Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Ray Allen gave the Seattle SuperSonics' fans reason to believe the blockbuster trade was worth it. Allen scored 23 points and Rashard Lewis added 22 as the SuperSonics won their third straight home game, an 86-79 victory over the Detroit Pistons. Playing in his first home contest since being acquired in the trading deadline deal that sent superstar Gary Payton to Milwaukee, Allen collected 10 points in the fourth quarter to help the Sonics split their season series with the Pistons. "I think at the end of the game, the ball is going go to the guys that can put the ball in the basket," Allen said. "I like to have the ball at the end of the game so I can find those guys to make plays. But at the end of the game, I am ready to take the shot." After the game, Allen was given a standing ovation as he acknowledged the crowd of 15,718 at KeyArena. "It was awesome," Allen said. "I was so pleased to feel welcomed. ... That was one of my biggest worries, was coming in and not being welcomed. The fans just didn't know me and they were losing such a great guy and a great player. I just have to come in here and play hard." The Sonics held a three-point lead with just over four minutes left when Lewis hit a free throw to spark an 8-2 burst. Predrag Drobnjak capped the surge, hitting a jumper with 89 seconds remaining that opened an 84-75 cushion. Richard Hamilton scored 22 points on 7-of-11 shooting for the Pistons, who have dropped three straight games after winning nine of 10. They had not lost three in a row since November 30-December 7. "It's not where we would like to be," Pistons coach Rick Carlisle said. "But at the same time, we've got to learn from this. The style we play - particularly on a tough western road trip - is going to be important. We're not going to have a lot of margin for error." Allen had his second strong outing for the Sonics since the trade. He finished an assist shy of his second career triple-double on Sunday, collecting 26 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists in his Sonics debut - a 106-101 loss against the Los Angeles Lakers. The departed Payton is the Sonics' all-time leader with 16 triple-doubles. "When they traded Gary, I knew the aura surrounding him," Allen said. "He's been an icon in this city for a long time. A lot of people were upset and I never wanted to come in and fill his shoes. I just wanted to come in here, do my job and help the team win." Against Detroit, Allen hit two of Seattle's four 3-pointers, went 7-of-8 from the line and chipped in eight assists. "The guy does such a good job of moving without the ball," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "The fact that he can handle the ball and pass the ball makes him very dangerous. "He doesn't hold on to the ball. If people are open, he is delivering the ball. It's difficult to play him because he really stretches defenses." In addition to the 10 points, Allen had two assists and all three of his rebounds in the final 12 minutes. The Sonics were trailing by two just over a minute into the fourth when Allen nailed a shot from beyond the arc with 10:51 to play and put the Sonics ahead, 63-62. The four-time All-Star fed Kevin Ollie for a jumper less than 40 seconds later to increase Seattle's advantage to three. Allen collected the ensuing defensive rebound and Jerome James buried a jumper for a 67-62 lead with 9:38 to go. "In Milwaukee, he was asked to do only a certain amount of things," Sonics guard Brent Barry said. "Now, he's going to have the opportunity to do more. You're seeing just the raw talent that he's got. It's just a matter of developing guys around him." Allen then put home consecutive driving layups and Seattle's lead grew to 71-62 with just under nine minutes left. Allen made 3-of-4 from the line in the span of just over a minute and gave Seattle an 82-75 lead with 1:57 to go. Allen then pulled down a defensive rebound and fed Drobnjak for the jumper that increased the Sonics' advantage to nine.
