3/9/07 Box Score: Sonics 103 Celtics 118

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

It was the best of halves, it was the worst of halves. A tale of two halves.

Let's start with a Bob Hill quote:

"The second half was our worst defensive performance of the year, absolutely," Seattle coach Bob Hill said. "Jefferson just went to work. He made quick decisions and he was aggressive."

Jefferson was the second coming of the good Vin Baker. With two minutes to go in the first half, the Sonics led 63-47. That means the Celtics outscored the Sonics by 31 points over the final 26 minutes. A lot of that damage was in a 17-0 run in the last half of the third quarter. Jefferson alone scored 22 in the second half.

With the mismatch created by Rashard I think you need to go to him a lot more in the second half. He was shooting well (far better than Ray) and I don't think they took advantage of it. Part of that is Rashard's fault for not calling for the ball and forcing the issue, but a lot of that rides on the coach and the PG's. Once Nick and Chris were neutralized in the second half, you need to go to Rashard. On most nights I would be very happy with the combined 29 and 18 by Nick and Chris, but most of that came in the first half. The were limited to a combined 9 points in the second half.
