The Seattle SuperSonics have the NBA's best record. The way the Chicago Bulls are playing, that might not be the case for much longer. "With a team like that, it's hard to make statements," Michael Jordan said last night after he shook off a cold to score 40 points and lead the Bulls to a 101-91 victory over the visiting Sonics. "But we feel that if we had our team intact all season long . . . we would have the best record. " At 26-11, the Bulls are three games behind Seattle (29-8)

The Seattle SuperSonics had the Atlanta Hawks right where they wanted them. But they couldn't keep them there. "We let them wake up, and they did," Seattle coach George Karl said after watching Dominique Wilkins, Mookie Blaylock and Craig Ehlo spark a fourth- quarter rally that helped the host Hawks erase a 13-point deficit in a 99-92 victory. Wilkins, Blaylock and Ehlo accounted for all the scoring in a 19-0 run that came just after the SuperSonics had stretched their lead to 80-67 in the opening seconds of the final quarter.

Nearly five years after the SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma City, the NBA is one step closer to returning to Seattle, while the Kings are on the verge of leaving Sacramento. All that appears to stand in the way now is approval by NBA owners. The Maloof family has agreed to sell the Kings to a Seattle group led by investor Chris Hansen, the league confirmed in a statement Monday morning. The deal is still pending a vote by the NBA board of governors. The Kings franchise began with the Rochester Royals in 1945, and made stops in Cincinnati, Kansas City and Omaha before arriving Sacramento.

The hottest team in the NBA was so cold last night, it could almost joke about it. The San Antonio Spurs set franchise lows in scoring and shooting and saw their 15-game winning streak snapped by the visiting Portland Trail Blazers, 91-71. The 15-game winning streak was a franchise record for San Antonio and was the longest in the NBA this season. "It was just one of those games. You can either laugh or cry about it, and I'd rather laugh," Spurs forward Terry Cummings said.

Larry Hughes, the 76ers' blue- chip rookie, was just plain blue. He played seven, count 'em, seven scoreless, ineffective minutes in last night's 93-92 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. "He didn't deserve to play seven," Sixers coach Larry Brown said, responding to a question during his postgame press conference. "I didn't play Aaron [McKie] Sunday. I gave Larry a chance. He didn't deserve to be out there, Aaron deserved to be out there. " McKie, who appeared for less than a minute in the 78-70 victory over Atlanta, went 17 minutes last night.

Shaquille O'Neal was present during a botched child pornography raid last month while working in Virginia as a reserve sheriff's deputy. The Miami Heat center, who pursues his interest in law enforcement during the offseason, denied yesterday taking part in serving the search warrant at the wrong house Sept. 23. However, Bedford County Sheriff's Lt. Michael Harmony confirmed to the Associated Press that O'Neal was there. O'Neal, in Orlando to play a preseason game, was asked yesterday about the raid and several times somewhat playfully responded, "It wasn't me. " The 13-time All-Star has expressed an interest in becoming a Bedford deputy or sheriff somewhere else after his NBA career ends.

Chicago Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf reiterated that he didn't think the team's refusal to speak with the media, an action that resulted in a $50,000 fine, was aimed as a message at him. The Chicago Tribune, citing team sources, reported yesterday that the silence was planned to show the team's general displeasure, particularly concerning the future of coach Phil Jackson. Bulls players are annoyed with Reinsdorf's perceived disinterest in re-signing Jackson and keeping the defending NBA champions together.

Seattle coach George Karl keeps saying the SuperSonics can profit from learning something in each game of the NBA Finals. Careful, George. Class is about to be dismissed. Seattle, down 3-0 in the best-of-seven series after last night's 108-86 loss to the Chicago Bulls, learned last night that it is a mistake to dismiss Bulls center Luc Longley from the game plan. Longley, who had just two points and three rebounds in 25 minutes of Game 2, came rushing back in Game 3 with a playoff career-high 19 points in 28 minutes.

Seattle SuperSonics owner Clay Bennett could end up paying $75 million to move the NBA franchise to Oklahoma City this year, and he will not be taking the team's name or colors with him. Bennett yesterday agreed to settle a lawsuit with the City of Seattle, bringing an end to a contentious relationship and allowing the team to move. Bennett said the settlement calls for a payment of $45 million immediately, and could include another $30 million, unless the city obtains a new NBA franchise by 2013.

A few months ago, Texas star Kevin Durant took in a meaningless regular-season game between San Antonio and visiting Seattle, believing then that his likely NBA destination would be Memphis or Boston. Yesterday morning, Durant spent about 45 minutes working out for SuperSonics officials, almost certain that his professional future will begin in the Pacific Northwest. "For [Seattle] to get [the No. 2 pick] was kind of shocking. It was kind of something different," Durant said yesterday, wearing a lime-colored shirt that didn't quite match Seattle's shade of green.

I am terrified of Home Depot. And Lowe's. And places like them. Oh, sure, I watch all the TV commercials that show helpful store personnel in orange aprons skillfully demonstrating the latest in power tools to smiling customers. Everybody looks delighted. Me? I break out in a cold sweat every time I walk into one of these places and take in miles of aisles offering merchandise to build, remodel, renovate or demolish just about anything ever constructed. I have this recurring nightmare in which I'm stranded in the middle of the store, unable to find an exit.

The Dallas Mavericks weren't too happy about losing their 12-game winning streak, and the struggling New Jersey Nets wound up paying for it. Dirk Nowitzki scored 26 points and Josh Howard added 23 to lead Dallas past New Jersey last night in East Rutherford, N.J., 92-75. In its 106-97 loss at Washington on Monday, Dallas played lethargically until late in the game and at one point trailed by 31 points before rallying in the fourth quarter. Coach Avery Johnson detected a somber mood on the trip north.
