MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Ricky Davis scored 24 points and Mark Blount added 18 to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves past the sleepy Seattle SuperSonics 101-82 on Friday night.

Kevin Garnett never got going. He barely extended his double-digit scoring streak to 349 games, reaching 10 points on 4-for-15 shooting with a short turnaround midway through the fourth quarter. Mark Madsen subbed for him the next time the clock stopped.

Davis picked up the slack, though, and Marko Jaric chipped in 13 points on 5-for-7 shooting off the bench to give Minnesota its third win in four games.

Ray Allen returned for Seattle after missing Thursday night’s game following the birth of his son to his fiancee, but neither he nor the rest of his teammates really showed up. The Sonics shot a season-low 35.2 percent from the field and trailed by as many as 28 points with less than 10 minutes left. Allen finished with 14 points.
