Sonics nix Nets, 92-79

It's a good time to be a Sonics fan.

The Supes clobbered the Nets tonight, 92-79, at the Key. Seattle blew the doors off the place right from the start, leading 21-8 after the first quarter, and were up by 21 at the half.

Danny Fortson had a huge game for the Sonics, coming off the bench for 20 points and 8 rebounds.

Despite poor shooting (.395 from the field), and a third quarter comeback by the Nets, Seattle hung on to improve their NBA-best record to 12-2 and 6-0 at home (and 1-0 when dressing like the Golden State Warriors).

The Sonics play the depleted Pacers at home on Sunday.
