On This Day in Sonics Hitory: December 18, 1990 - Baby, It's Cold Outside


A massive Seattle snow storm delayed the Sonics game against the Orlando Magic by over an hour. Head coach K.C. Jones and Dale Ellis couldn't get to the game until halfway through the second quarter. Michael Cage and Dave Corzine walked from their Queen Anne homes to the Coliseum. There were only 1,568 fans in attendance. Despite the freezing temperatures outside, the Sonics were able to get hot inside and defeat the Magic 122-105 behind 33 points from Derrick McKey and a double-double from Shawn Kemp, who had 20 points and 11 rebounds.
