Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- The Northwest Division showdown between the Seattle SuperSonics and the Minnesota Timberwolves was a rollercoaster ride, with All-Star Ray Allen providing the thrills. Allen scored 18 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter as the SuperSonics recovered from an awful first half for a 98-88 victory over the Timberwolves. Seattle shot only 26 percent (12-of-46) in the first half, with Allen just 2-of-9. The SuperSonics trailed 44-35 at halftime. Latrell Sprewell's two free throws midway through the third quarter gave Minnesota its largest lead, 56-42. But Rashard Lewis and Vladimir Radmanovic combined for nine points over the final two-plus minutes of the quarter as Seattle moved within 69-64. "Rashard closed the third quarter out by getting to the free-throw line and being aggressive and setting them back on their heels," Allen said. "KG (Kevin Garnett) had to work very hard tonight, but he was tired. In the fourth quarter, they all got tired and they started losing us in transition, and we got a lot of open looks." Allen snapped a 77-77 tie with a 3-pointer at the 6:30 mark, giving Seattle its first lead. Garnett, who scored 31 points, tied it with a layup with 4:30 to go before Seattle pulled away with a 9-0 burst over the next two minutes. Radmanovic, who scored 13 of his 17 points in the second half, started the spree with his third 3-pointer of the quarter and Allen added a three-point play and 3-pointer to give the Sonics a 92-83 lead with 2:51 left. Radmanovic credited the sellout crowd of 17,072 for giving the team its fourth-quarter boost. "It was momentum," he said. "To play in this building with this playoff atmosphere, that's what basketball is about. All of those fans get up out of their seats and yell and scream after every basket. That's what every basketball player wants in this league." Allen made 10-of-22 shots, including 4-of-6 from the arc. "He had open looks all night long and those are shots that Ray normally knocks down," said McMillan. "He got in a rhythm and started to knock down some shots." The SuperSonics shot 73 percent (11-of-15) in the fourth quarter while surpassing last season's win total of 37. Seattle also extended its lead over Minnesota in the division to 14 games in the loss column. "This was a good effort by the guys in white," Seattle coach Nate McMillan. "They kept working. They kept with the game plan and we finally broke in the fourth quarter and were finally able to knock down some shots. It was a great game by the team in white tonight." The Timberwolves committed 19 turnovers, leading to 21 points for the Sonics. "We lost our momentum and we just couldn't generate anything," Timberwolves interim coach Kevin McHale said. "We had silly plays. We just killed ourselves. We competed hard for a while. We did not contain the perimeter at all and they drove at will. They got layups, then penalties and they started hitting some threes and the whole game turned. The last 14 minutes of the game was all them." Garnett believed the turnovers were the main reason for the loss. "You can't have 19 turnovers on the road to their seven and expect to win," said Garnett, who scored just four points in the final quarter. "Everybody is tired in the fourth quarter, and I'm no different."
