Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Rashard Lewis scored 13 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter as the Seattle SuperSonics kept alive their slim playoff hopes with an 82-80 victory over the Utah Jazz. Lewis made his final four shots. For the second straight game, his big fourth quarter kept Seattle (38-38) on the edge of the postseason race. He made 9-of-17 shots, with his biggest a 3-pointer with 34 seconds left that was just its second basket in a span of over five minutes and gave the SuperSonics an 81-80 lead. "We keep talking about keeping hope alive, living to see another day and basically that's what it's about for us," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "We can't really be concerned about the other teams in front of us. We have to worry about ourselves and winning games. We just can't afford to lose games and these guys have responded with good efforts in all these games and have pulled out some squeakers." "The 3-point shot Lewis made was a backbreaker for us," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "We still had a chance, but the ball didn't go in the basket." Two nights after hitting a pair of 3-pointers in the final four minutes of a win over the Los Angeles Clippers, Lewis again emerged as Seattle's hero down the stretch. One possession after he had missed an open jumper, Allen found Lewis alone on the left wing and he easily made his second 3-pointer of the game. "A lot of people are thinking about when it comes to the fourth quarter, who are the Sonics going to go?" Sonics guard Brent Barry said. "Rashard has come up big for us in many situations and in two straight games, he has given us the 3-pointer that has given us the win. So he is stepping up and taking some big shots the last couple of weeks and that can only be a positive for our team." "It was a resemblance to the last game," Allen added. "I'm starting to get a lot more comfortable with the guys and where they're going to be." Lewis also was big defensively, coming up with a key steal on Karl Malone with 10 seconds left. After his steal, he split a pair at the line for the final margin. The SuperSonics won for the fifth time in six games and moved within two games of Phoenix for the eighth and final playoff berth in the Western Conference. The Jazz roared all the way back from a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit and still had a chance to win until Matt Harpring left a 3-pointer short at the buzzer. Utah failed in a bid to clinch its 20th consecutive playoff berth. "I don't think this team has any reason to look ahead," Malone said. "Hopefully that's not the case. We are a team that plays one game at a time. The two we've played here lately doesn't seem like we've been looking at these too much." In the final period, Utah missed 12 of its first 15 shots. But Malone's jumper capped a 16-2 spurt that gave the Jazz an 80-79 lead with 45 seconds remaining. The teams entered the fourth period tied at 60-60. But it took just over 5 1/2 minutes for the Sonics to build a 76-62 advantage on a 3-pointer by Lewis. Malone, who was held scoreless for the first time in his career in his last visit to Seattle on November 3, scored half his 22 points in the fourth quarter and seven during Utah's late spurt. Seattle posted its latest victory despite shooting under 39 percent (31-of-80). The Sonics made up for their shooting difficulties by clicking at 37 percent (31-of-80) from the arc and holding the Jazz to 43 percent (24-of-56) from the floor after the first quarter. Allen finished with 18 points and Predrag Drobnjak added 12 of his 17 in the third quarter, helping Seattle overcome a 10-point deficit in the opening minutes of the second half. Coming off Friday's overtime loss to the New York Knicks in which they shot 1-of-11 in the extra period, the Jazz got off to a quick start, shooting 57 percent in the first quarter and bolting to a 23-12 lead. But they made just two baskets in the final six minutes of the second quarter and settled for a 38-35 halftime lead. Besides failing to clinch a playoff berth, Utah also dropped one game behind the sixth-place Los Angeles Lakers.
