Parkers effort no enough.
Point guards dont get the job done.

I predict that Wilcox will make good on his thug photo (see above), go back to his car, get his gun and shoot everybody (to steal a bit from White Men Can't Jump).

The Sonics are the best rebounding team in the league? Is it because they miss so many shots? Or are they %-wise really the best rebounders?

Yeah, up until those last two possessions that Ford was involved he played very well especially on the defensive end. Then he decided to force those two lay-ups instead of being patient and trying to run something on offense.

Ah well, a better effort from him though.

one of those werent bad ideas, just didnt go in. You can teall his confidence is down now. When he left the court, he was looking to the floor. Lets hope he gets a couple of good baskets in the second.

Ford played a very good game but just couldnt finish the easy ones. I'll take him taking it 1 on 1 in the open court vs ridnour over our halfcourt offence any day. Hes getting wide open layup attempts from right infront of the basket but is trying to draw the foul more than just shooting it straight and finishing. I think he'll have a big second half.

Nice to see Kapono step behind the line for once.

Yeah, Jose was a liability on defense during the first half, but who wasn't? Ford definitely helped defensively with a couple steals and a couple forced turnovers. If he can stay patient and not force things as much on offense then I see a very productive 2nd half for T.J..
