Ray Allen scored a season-high 37 points, Rashard Lewis had 21 and Vladimir Radmanovic added 20, leading the Seattle SuperSonics to their seventh straight victory, 103-95, over the 76ers last night in Philadelphia.
The Sonics are off to their best start since opening 10-0 in 1993. They haven't lost since dropping their opener to the Los Angeles Clippers by 30 after going 2-6 in exhibition games.
"Everybody stepped up and played their part," Allen said. "We had it working on all cylinders."
Allen Iverson scored 26 and Kyle Korver had 14 for the Sixers, who had won three in a row.
Seattle, which came in with an NBA-best 58 three-pointers, shot 18 of 39 from beyond the arc, tying a team record for threes. Allen finished 12 of 24 from the field, including 7 of 12 on three-pointers. Radmanovic went 6 of 11 on threes.
"They have way too much firepower from the three-point line," 76ers Coach Jim O'Brien said. "They generally have four great shooters at once and they use the pick-and-roll well."
Antonio Daniels had 19 points as a reserve for Seattle, which got 41 points from its reserves.
* JAZZ 107, BOBCATS 105: Raja Bell made a three-pointer with 18 seconds left and hit two clutch free throws to lead visiting Utah.
The Jazz, off to a 6-1 start, trailed by 22 and needed a furious comeback to get back into the game.
Carlos Boozer led Utah with 34 points and 13 rebounds. Bell scored 21, Andrei Kirilenko had 13, and Jarron Collins and Gordan Giricek each added 11.
Keith Bogans led Charlotte with a career-high 28 points.
* TIMBERWOLVES 108, HEAT 97: Dwyane Wade's return was overshadowed by the MVP.
Kevin Garnett came close to another triple-double, finishing with 25 points, 21 rebounds and 8 assists for host Minnesota.
Wade, after missing the last two games with a sprained left ankle, scored 20 of his 25 points in the first half for the Heat. Shaquille O'Neal added 20 points and 15 rebounds.
Garnett stole the show, though -- surpassing 14,000 career points and guiding the Timberwolves' best all-around effort of the season.
* HAWKS 88, ROCKETS 84: Antoine Walker had 20 points and 10 rebounds, and host Atlanta rallied from an 11-point deficit in the final 6:11 to beat Houston.
* SPURS 99, KNICKS 81: Tim Duncan had 17 points and 10 rebounds, and began a key third-quarter burst that helped host San Antonio to victory. Tony Parker added 18 points and a season-high nine assists for the Spurs (6-1).
* SUNS 107, MAVERICKS 101: In his return to Dallas, Steve Nash scored 17 points and had a season-best 18 assists, many setting up Amare Stoudamire's 34 points. Nash spent six seasons in Dallas before signing a six-year deal worth at least $60 million with Phoenix in July.
* CLIPPERS 101, RAPTORS 89: Marko Jaric had 23 points, eight assists and 7 rebounds to lead host Los Angeles to victory. Corey Maggette added 22 points, Elton Brand had 19 and all five Los Angeles starters scored in double figures.
* KINGS 113, BULLS 106: Peja Stojakovic scored 29 points, Mike Bibby added 27 and host Sacramento kept Chicago winless at 0-5.
