San Antonio back at home

SAN ANTONIO ( news services) -- After two straight home victories, the Seattle SuperSonics must figure out how to win at the site of the league's best home-court advantage.

The SuperSonics, who won back-to-back games on their home floor to knot the series at 2-2, visit the San Antonio Spurs in Game Five of the Western Conference semifinals on Tuesday.

Rashard Lewis, who injured his left big toe in Game 3 and did not play Sunday, will be a game-time decision.

"I'm not saying I'm out," he told the Seattle Times on Monday. "I'm still trying to do everything I can do to try to get out on the floor, but I'm not going to put myself in a situation where I can't perform at all and I get out there and I can't do nothing.

"I can't run and can't jump. I feel like Damien [Wilkins] is in much better shape right now than I would be."

Coach Nate McMillan told the paper he'll consult with trainer Mike Shimensky and Lewis before making his lineup decision.

Without Lewis, Ray Allen scored 32 points and Luke Ridnour added a playoff career-high 20 for Seattle in a 101-89 triumph in Game 4.

Ridnour, who made all seven of his shots, scored 15 points in the third quarter and helped spark a 12-1 run after the game was tied, 54-54.

Antonio Daniels scored 19 points and Wilkins came off the bench to add 15 to help offset the loss of Lewis.

The Spurs return to the place where they went 38-3 during the regular season and hope to recapture the magic that led them to a pair of double-dight victories to open the series.

Tim Duncan scored 35 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for San Antonio, which committed a season-high 23 turnovers and lost Sunday despite a 40-32 rebounding edge. Manu Ginobili scored 15 points and Tony Parker added 12 for the Spurs.

The series heads back to Seattle for Game Six on Thursday.
