The Sonics cut the lead to 61-55 at the intermission but Greer hit for 12 more points in the third quarter. The Sonics came as close as three points several times as Al Tucker, who paced the losers with 27 points, kept the score close.
Bill Cunningham hit for 10 of his 21 points in the closing quarter to put the victory out of reach. The 76ers led 89-86, but Cunningham sparked a 22-14 burst, opening the lead to 111-100 and that was as close as the Sonics came.
