The Supes overcame the absence of Rashard Lewis to beat Cleveland 105-97 last night at the Key.

Before the season, this match-up looked like it was going to be a real crapfest: the worst of the east vs. the worst of the west. Instead, it was the first place Sonics (!) taking on the first place Cavs (!!) in a battle of two of the best teams in the NBA.

Seattle was led by Ray Allen's 27 points while Vladidunk Radmanovic (whom I stupidly cut from my fantasy team) had 23 points (5-7 from behind the arc) and 11 rebounds off the bench.
