The game was a matchup of the NBA's winningest teams: San Antonio came in at 16-3 and riding an eight-game streak, while the SuperSonics were 15-3 and had won six of their last seven.

Seattle looked like a runaway winner early, using 58 percent shooting from the floor to build a 19-point lead at the half.

But the Spurs came out running after the break, and eventually whittled Seattle's lead to 83-81 on a reverse layup by Malik Rose with 6:36 remaining. Allen followed with a 3-pointer and Danny Fortson made two free throws and a layup to make it 90-81
