Kings 116 Sonics 99 with 3:30 left in the 4th Quarter
I can’t hear anything the women are saying other then they are excited that Mateen is in the game because one of them went to Michigan State. She said, “I think he is going to make it.” I am not sure what it is but ,…….. Have a good night I am done.

Kings 111 Sonics 89 with 6:17 left in the 4th Quarter
The Kings are 18 of their 24 in the second half.
I will try to give you an update on what the women are saying.
They are currently talking about Sheri’s awful child.

Kings 109 Sonics 89 with 6:38 left in the 4th Quarter
The two women to my left have been talking and gossiping all night about everyone they know and their relationships. They haven’t watched a minute of the game. I am jealous

Kings 105 Sonics 89 with 7:44 left in the 4th Quarter
There really is very little to say. The Sonics performance tonight is very disappointing and nothing they do in the final 7 minutes will change that.
Ray Allen has returned to action.
Up by 18 Rick Adelman can still find a way to whine about everything.
The Sonics have turned Bonzi Wells into Michael Jordan tonight.

Kings 103 Sonics 83 with 9:02 left in the 4th Quarter
Ray Allen just took a scary fall when he was hit going to the basket.
His left leg got bent completely back and underneath his body.
He has left the game after hitting two free throws.

Kings 84 Sonics 64 with 4:07 left in the 3rd Quarter
Once you let a team get in a rhythm it is almost impossible to break the rhythm. The Kings are rolling.
The 5 man sub move is cute, but these 5 are not starters for a reason. They aren’t that good.
This is so bad you just wish it would end. Where is the re-set button?

Kings 75 Sonics 61 with 7:23 left in the 3rd Quarter
The Kings have scored on 17 of their last 21 trips.
Bob Weiss just emptied the entire bench. 5 man substitution.
They should have been benched.

Kings 71 Sonics 61 with 9:18 in the 3rd Quarter
The defensive disaster continues. The lane is the free pass zone.

Kings 62 Sonics 57 at the half
In the last 6:53 of the half both teams only had three defensive stops.
Who ever decided to put out a little effort defensively will win this game.
This is the ultimate two teams playing in a tuxedo game.
There is more defense in an all-star game.

Sonics 56 Kings 53 with 1:33 left in the 2nd Quarter
Sonics defense is a beeping embarrassment !!!!!! They getting beat on basic cuts away from the ball. This is sad !!!!! The only explanation is that they are trying to match the defensive inadequacies of the Kings. The Kings are just as brutal.
Defense is not in the building .
The Sonics have scored on 10 of 11 possessions.
The Kings have scored 9 of the last 11 possessions.

Kings 43 Sonics 40 with 5:51 left in the 2nd Quarter
This is when Flip starts to bug me. He has dominated the 4 of the last 6 possessions. He has only scored on one of those and the other 3 were either turnovers or misses.
Sonics aren’t taking advantage of the Kings bench
Rashard Lewis just got his third foul at the 6:07 mark and heads the bench. Kings up three at this point

Sonics 35 Kings 35 with 8:59 left in the 2nd Quarter
Flip’s drive a moment ago was awesome power. Not many guys in the league have that move.
The next time Flip went for a drive he shot it over the glass. Not many guys in the league have that move.
Both teams are shooting over 60%.

Kings 31 Sonics 29 at the end of the 1st Quarter
The Kings uniforms look like something the University of Washington should be wearing.
Mike Bibby going right is a miss and going to his left is a make.
Now is the time the Sonics must take advantage of the Kings bench

Sonics 23 Kings 23 with 2:59 left in the 1st Quarter
Luke has scored or assisted on the Sonics last 13 points.
Sonics aren’t impeding any progress of the Kings cuts which allows the uninterrupted ball movement.
Lewis had another great steal. He had his career high last night.
Lewis has talked a lot about his team needing to play better defense and he is leading the way. That is impressive leadership.
Reggie Evans is playing hard on the boards.
Luke’s shot looks better then it has all year and most of last year.

Kings 13 Sonics 4 with 8:07 left in the 1st Quarter
Sonics opening offense is as bad as it was last night. Last night they allowed the first 14 buckets to be lay-ups. Tonight it is 4 of the first 5. Brad Miller has been left wide open.
Rotation is not a strength for Reggie Evans and Collison is going to help on the pick and roll and Reggie is not rotating.
It is interesting to see Lewis v. Peja. In my opinion Lewis has become a superior player to Peja. He has more versatility. He can go to the block. His defense is better . His shot is close to the same. That is a pretty tremendous change from where this match-up was a few years ago

1) Sonics effort
2) Sonics defensive rebounding v. Kings awful offensive rebounding
3) Take away the left hand of Peja and Bibby
4) Handle the spilts off the Brad Miller
5) Take advantage of the Kings Bench
