Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- With most eyes trained on the supposed friction between Kobe Bryant and Ray Allen, Rashard Lewis stole the show to get the Seattle SuperSonics back into the win column at home. Lewis scored 17 of his season-high 37 points in the first quarter when the Sonics opened a big lead, helping his club cruise to a 108-93 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. It was the first meeting between the teams since a preseason matchup in Los Angeles, after which Sonics All-Star guard Allen questioned Bryant's ability to lead the revamped Lakers. The two stars showed no sign of continuing the controversy prior to the game, greeting each other before the tip. Shortly thereafter, Lewis began to shine. "This whole day, I was thinking about it," Lewis said of the much-hyped feud between Bryant and Allen. "I felt like Kobe was talking to us as a team. We were going to back Ray up. We're a team. We're going to fight for each other. It's not going to be a one-on-one fight." Lewis kicked off an impressive personal run with a jumper that gave Seattle the lead for good, 22-20, with 5:16 left. That basket was the start of Lewis' 12 straight points to finish the first, the last six on back-to-back 3-pointers in the closing seconds to give the Sonics a 32-23 lead. "I felt comfortable coming to the game," Lewis said. "I felt like the ball was going to go in every time I shot the ball. I didn't want to hesitate." Seattle pushed the lead to 19 in the second quarter and Los Angeles never got closer than eight thereafter. Lewis made the first and last of the Sonics' four straight 3-pointers late in the fourth that put away the game. Sonics coach Nate McMillan sees the maturity in his young forward. "He's slowing down and making good decisions when he has the ball," McMillan said. "When he has a small (guarding him), he's taking his time getting the good shot. He's moving the ball. When he has a big, he's taking him out and being aggressive and his stroke is going." Allen scored 26 points for Seattle, which improved to 10-1 at home by rebounding from its first loss this season at KeyArena - a 98-84 setback to Boston on Saturday. "There was a point where I think he (Bryant) was going at me a little bit at the top of the key and there wasn't much I could do about it," Allen said. "He was making a lot of tough shots tonight. I like Kobe as a person and I respect how he plays." Lewis and Allen spearheaded a 12-of-27 team effort from the arc. "They shot the ball so well," Lakers coach Rudy Tomjanovich said. "We tried three different methods of trying to play them and they had answers for everything. They shot the heck out of the ball. You have got to give them a lot of credit." Bryant nearly matched Lewis in the first half, scoring 21 of his 35 points before the break. He got little support from his teammates, however, as only two other Lakers scored as many as 12 points and Los Angeles shot just under 40 percent (32-of-81) from the floor. "It was tough to keep up with them defensively because they have so much firepower," Bryant said. "When we got an easy two, they got an easy three."
