodman) didn't know where the ball was," he said. "They were laying on the ground and the ball was in between Shaquille's legs and Tyronn (Lue) and I had our hands on the ball. I thought that (the technical) got us going, we made a nice run, built a nice lead and probably pulled it out. They play like that sometimes though, you got to think out there and not just use athletic ability."

Hawkins hit the free throw to make it 92-88 before Lue made an 18-footer to cut the deficit to two. But Payton, after missing a 3-pointer, sliced into the lane for a seven-footer over O'Neal and worked a pick-and-roll with Baker, who hit an 18-foot jumper to give Seattle a 96-90 lead with 3:57 to play.

On the Lakers' ensuing possession, Hawkins picked off a pass by Lue and fed Payton, who had a fast-break dunk to cap the run and give Seattle a 98-90 advantage. Baker threw down an emphatic dunk to complete an alley-oop from Payton that provided a 102-95 lead with just under one minute left.

The Sonics seemed to have the game in hand as Dale Ellis and Hawkins combine to sink six free throws in a five-second span to make it 109-100. But Robert Horry had a 3-pointer and O'Neal a three-point play around a free throw by Ellis that made it 110-106 with 11.5 seconds to go.

Hawkins hit a free throw before Derek Fisher nailed a 3-pointer to pull the Lakers within 111-109. But Ellis sealed the victory with two free throws with 4.7 seconds to go.

Payton and Baker scored seven points apiece in a 14-3 tear in the third quarter, opening a 77-67 lead with 2:42 to go. Los Angeles countered with a 10-3 tear to close the period, pulling within 81-77.

"We lost the game in the third quarter," said Rodman, who finished with six points and 13 rebounds. "Basically, that is what it was. We lost the game. You know, we lost the game and that's what matters."

Los Angeles outscored Seattle 40-24 in the paint in the first half, but the Sonics outscored the Lakers 30-26 in the second. Seattle shot 48 percent (37-of-77) from the field and outrebounded the Lakers, 59-45.

"I don't understand," O'Neal said about not getting the ball more. "When you're the best big man in basketball, why you want to come down and take ill-advised shots, especially when the team is not doubling and I'm hot. No matter whom it is, you have to go to who is hot rather than take ill-advised Rex Chapman jumpers."

Payton was 12-of-24 from the field while Baker sank 10-of-20. Ellis had 10 points off the bench, hitting 7-of-8 from the line. Seattle sank 31-of-43 foul shots, including 13-of-17 in the fourth quarter.

O'Neal connected on 18-of-30 from the field but 2-of-8 from the line. The Lakers shot 50 percent (43-of-86). Fisher and Lue combined for 22 points off the bench as the Lakers' reserves outscored Seattle's, 30-15.
