Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- One of the NBA's top 3-point shooting teams, the Seattle SuperSonics found their stroke from the arc just in time. Rashard Lewis and Vladimir Radmanovic each hit clutch 3-pointers in the final three minutes as the SuperSonics snapped a season-high three-game losing streak with a 90-80 victory over the New York Knicks. Seattle, which entered third in the league in 3-point shooting at 37.7 percent, had made just 5-of-21 from the arc when Stephon Marbury hit a pair of free throws to give New York a 76-75 lead with 3:32 left. But Lewis, who scored 23 points, nailed a 3-pointer over Tim Thomas one minute later to give the Sonics the lead for good, igniting a 13-1 run. The run was a result of an outstanding defensive showing by Seattle, which held New York to 21 percent (4-of-21) shooting in the fourth quarter and was physical throughout most of the second half. "I thought tonight in the second half, we got defense in the game and were able to get some stops and go down and score the ball," said Sonics coach Nate McMillan, whose team allowed less than 85 points for the fifth time this season. "It starts on the defensive end of the floor." "It was good to get this win," Lewis added. "We have been on a three-game losing streak so we were trying to do anything to get on the right track." Kurt Thomas and Jamal Crawford each missed jumpers around a free throw by rookie Nick Collison before Radmanovic drained his only 3-pointer of the game with 1:24 to go, pushing Seattle's lead to 82-76. During the Sonics' skid, Radmanovic - who hits nearly 40 percent from the arc - made just 2-of-16 3-pointers. He missed his first three attempts before hitting the late 3-pointer from the left side. "You have to shoot it," Radmanovic said. "When you get wide open, I don't care how many I make before that, I'm just going to get my shot and try to make them. I try not to think about what I was doing before because it is going to mess up your rhythm." After Malik Rose made 1-of-2 from the line, Collison all but sealed the victory with a three-point play that made it 85-77 with just over a minute to play. The Knicks shot just 31 percent (24-of-77) overall. They made just one basket - a meaningless 3-pointer by Tim Thomas with 35 seconds on the clock - in the final four minutes. Marbury and Tim Thomas scored 20 points apiece for New York, which had its season-high seven-game home winnning streak snapped and lost at home to Seattle for the first time in seven tries. "We just didn't execute like we have been at home," Marbury said. "For whatever reason, we got out of what we normally do." After taking a 50-45 lead at the break, New York was held to just 30 points in the second half and handed its first home loss since February 9. "We let this one slip away," Knicks swingman Penny Hardaway said. "We have to close the door on them when we get an opportunity to. When you let good teams hang around and give them an opportunity to win that it what they do." Ray Allen added 19 points on 7-of-20 shooting and Antonio Daniels chipped in 11 for Seattle, which improved to 21-8 on the road. Allen hit a 10-foot jumper with 4:44 remaining in the fourth, capping a 15-6 run that gave the Sonics a 75-71 advantage.
