CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Former Gonzaga great Adam Morrison struggled in his first NBA start against the Seattle SuperSonics.
Morrison was just 3-of-12 from the field, and missed all three of his shots in the decisive third quarter, including a layup on a fast break. He also managed only one rebound, never got to the free-throw line, and failed to score in double figures for the first time.
Ray Allen scored 26 points tonight and Rashard Lewis added 19 of his 21 in the second half as the SuperSonics beat Charlotte, 99-to-85. Lewis, who was 0-for-2 from the field in the first half, scored 11 points in the third quarter, when the Sonics outscored the Bobcats 35-to-19.
Chris Wilcox added 12 points and 13 rebounds for Seattle, which overcame 18 turnovers to win on the road for the first time in four tries.
