Imagine this...you're boss kicks you out of work (locking the doors) with 20ish seconds left on the game tonight. You run to your truck, fire it up (the truck that is for you Hempfest attenders...) and with 10.1 seconds to go, the Sonics up by one point your NBA feed dies. Yep. That was my night.
Thankfully, the Sonics won!
A really good effort by a number of players tonight. After basically being held in check the first half of the game, Ray Allen really poured it on in the second half. Chris Wilcox and Nick Collison both with double doubles. Mickael Gelabale! Have I mentioned I REEEEALLY like his game? He was so key down the stretch, coming up big on play after play - 17 points, 8 rebounds, a silent assassin. I loved Earl's alley-oop to him for the dunk.
Statistically speaking, the Sonics won this game on offensive rebounds and taking care of the ball. We managed to take 9 more shots by getting 3 more O-boards and having 7 fewer TO's.
Luke and Earl continued with poor shooting going a combined 5 for 17 from the floor. Luke was 2-4 on 3pt. shots at least.
In the related/unrelated, Mo Sene was officially called back up from the NBDL today for those who didn't catch the game (he's listed as an DNP-CD)
