Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- It may be time to re-evaluate the Gary Payton trade. Ray Allen had 21 points and nine assists to lead a balanced attack as the Seattle SuperSonics continued to flourish with their new look, rolling to a 93-76 victory over the woeful Atlanta Hawks. When the SuperSonics dealt all-time leading scorer Payton and Desmond Mason to the Milwaukee Bucks at the trading deadline, most observers felt they had gotten the short end of the deal. Seattle received Allen, reserve guard Kevin Ollie and rookie guard Ron Murray in what appeared to be a step toward rebuilding. But Allen has breathed new life into the Sonics, while the Bucks have struggled since the trade. After Seattle beat Milwaukee by 30 points as all of the traded players sat out, the Sonics have won two of three, while the Bucks have lost two of three. Allen believes Payton's powerful persona may have been been holding back some of the Sonics. "There were a lot of guys on this team now that were looking to make positive contributions," Allen said. "I think that's the way Gary's personality was. He was so demonstrative, that a lot of guys didn't step up to that. Now it's a little more carefree around here. Guys can play basketball a little more than they were doing before." "This is a trade that had to take place," Ollie said. "I think it's good for Ray's career especially, a change of scenery. I think the trade is working out in our benefit now." Both players see some of the problems the trade has created for their old team. "Milwaukee's going to assess the trade next year," Allen said. "This is going to be a long-term thing. There's a lot of things they have to correct as a team." "They are getting a bunch of points, but they aren't stopping anybody," Ollie said. Rashard Lewis and Vladimir Radmanovic scored 15 points each for Seattle, which had five players in double figures as it won its fourth straight home game. "You have a responsibility to help this team win and to do your job and I think a lot of guys respect that and they want to go out and do it," Allen said. "Everybody seems to be on the same page and in the flow," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "Right now we are just doing a good job of playing solid team fundamental basketball." Ollie had eight points and three assists in a reserve role and Murray was scoreless in two minutes of garbage time. Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 19 points for the Hawks, who dropped to 1-4 on their seven-game road trip. "I don't like using that as an excuse," Hawks coach Terry Stotts said. "Every team plays four or five nights on the road." A reverse layup by Rashard Lewis gave Seattle the lead for good at 18-16 with 2:03 left in the first quarter. The Hawks were still was within 34-30 midway through the second quarter before the Sonics closed the first half with a 21-11 surge. Allen and Radmanovic each had a pair of 3-pointers and Brent Barry added a shot from the arc. Atlanta closed to 62-54 on a jumper by Glenn Robinson with 4:26 left in the third quarter. Predrag Drobnjak answered with a jumper and Jerome James had two free throws and a banker to rebuild the lead to 14 points. "We are getting a number of different things," McMillan said. "We are getting good play from our post-ups. Everyone is just playing well right now." Ollie had a pair of buckets in an 8-0 burst that gave Seattle its largest lead at 76-55 with 9:04 to play. Drobnjak scored 13 points and James added 11 for Seattle, which shot 44 percent (32-of-73) from the field, making 10-of-19 3-pointers. Robinson scored 15 points and Jason Terry added 14 for the Hawks, who shot 38 percent (26-of-68) and committed 20 turnovers. Atlanta was held below 80 points for the eighth time this season. "You want them to shoot all those threes, but if they're making them it's going to be a long night for you," Terry said. "You're trading three for two all night long and that's not going to get it done."
