SORRY WE JUST LOST THE 1ST QUARTER BLOGS. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET THEM BACK SORRY
Place your questions and thoughts in the comments areas and I will try to get to them and give you my thoughts.
2nd Half Stats
Offensive Efficiency: 114
Defensive Efficiency: 132 (an amazing 140 in the 2nd quarter)
Offensive Rebounding%: 22% (not acceptable)
Defensive Rebounding%: 55%
Effective Field Goal%: 61% (70+% in the second quarter)
Effective Def FG%: 57% (That is shockingly poor)
Offensive Turnover%: 22 % (this is Game 3 all over again
KINGS 68 SONICS 56 at the Halfime.
68 points in a half is a joke, the Kings aren't this good. They look great but that is largely because the Sonics are showing no resistance.
Second chance points are 17-2
Kenny Thomas is dominating Seattle.
The Sonics look like they have never played defense before.
Terrible ends of quarters will cost Seattle this game.
KINGS 60 SONICS 52 with 1:04 left in the half
Vlady Radmanovic really looks like he is out of rhythm. He missed a ton of practice
Vlady is so bad on the boards right now it is almost impossible to have him on the floor. Then back to back turnovers by Allen and Lewis.
The bonehead plays to end each quarter are enough to cost you a game.
The end of the 1st Quarter and now allowing offenisive rebound on the back end of a free throw.
The game has gone small with Collison and Songalia playing center
The turnovers are killing the Sonics.
KINGS 55 SONICS 48 with 2:55 left in the 2nd Quarter.
No one is playing any defense.
Seattle has scored on 11 of 13 possessions.
Then they committed back to back turnovers.
They can't make mistakes they built to big a hole. If they let down in the final 2:58 left they will never have a chance in this game.
KINGS 49 SONICS 44 with 4:34 left in the 2nd Quarter
A 17-2 run
When Vlady re-entered Nate said to him, you have to rebound, he just got beat again on the defensive boards.
Jerome is scoring ont he pick and roll instead of post up like he did in Game 1. This is much better for the Sonics.
I like having Cutino Mobley on the other team.
KINGS 43 SONICS 34 with 7:13 left in the 2nd Quarter
Miller is killing Jerome
The Sonics scored on 8 of their first 14 possessions and once they went to the bench they scored on just 3 of their next 15.
They have gone to the starters plus Vlady for Reggie and have scored on 5 straight possessions.
