4/6/07 Box Score: Sonics 109 Lakers 112

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

Not the way you want to loose a game, but by no means a bad loss. The Sonics gutted this game out. Luke got hurt (left ankle), Rashard Lewis couldn't throw it in the Puget Sound, and yet the Sonics still led most of the game and almost won except for the 2nd half heroics of Kobe Bryant.

Chris Wilcox played like an absolute beast - 32 points and 18 rebounds. Damien Wilkins played well. Nick Collison worked his butt off. Earl Watson played well. A lot of really good contributions. If there is such a thing, it was a feel good loss. I'm not even going to dog them for not stopping Kobe. Nobody seems to be stopping Kobe lately. The Sonics had a huge rebounding advantage which kept them in this game in spite of a poorer shooting percentage than the Lakers. My only gripes would be Kobe's 24 free throws attempted and our 17 turn overs. That's crazy on the free throws. Kobe was the second leading scorer on his team with his free throws alone!

Once again, chalk one up for lottery balls!
