The Sonics put on their worst display of the season in the first game of a five-game road trip that has gotten ugly almost before it has started. While it wasn't the worst game in Orlando in team history (you'll recall the game of two years ago when 3 or 4 guys got food poisoning and only 7 or 8 players dressed), it was plenty bad enough. To wit:
- Kevin Durant: As many turnovers (4) as field goals made
- 3 Point Guards: Combined 3 of 19 from the field (!)
- Team: 2 of 10 from 3-point range
- Kurt Thomas: 4 fouls, 4 points
I could go on, but there's no point. Even Magic fans aren't celebrating this one: "It's not that we played well enough to win this game, but rather that Seattle played horridly enough to lose it." (courtesy of Third Quarter Collapse's Ben Q Rock).
