Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Rashard Lewis scored 23 points and Gary Payton and Desmond Mason added 20 apiece as the Seattle SuperSonics posted a 90-77 victory over the Chicago Bulls. Lewis led the team in scoring for the third straight game and 14th time overall while Payton scored eight points during a decisive 14-0 run in the third quarter that extended Seattle's lead to 59-44 with 5:08 remaining. Mason made the most of his ninth start, finishing 7-of-12 from the floor while grabbing eight rebounds. While Payton, Lewis and Mason were leading Seattle on offense, coach Nate McMillan praised Reggie Evans' defensive efforts. "I think in the second half, Reggie Evans set the tone with his defensive pressure, extending the defense 94 feet, shadowing, rebounding the ball, and he had, what five or six offensive rebounds, to give us momentum and that energy to get the crowd into the game, and you know our guys fed off that," McMillian said. Evans grabbed 12 rebounds in 32 minutes, helping Seattle to a 51-40 advantage on the glass, including a 35-26 edge on the defensive side. "It's real good," Evans said. "Coach was telling us after the last game to just think about the next game, be ready and just come out and play real hard. That's what we did tonight." Jalen Rose made the first basket of the second half before Payton started the decisive run with a short jumper with 11:19 left in the period. Payton added another jumper and capped the spurt with a free throw. As Seattle was pulling away, the Bulls shot just 3-of-17 in the third quarter and committed four turnovers. The SuperSonics outscored the Bulls, 25-12, in the third and never let their lead fall below 11 as they rebounded from Thursday's 95-77 loss to the Sacramento Kings. The second half was Seattle's undoing against Sacramento, when it was outscored 12-2 early in the fourth quarter, turning a close game into a rout. But that didn't happen Saturday as the Sonics got the ball inside and made 32-of-41 free throws, 11-of-13 in the decisive quarter, and took a 70-54 lead into the fourth. The Bulls attempted to get back in it, going on a 10-4 spurt that closed its deficit to 82-71 following Jamal Crawford's fast break layup with 1:49 remaining But Payton answered with a fastbreak layup and fellow point guard Kenny Anderson's 17-footer upped Seattle's lead to 86-73 with 53 seconds to play. "The guys we had tonight just were not aggressive," Bulls coach Bill Cartwright said. "They were just more aggressive than us inside and it hurt us. It's disappointing to watch." Cartwright's team scored 41 fourth-quarter points, hit six 3-pointers and rallied from a 13-point deficit in last season's 97-91 win in Seattle, but he watched his young squad shoot just 30 percent (12-of-40) over the final 24 minutes Saturday. "Much respect to the Sonics, they came out and played hard," Rose said. "When we made mistakes and when we missed shots, they found ways to capitalize. It probably wasn't a game of beauty, especially in the third quarter." Chicago, which placed reserve forward Marcus Fizer on the injured list with a right knee sprain before the game, got 23 points from Rose. Rose shot 10-of-25 from the floor as the Bulls suffered their fourth straight road loss and fell to a league-worst 2-23 away from home. Rose had 12 points in the first half but was scoreless over the final nine minutes as the Sonics erased a 39-28 deficit and took a 45-42 advantage into the locker room. Eddy Curry's driving layup gave Chicago its largest lead, but Lewis started the comeback with a a 3-pointer and Payton's free throws gave the Sonics the lead for good with 1:22 remaining in the first half. "I challenged this team at halftime to come out, be aggressive defensively and put this game away," McMillan said. "I thought that even though we played pretty good in the first half, we could have played better."
