1/2/07 Box Score: Sonics 88 Mavs 112

The unofficial box score from tonight's game and PopcornMachine's GameFlow.
The Sonics looked good for a quarter tonight. Unfortunately Dallas looked great the other three quarters. Somebody needs to introduce this team to the basketball concept called REBOUNDING. I think a junior high basketball team's front court could have gotten the same number of rebounds as the Sonics in the second half. The Sonics were out rebounded by 28, which is only 2 fewer than their TOTAL rebounds. How Hill managed to A) not get ejected or B) strangle someone for not rebounding amazes me. I don't know what his blood pressure normally is, but I'd guess right now it is off the charts after that lame second half effort. The game was tied at half time, and we were only down 6 entering the 4th quarter.

But give credit to the Mavs, they are an impressive team. Nowitzki was his uber efficient self tonight shredding the Sonics for 31 points on 10 of 18 shooting. Ray Allen actually had a solid shooting game as well getting 27 points on 9 of 18 shooting.
