That sound you heard was the Sonics hitting the bottom of the well. In the second half, they managed just 31 points and shot 38.9 percent and appeared to give less than a 100 percent effort. Here's the Associated Press game story.
Coach P.J. Carlesimo hinted he may make a change in the starting lineup after Sunday's game in Toronto. Center Johan Petro could lose his job to Nick Collison or Francisco Elson. Petro finished with just six points on 3-for-7 shooting and five rebounds while Samuel Dalembert had 22 points and 13 rebounds.
The Sonics can't afford off nights from anyone and Earl Watson scored just six points and no reserve had more than Nick Collison's eight.
Kevin Durant, who scored 14 points, attempted just 11 shots. It was his fewest since Dec. 29.
Jeff Green had 12 points, but needed 15 shots.
Luke Ridnour continues to slide. He was scoreless in 19 minutes.
