Sonics top Sixers

The Sonics got a strong performance from young Robert Swift yesterday in Utah, as the 3rd-year center went for 13-10 with 6 blocks in only 25 minutes of play, and Seattle beat the undefeated Sixers 88-86. Louis Williams continued his high-scoring for Philly by grabbing 21 points, his 4th time in the +20 range this summer. Interesting to see how he fits in the Philadelphia equation when the pre-season gets underway.

Aaron Miles also made an immediate impact for the Sonics, as the former KU star scored 14 points in his first game for Seattle this summer. It's also worth noting that Swift got to the line 9 times on 11 field goal attempts, an outstanding mark for a young big man.

Also of note:

-Mouhamed Sene sat out his second consecutive game with a bum ankle
-Paccelis Morlende sat out
-Yotam Halperin only played 3 minutes
-Noel Felix continued to play well, and led the Sonics with 27 minutes played. It's beginning to look as though he'll get serious consideration for a roster spot this fall.
