4/18/07 Box Score: Sonics 75 Mavs 106

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

It's the end of the season as we know it, and I feel fine...

Thanks to all the fans who helped out with the SOS&S Rally tonight!

Tonight was a clear example of the different trajectories of the two franchises - Dallas tied for the 6th best record in NBA history, and the Sonics had their worst season since 1985-86 where they also went 31-51.

This off season will be an interesting one, and it honestly started with the loss tonight. Loosing kept the Sonics in the #5 Lottery position, where we have an 11% chance at the top pick. Rashard Lewis will be opting out of the last two years of his contract and will be looking for a sizable payday. Rick Sund and Bob Hill are most likely both on their way out. The Danny Fortson era (if there is such a thing) has also most likely come to an end. Clay Bennett will have his first opportunity to really put his stamp on the team, and it will be interesting to see where he takes things while also being weighed down with the Arena issues.

A lackluster game by the Sonics, exactly what I expected. Dallas played their starters, and it was never even close. Mo Sene got a team high 7 boards and only 1 foul in his 21 minutes (he also went 0-5 from the field).
