The unofficial box score from tonight's game and PopcornMachine's GameFlow.
An excellent win for the Sonics tonight. Always able to answer anything the Clippers tried to get going. Rashard Lewis played a fantastic game, going for 35 points and 13 boards, and covering for a sub-par game by Ray Allen. In spite of Allen's 23 points there was a moment I began to worry that Ray might shoot us out of this game. Wisely he allowed things to continue to flow to Rashard and didn't disrupt the momentum in the 3rd quarter.
Nick Collison played very well, grabbing 13 boards and providing some very solid defense. Earl Watson also played better than his stats would indicate. And how about Andreas Glyniadakis laying the wood to Chris Kamen in his first extended run in the NBA
The Sonics were able to keep both Sam Cassell and Elton Brand from going off, and were able to control the flow of this game. The Sonics also took care of the ball (9 TO's), and out rebounded one of the better rebounding teams in the NBA. The 4 more offensive rebounds and 2 fewer turnovers by the Sonics allowed them to take 6 more shots from the floor than the Clippers, which helped make up the difference in FT's attempted.
