Denver - K. Martin 1
Considering the game went into OT, it's somewhat surprising the number of bad +/- for the Sonics. The -8 point OT has some impact on that, but plenty of negative numbers without including that. Luke (-16), Wilkins (-13) and Swift (-12) were the worst +/-. Mikki Moore was +7, Petro +4, and Flip was unexplainably +2. Greg Buckner was +22 somehow for the Nuggets, not the player I would have guessed as the +/- leader for this game.
Help Value (hv=Reb+Ast+Blk+Stl-TO)
Wilkins and Luke both were +12 to lead the team in HV. Vlade was a nice +9 for the night. Robert Swift (+8) and Nick Collison (+7) both had strong showings again.
Not having Rashard was tough, but the team almost pulled this off. Again, they gave up a 4th quarter lead. It's frustrating, but somewhat expected with a youth movement, and missing one of your key clutch players. It was nice to see Ray have a good shooting night, and somewhat surprising on a night he didn't have Rashard to draw away some of the attention. A crazy amount of personal fouls/free throws attempted in this game for the Nuggets.
