Allen nets 32 as Sonics edge T-Wolves in OT

SEATTLE (AP) -- Struggling with his shot all night, Ray Allen scored 11 of his 32 points in overtime, and the Seattle SuperSonics beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 107-102 on Saturday.

Allen was 7-for-24 from the field in regulation, but went 3-for-4 in overtime, including two 3-pointers, and scored all but two Seattle's point in the extra five minutes.

Rashard Lewis added 19 points for Seattle, which went 33-for-36 from the free throw line.

Kevin Garnett led the Timberwolves with 23 points.

Tied at 94 after regulation, Wally Szczerbiak scored to open the extra session, but Allen answered with a jumper and Seattle's third 3-pointer of the night with 3:06 left.

Marko Jaric scored for Minnesota, but Allen made a free throw and his second 3-pointer of overtime put Seattle up for good at 103-98 with 1:30 left.

Minnesota got within 103-100 on two free throws by Garnett, but he missed a runner in the lane with under a minute remaining, and Michael Olowokandi missed a short jumper with 22 seconds left.

Luke Ridnour and Allen made four free throws in the final 20 seconds for Seattle.

Ridnour and Nick Collison each added 10 points for Seattle, while Jaric had 20 for Minnesota.

It was the first win for Seattle coach Bob Weiss. First-year Minnesota coach Dwane Casey made his first return trip to Seattle, where he was an assistant for 11 years. Casey won his opener on Wednesday night against Portland, and his former head coach in Seattle, Nate McMillan.
