Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- If there were any questions left regarding the talent level of the Seattle SuperSonics, they may have been answered Tuesday at the Target Center. Rashard Lewis tied a season-high with 27 points and Ray Allen added 24 as Seattle posted a commanding 103-92 triumph over the Minnesota Timberwolves. With the best record in the sport, Seattle won for the 10th time in 12 games and did so in one of the hardest places in the league to come away with a victory. Lewis and Allen had 3-pointers in a 9-0 burst that closed the second quarter and Minnesota never got closer than eight points the rest of the way. Vladimir Radmanovic made 7-of-11 shots off the bench, finished with 12 points and had 11 rebounds for the Sonics, who have won their 10 games by an average of 13.3 points. The start is the best for the club since the 1993-94 squad started 11-1. "This win does a lot for us," said Lewis. "It gives us more confidence as a team. We are definitely playing some of our best basketball right now. We were written off before the season. We're trying to earn some respect, but I think I like it that way. I'd rather be the underdog." Over the last four-plus seasons, Minnesota is 126-43 at home. "I think Minnesota's been in this situation probably three or four times this season, where they've been down 10 or 15 points and they've come back to win games," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "That team knows how to win, and we couldn't relax. We played two pretty good quarters and we needed to finish that with two pretty good quarters, and I think we did that." "You have to tip your hat to them," Timberwolves guard Fred Hoiberg said. "They're playing well. They're having a great early part of the season. They're shooting the ball extremely well. Next time we play them, we need to go at them a little more aggressively." Kevin Garnett was held to 16 points as Minnesota had a two-game winning streak snapped. Wally Szczerbiak also scored 16 for the Timberwolves, who trailed by as many as 22 in the second half. Minnesota had won 10 of the last 11 meetings between the squads here. "It better not be like this game all year," said Szczerbiak. "We need to find a way to reverse this. We didn't play very well, and got our (tails) kicked. We can't let people do this to us at home." Radmanovic kept Seattle in the game early, scoring 11 points in the opening quarter as the Sonics built a 26-24 edge. He was 4-of-4 in the period, the rest of Seattle was 5-of-18. The Sonics were clinging to a 54-50 lead with 97 seconds left in the half when Lewis buried a 3-pointer off a feed from Antonio Daniels. Lewis added a free throw 44 seconds later and Allen made it 61-50 with a 3-pointer off a pass from Reggie Evans with 26 seconds remaining. Daniels capped the decisive spurt with a driving layup at the second-quarter buzzer. Seattle made 12-of-18 shots and 9-of-10 free throws in the period. Lewis had nine points in the third quarter, when the Sonics pushed their lead to 22.
