Brad Miller: "My new fighting technique is unstoppable"!

Led by seven (!) players in double figures, the Supersonics beat the Kings 122-118 to win the first round series 4-1.

Ray Allen, who became the first player in Sonics history to score 30 or more points in three consecutive playoff games, led the team with 30 points. Rashard Lewis, who had struggled early in the series, had 24.

After the game, Jerome James got a big ol' garbage bag out and started waving it around. Nobody knows why.

The Supes will play the winner of the Spurs/Nuggets series. Get your second round tickets here (when they go on sale).
