Davis 3-pointer Lifts Warriors Past Sonics
Golden State 110, Seattle 107 (OT)
SEATTLE, Dec. 13 (Ticker) -- Baron Davis missed a game-winning layup in regulation, so he stepped a long way back to win it in overtime.
Davis connected on a 3-pointer with four-tenths of a second left to help the Golden State Warriors post a 110-107 overtime triumph over the Seattle SuperSonics.
Davis, who collected 21 points and 13 assists, redeemed himself in the extra session when he took a long inbounds pass from Mike Dunleavy Jr., took two dribbles and swished the 3-pointer over the outstretched arms of defender Ronald Murray.
Ray Allen, who scored a season-best 35 points thanks to 7-of-10 shooting from the arc, missed a desperation runner from 3-point range as time expired for the SuperSonics, who lost their second straight home contest.
Derek Fisher scored a season-high 26 points for the Warriors, who halted a season-high two-game slide and won their 13th game of the season. In 2004-05, Golden State did not reach the 13-win plateau until February 4.
