Should be a fun game. The Sonics seem to be back into a groove, and the Suns always love to run with us. Read Kevin Pelton's Insider Preview, it's worth your time.
For the first time since early December, the Seattle SuperSonics have won three straight games. All three wins have come in convincing fashion - by a combined 69 points - albeit against lottery-bound competition. The Sonics will get a more difficult challenge tonight against the Suns, who won at KeyArena on March 14, putting up 129 points in a shootout. In Phoenix in January, the teams combined for 301 points in double-overtime, the highest scoring game in the NBA this season. Like most shootouts, this game will likely be won by the team that first plays defense.
