Regardless of Swift's condition, the Sonics played quite well last night, especially the non-Allen and -Lewis part of the team, which has been frustrating to say the least in October. Among the highlights:
- Chris Wilcox gets 11 / 6 in 19 minutes, with only 1 turnover.
- Johan Petro hits 16 points, best of the exhibition season for him.
- Luke Ridnour posts another solid outing.
- Nick Collison again looked great, scoring 19 points to go with 12 boards.
- The Omen grabbed 7 rebounds and scored 18 points.
- The Warriors only hit 2 of 11 3-pointers, the best defensive performance of the exhibition season for Seattle.
I'm feeling a little better about the Sonics' chances today than I was a few days ago, which isn't saying much considering I expected them win about 37 games this season. We'll be back with our Predictions for the 2006-07 season in the next few days, so feel free to clip 'n save and throw those picks in our faces this spring.
