Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- The Seattle SuperSonics welcomed back Ray Allen, but they were a little too welcoming to Latrell Sprewell and Kevin Garnett. Sprewell scored 31 points and Garnett added 29 and 10 rebounds as the Minnesota Timberwolves overcame 37 points by Allen in a 105-92 triumph over the SuperSonics. Minnesota, which had lost three of its prior four games, held just a 79-77 lead after a 3-pointer by Seattle's Vladimir Radmanovic 90 seconds into the fourth quarter. The Timberwolves responded with a 9-0 run. Sprewell hit 5-of-6 free throws during the burst, which ended on a layup by Wally Szczerbiak that made it 88-77 with 8:06 remaining. Garnett took over thereafter, scoring nine points during a stretch that opened up an 18-point cushion. He exited soon after sinking a jumper that made it 104-86 with 2:23 left. "We picked things up," said Minnesota coach Flip Saunders, whose team held a 45-35 rebounding advantage. "We struggled a little bit early at times. Overall we started to rebound a little bit. We got a little more movement from our offense and we started sharing the basketball." The Timberwolves opened up a three-game lead over San Antonio atop the Midwest Division. Allen, who had missed Seattle's 86-65 home loss to Detroit on Sunday with the flu, made 13-of-24 shots and 9-of-11 free throws for the SuperSonics, who have lost 17 of their last 21 contests. "I felt better," Allen said. "I just focused on what I had to do here tonight. My first couple times down the floor I was tired and after that my body took over and I totally forgot about it, and just played and it was good." "Ray really kept us close and gave us an opportunity to be in this game with his shooting," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "I thought we did a good job of moving and getting him shots in different parts of the floor. You just need other guys to hit shots when they are open." Sprewell connected on 11-of-23 shots after going just 1-of-9 in a four-point effort in a loss to Boston on Sunday. "I could tell before that he was a little more focused," Saunders said. "He knows how he's played. He came out extremely aggressive and we did some things to run a few more sets to try and get him loose a little bit. What he did is that he really got out in the open floor. That's the thing that he can do. If he does that, he makes it extremely difficult to defend him." "I credit everything to Latrell tonight - getting our energy up and getting going and starting out really aggressive," Garnett said. Seattle held a 41-31 lead after a layup by Vitaly Potapenko with 6:15 left in the second quarter and took a 52-48 edge into the break. The SuperSonics held a 69-63 advantage before the Timberwolves scored 12 straight points late in the third quarter, taking the lead for good, 70-69, on a fadeaway jumper by Garnett with 2:09 left as the shot clock was about to expire. "We have fun playing basketball, but we need to have fun winning," Allen said. "It's tough to reflect back on the season when most of it has been done through losses."
