Seattle SuperSonics Team Report – January 23

=== Seattle SuperSonics Team Report – January 23 ===

(Sports Network) – Brent Barry had 17 points, seven assists and six
rebounds to lead the Seattle SuperSonics past the Golden State Warriors,
103-87, on Thursday at Key Arena.

Antonio Daniels led the Sonics with 18 points off the bench. Ray Allen,
Rashard Lewis and Ronald Murray had 13 points apiece for Seattle, which has
won two of its last three.

The SuperSonics jumped out to a 7-0 lead and never looked back. Seattle later
pushed its lead to 26-10 on a Lewis basket and carried a 29-14 cushion into
the second quarter.

Vladimir Radmanovic hit a three-pointer midway through the second quarter to
extend the margin to 38-20. Golden State kept pace for some time but
eventually trailed by a 51-35 score at the break.

Seattle grabbed its largest lead of the game at 70-49 on a pair of free throws
by Jerome James with less than three minutes to go in the third quarter. The
Sonics then led, 74-55, after 36 minutes of play.

The fourth quarter was garbage time for most Seattle players, while the
Warriors tried to trim the lead. Ronald Murray’s field goal with five minutes
to go in the game made it 92-72 and Seattle cruised to the lopsided victory.

Barry scored in double figures for the first time in five games.

The Sonics are off until Saturday when they host the Clippers.
