The unofficial box score from tonight's game and PopcornMachine's GameFlow.
Oh the sweet taste of victory, how we love thee! At half time I would have told you I had doubts about the ability to come back in this game, by the beginning of the 4th I was sincerely impressed in the turn around, but was worried we might not be able to carry it through the 4th. I was proven wrong at all points. Great win!
4 Sonics players with 20+ points, excellent scoring balance. The simple numbers say the Sonics won this game because A) they rebounded better than the Warriors and B) they shot more FT's. Four players with at least 8 rebounds, and Damien Wilkins led the Sonics with 9 boards. Some HUGE plays down the stretch by Luke Ridnour, if I had to pick a player of the game I'd give it to him.
