The unofficial box score from tonight's game and PopcornMachine's GameFlow.
Ray Allen....en fuego! That is the Basketball Jesus we have all loved, what a performance! Only one player in Sonics history has scored more in a single game (58 by Freddie Brown). Ray's 54 points is a career high for him.
Earl Watson finished with 16 assists, but with Ray Allen shooting that well it is almost hard to not get assists.
Nick Collison continued to play like a beast, going for 25 points and 13 boards, which was needed to neutralize Carlos Boozer's big game.
The key stat in this game was free throws. The Sonics took 4 more, but made 9 more.
A lot of nice contributions. Andre Brown played very well in his limited minutes, coming up with a key (and sweet!!!) block of Deron William in OT. Brown basically came out of nowhere and erased William's shot.
Unfortunately Petro didn't have a good night, though Fred Flintstone...err...Mehmet Okur is a tough matchup.

Somewhat surprising, your +/- leader for the Sonics tonight was none other than our newest player, Andre Brown (+14). He was closely followed by both Earl Watson and Nick Collison at +13. Andre Kirilenko was -20 which is also a bit surprising.
Help Value (hv=Reb+Ast+Blk+Stl-TO)
Earl Watson's +22 is a very strong number. Now if he can just stop bricking shots... Nick Collison was +16 and Ray Allen was +14.
