Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Rashard Lewis scored 10 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter to help the Seattle SuperSonics break a three-game losing streak with a 107-100 victory over the Dallas Mavericks. Lewis also grabbed 10 rebounds, shot 12-of-18 from the floor and formed a formidable 1-2 punch with Ray Allen, who scored 29 points. "I was a little more aggressive," Lewis said. "I was playing with a lot of anger tonight. I think that's what made me play more aggressive. I guess somebody is gonna have to (tick) me off every night. I was just angry at the way I've been playing the last couple of ballgames and just the way we have lost three in a row." Neither team led by more than eight points. There were five ties and two lead changes in the fourth quarter before Kevin Ollie put Seattle ahead for good, 95-93, with a pair of free throws with 2:39 left. Dirk Nowitzki made 1-of-2 free throws at the other end, but Ollie extended Seattle's lead on a layup with 2:06 left. "You can focus in on me trying to penetrate and I found Kevin a couple of times," Allen said. "I should be insulted that they think I might not be able to pass a little bit. ... I found the open man." The Mavericks paid the price for a lack of defense as Allen drove past all of Dallas' "Big Three" - Steve Nash, Michael Finley and Nowitzki - before making a layup, drawing a foul on Nowitzki and completing the three-point play. "There was a breakdown in our defense for whatever reason," Mavericks coach Don Nelson said. "The bottom line was when they needed to score down the stretch, they found a way to do it." Nash made a jumper and Nowitzki split another pair of free throws to get Dallas within 100-97. Nowitzki led the Mavericks with 27 points and 12 rebounds. Again, Dallas had a total defensive breakdown. Lewis blew past Nowitzki at the top of the key and went down the right side before slamming down a thunderous dunk to give the Sonics a five-point lead with 37 seconds left. "Lewis' drive and dunk is not the way that your man-to-man defense can operate," Nelson said. "He drove around Nowitzki and at that time I know he's tired, but he's got to buckle down and guard him." "We really didn't get the stops when we needed to," Nowitzki added. "The past couple of games, we're not executing offensively and not getting the stops defensively at the end." The Mavericks still had a chance, but Finley missed a 3-pointer and Adrian Griffin stepped out of bounds after grabbing the offensive rebound. The Sonics hit 5-of-6 foul shots down the stretch to ice the win. "You can always highlight what happens down the stretch, but I think there were a lot of breakdowns throughout the game," Nash said. "We have to hold a team like that under 100 points, for sure, and we let them feel confident and comfortbale tonight." Nick Van Exel scored 26 points, including nine in the fourth quarter, and hit 3-of-6 3-pointers. But Dallas shot just 7-of-26 from long range. The Mavericks took their last lead with 8:38 left when Nowitzki drilled a 17-foot jumper to make it 85-83. Lewis hit a turnaround baseline jumper 54 seconds later to tie it and Elden Campbell made two free throws with 7:04 left to put Seattle up, 87-85. Dallas forged two more ties before falling behind for good. "I was happy at the fact that Rashard wanted the ball," Sonics coach Nate McMillan said. "He wanted to take responsibility and be a part. He asked for the ball. I like the fact that he wants the ball and he feels like he can make a difference. Tonight, he definitely did that." Lewis had his best offensive night since scoring a career-high 37 points on November 12 at Washington. "In the locker room before the game, we had the emphasis on Rashard being aggressive to start the game," Allen said. "He's a guy that is still trying to figure out exactly what he can give to this offense because he's extremely talented." Nash had 18 points on 8-of-15 shooting as the Mavericks shot 49 percent from the field (41-of-84). But they were outdone by the Sonics, who clicked at 50 percent (36-of-72) and got 14 points from reserve Vladimir Radmanovic. The Mavericks' lead over second-place San Antonio droped to 2 1/2 games in the Midwest Division. "They've been (playing) extremely well," Nowitzki said. "They've won a lot of games on the road and they've won 17 of 19. They're right behind us, so every win should be crucial right now. The last two losses we couldn't afford, but that's the way basketball goes. We just got to make sure we win tomorrow and find our rhythm again."
