Seattle, the undisputed champ of the Pacific Northwest, beat the Trail Blazers in the first three games between the teams this year, outscoring Portland by a total of 21 points in the fourth quarter. To avoid a sweep, the Blazers need more production from Arvydas Sabonis, who has averaged a modest 14.0 points and 6.0 rebounds against the Sonics' center by committee.
