(Sports Network) – The struggling Utah Jazz fell in overtime to the Seattle
SuperSonics, 129-119, on Wednesday at KeyArena.

dunk and 118-115 Sonics advantage. Ray Allen connected from long range with
2:14 to go and Antonio Daniels followed with a three of his own to make it

scored 20 or more points nine times this season.
The Jazz are off until Saturday when they host the Dallas Mavericks. Last
season, the teams split four contests.
