Game Day: Warriors

The Sonics take on another team in a bit of a slide this afternoon: The Warriors. G-State has dropped five in a row in the New Year, pulling them down out of the playoff race into 10th place (welcome to the club, fellas).

Anyway, the Sonics stand a chance for a victory this afternoon, but I'm not laying any money on it.

With 5 minutes left in the 1Q, it's Mike Dunleavy 9 - Sonics 9. That can't be good.

I just noticed the score update on Yahoo, GS 20, Sea 9....and I realized that sometimes I'm pretty glad I don't have cable and can't watch hardly any of these games....I may become suicidal with 30 odd straight days of rain and now the sonics getting blown out by Golden State....GOLDEN STATE!!?!

Aargh

After that lousy start, the Sonics have started to come back, no thanks to Radmanovic.

I should have known that after scoring in double figures for 3 consecutive games, Radman was due to go <10 in 3 straight. It only makes sense.

Nuss said...

It's the 4Q, and Mikael Pietrus is outscoring Rashard Lewis.

No more need besaid.

Nuss said...

On a brighter note, how 'bout that Robert Swift! 12 pts, 7 boards, 2 blocks in 21 minutes. I can't wait until he goes for 4 points and 3 boards in the next game!

Hooray!!! It sounds like the Vlade experiment may be over. Hill alluded (in postgame) to Nick and Robert moving into the starting lineup for the Raptors game.

Big Rob is looking like he can play. According to Calabro he's ridiculously excited about playing right now. Looks like it, from how much he tries to dunk on people. Sund does not draft badly it would seem. If we get a lottery pick I wanna see Sheldon Williams in the green and gold. A Swift-Petro-Collison-Williams front line might actually be able to hold the paint. Then we'd just need a third guard to replace Flip. Jason Terry anyone?

Or anyone to replace flip... I'd rather Ehlo playing for us right now than flip

Ehlo is a better Sonics commentator than he was a Sonics player... 'nuf said.

Jason Terry is not a third guard, but rather a starting point guard. If Terry is signed by Seattle Supersonics GM Rick Sund during this upcoming off-season, then Luke Ridnour would be regulated to the bench.

As it is, though, Terry isn't a top-notch defensive player; I still think that the 'sonics should attempt to acquire point guard Earl Watson.

Good Times,
AK1984

P.S.: Craig Ehlo is, undeniably, an awful announcer.

Nate said...

Does anyone have an explanation for why the Sonics are getting outrebounded on a regular basis? I felt like last year our rebounding made up for some of our bad D and now we get out rebounded by the Clippers and the Warriors. Maybe I should just stop thinking about last year. Its a cruel form of self torture.

QDaily said...

AK, Can I have some of that crack you've been smoking, because its pretty obvious that it is some good stuff. Why on Earth would the Atlanta Hawks give up Al Harrington for a shitload for second round draft picks and nobodies? Also, Denver would get Ron Artest for (basically) Vashon and Earl Watson? I love that you piled on, like, 20 draft picks to make the math work out...

Nice try.

I think when AK types out the names of second round picks, it gives him a woody.

AK1984 said...

We are getting out-rebounded because Bob Hill doesn't focus on hitting the glass, but rather getting back on defense and offense within the transition game. All in all, it is an unproductive way to play basketball.

Nuss said...

Anonymous, you've got to get a name. Your take on AK and the 2nd round picks made my sides split. Sorry, AK, but I'm sure even you had to laugh a little at his joke.

qdaily said...

AK,

For all of the crap I gave you about the trade, I have to give you props on Ehlo. He sucks harder than a Dyson...

-Q

AK1984 said...

Thanks Q.

As it was, though, I figured that someone had to say it. Hell, I miss Marques Johnson.

Lance Uppercut said...

If you miss Marques, just watch a college hoops game on Fox Sports Northwest. He's been defiling the cablewaves (if there is such a thing) for a while now with his asinine made up word gig and infinate UCLA homering.
