Rashard Lewis blocks the hell out of it.

Well, they didn't cover my spread, but the Sonics still managed to beat Indiana, 103-95, last night at the Key.

Seattle won despite another gutsy effort by the short-handed Pacers, who lost three starters in the aftermath of "Pummel-Gate". Pacers guard James Jones, making like (a not-hideously-ugly) Reggie Miller, scored a career-high 27 points, including six three-pointers.

Rashard Lewis came back from a shoulder injury three days ago to lead the team with 22 points and four blocks. 'Shard was one of six Sonics who scored in double-digits.

Seattle improved their NBA-best record to 13-2 and a perfect 7-0 at home. This is the Sonics' best start since '93-94. If this team turns out to be half as good as that one, we're in for one hell of a ride.
