Get your game thread here! We've got Kobe vs. Ray... Read Kevin Pelton's Insider Preview.
Since returning to the starting five, Brown has played his best basketball, averaging 12.2 points and 8.0 rebounds on 40-for-63 shooting from the field (63.5%). The Lakers have been a better defensive team this season with Brown on the court, so having him contribute on offense is a huge bonus.
The matchup between Petro/Swift and Brown should be interesting. There's no question that at this point I wouldn't trade either for Brown.
It also looks like Rashard Lewis will again not be playing for the Sonics. Let's hope Ray Allen finds his shot this evening!
