10/20/07 Preseason: Sonics 94 Rockets 117

The unofficial box score from tonight's game.

In spite of it being a preseason game, tonight was a good indicator why many think the Rockets will contend for the Western Conference title this year (assuming health of course). The Sonics youth was simply over matched by the experience Rockets.

"We're not ready to play a team this good right now. They're very, very difficult for us to play," said Sonics coach P.J. Carlesimo.

At least our coach is honest. Kevin Durant led the Sonics with 25 points on 9 of 20 shooting. Delonte West had a very efficient night with 22 points on 8 of 12 shooting.

The Rockets shot 11 of 27 from 3 point range (Sonics were 1 for 7) which will be something to watch. I suspect as the defense begins to take shape, this number will begin to trend downward. Hard to gauge a lot from a preseason game like this, but once things are for real it'll be something to watch.

Anyone else think the Spurs will regret not holding onto Luis Scola?
