12/23/06 Box Score: Sonics 110 Raptors 97

The unofficial box score from tonight's game and PopcornMachine's GameFlow.
A great way to start off the Christmas weekend for Sonics fans. Very nice to have Ray back in the line up. Especially nice that he seems to have recaptured that silky smooth shot that has been missing all season. An excellent finish to the game.

Watson seemed a bit slow tonight, perhaps that is just TJ Ford, but it looked like more than that to me. He was consistently a step behind, letting his man get good angles to the basket for the drive. When he would try to compensate, he would over play and open up other lanes.

It was also nice to see Danny Fortson back on the floor. He is a difference maker, there is no question about it. The only question is will it be a positive difference? Tonight it was. He gave a good effort, and hopefully he can build from there and be part of the solution in the middle for the Sonics for the rest of the season. The Sonics had a sizable rebounding advantage, and Danny was a key part in that advantage. Petro only managed 2 rebounds in 22 minutes, which is a bit of a concern. Too frequently Petro disappears on the glass. That is something I hope the coaches really get after him on, and help him with.

Plus/Minus
Some really nice +/- for the Sonics. Chris Wilcox led all players at +19. Luke Ridnour was +18, Danny Fortson +13, Ray Allen +11 and Earl Watson +10. A further indicator of Johan Petro's poor night is that he was -9.

Help Value (hv=Reb+Ast+Blk+Stl-TO)
Mickael Galebale led the Sonics for the first time in his short NBA career at +12. There were 5 other Sonics players at +7.
