2/23/07 Box Score: Sonics 97 Hornets 98

The unofficial box score from tonight's game and PopcornMachine's GameFlow.

A dubious ending to a game the Sonics could have/should have won. The last shot was a fiasco. But the game honestly was lost there. It was lost on rebound after rebound after offensive rebound after offensive rebound after rebound. Yeah, you get the idea. The BuzzKill made 2 fewer baskets on 24 more attempts, and won the game at the FT line.

I must say I loved Rashard's 3 pointer with 30 seconds to go. That was clutch shooting. Ray played really well, but I would have to be tempted to go back to him and his mismatch to close the game after he hit that big 3.

Props to Earl Watson for an excellent game. 8 of 9 shooting and a tough assignment of chasing Chris Paul around all night.

Again, I am disappointed to not see Gelabale get any minutes. We might have to start a Free Gelly campaign.
