Sonics edge Raptors, 88-87
SEATTLE(AP) -- Antonio Daniels' driving 8-foot shot with 7.2 seconds left gave the Seattle SuperSonics an 88-87 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Friday night.
Vince Carter of the Raptors missed a driving reverse layup as time expired.
The Sonics (5-1) won their fifth consecutive game after a 30-point, season-opening road loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
Ray Allen, who fouled out with 5:20 to go and the Sonics trailing 76-75, led his team with 29 points, including five 3-pointers.

Did you see Howard and his Cuban-esque moment at the end of the game; jumpin up/down like a kid, hugging players? And to think he was trying to sell the team this past summer, couldn't find a buyer for this money losing franchise. Have faith Howie!
And Nate must have LOVED watching the players do a huddle AFTER the game, digging the chemistry in deep. This is a tender, fragile group but if they stay together, don't mess with the chemistry... could be a nice spring.
What happens when Ron Murray is ready to play?
And Nate must have LOVED watching the players do a huddle AFTER the game, digging the chemistry in deep.They were dancing around like the Storm did after they won the Championship. And we're six games into the season... Just hope they don't use up all their energy by celebrating. Hehe.
I'm going to Sunday's game, and they had better win.
What will happen when Flip returns? Good question. Murray was playing the point a lot during the preseason, so I imagine he'll be taking minutes from Daniels while challenging Frodo for the starting job. Rad-man hasn't been lighting it up lately, so he could slip into the three spot (with Rashard at PF) when they go with a three-guard line-up.
