Seattle SuperSonics Team Report – November 24

=== Seattle SuperSonics Team Report – November 24 ===

(Sports Network) – Vladimir Radmanovic went 4-of-8 from three- point
territory and finished with a game-high 25 points, as the Seattle SuperSonics
held on to beat the Washington Wizards, 88-85, at KeyArena on Sunday.

Radmanovic drained some key threes down the stretch for Seattle, which snapped
a two-game slide to win for just the second time in five games. Rashard Lewis
added 24 points, and Ronald Murray scored 21 in the win.

Seattle carried a 60-52 lead into the fourth quarter.

The Wizards opened the final stanza on an 11-2 run, however, and pulled ahead
on Juan Dixon’s three at 9:30. It was their first lead since the opening
quarter, but it didn’t last.

Seattle came right back and took the lead at the other end on Murray’s bucket.
Back-and-forth scoring ensued until the Wizards used an 8-2 spurt later in the
frame to take a 76-71 advantage.

Washington looked to extend its lead, but Gilbert Arenas was injured on a spin
move in the lane, and Seattle turned a steal on the play into a bucket at the
other end, pulling within 76-73 with 4:44 to play.

That sparked a 13-4 burst that put the Sonics up for good. Radmanovic’s three
at 1:57 capped the flurry and gave Seattle an 84-80 edge. It was free throws
from there on out for the Sonics, who drained 4-of-6 from the line down the
stretch to ice the win.

Brent Barry scored 14 points for Seattle, which was 10-of-22 from three-point

The Sonics host the New Jersey Nets on Tuesday in the final contest of a
four-game homestand.
