Perkins took care of Hakeem Olajuwon and his Seattle SuperSonics teammates did the rest Shawn Kemp had 22 points and 15 rebounds and Perkins battled Olajuwon to a standoff as the Sonics held off the Houston Rockets for a 106101 victory and 11 tie in their Western Conference semifinal series Wednesday night We did more of everything Kemp said Whatever it took to win we did it Sam held his position He used his arms against Hakeem and was active and didnt let Hakeem catch the ball where he wanted Now the SuperSonics are going home for Game 3 on Friday night having accomplished their mission of getting at least one victory in The Summit Going 02 would have made it tough to come back We didnt want to be in that Kemp said Perkins who started only four games at cen ter during the regular season had 18 points hit all four of his free throws and was 4for9 from 3point range Olajuwon a perennial AllStar finished with 19 points and 12 rebounds We put pressure on them and tried to get good shots on every Perkins said The game was decided by our aggressiveness on Seattle coach George Karl decided to give Perkins a rare start Sam is just a guy that I believe Karl said Hes been a big part of our success against Houston He knows our halfcourt traps a little better and Hakeem doesnt like to chase him around the Hersey Hawkins had 21 points for the SuperSonics 17 in the first half when Seattle built a 6547 lead with a 318 charge in the final The Rockets made it interesting in the second half They scored nine straight points to cut NBA Playoffs Wednesdays Games New York 88 Miami 79 New York

The spurt featured a threepoint play by Olajuwon a 3 pointer by Clyde Drexler a tip by Olajuwon and a free throw by Mario Elie But Perkins who started only four games in the regular season then hit a 3pointer to put the Sonics up 9388 and they held on behind the scoring of Kemp and Detlef Schrempf Kemp scored seven points and Schrempf made four free throws down the stretch for Seattle which was 31of33 from the line We used the doubleteam a lot and we got Karl said This series is just begin ning Hopefully we can hold the serve this weekend Mentally I didnt think we were ready to play the first game In the second quarter tonight we started playing basketball and in the second half it became a mens Olajuwon said the game wasnt decided by his matchup with Perkins We play against Seattle we dont play against one Olajuwon said They just played much harder and tougher than we expect ed They wanted it more than Drexler led the Rockets with 25 points and eight assists Charles Barkley finished with 21 points including a pair of banked 3pointers in the final minute I think their backs were against the Drexler said They had to go for broke I think our defense was better and we executed our offense better in the second half I was disap pointed a little with our intensity level Id like to see us get back to the intensity we had in Game Former Bulgarian coach comes to Texas
