1/23/08 Box Score: Sonics 107 Rockets 109

12th Supersonics loss in a row, and this one was a heart breaker. Durant's shot was on line, just an inch too long. Blown 12 point 4th quarter lead really hurts. Dang we need to close these games out!

The difference in the game is that Houston had 2 fewer turnovers and 3 more offensive rebounds. The game was that close. That and the Rockets were smoking from the 3 point line.

Kevin Durant had a solid offensive game going 12 for 23 and 25 points. Wally Szczerbiak had 22 points off the bench. Nick Collison couldn't buy a bucket (1-7) but did rebound well with 14 to lead the Sonics.


The unofficial box score from tonight's game.
