Seattle to visit Magic Friday night
The Sonics fired new coach Bob Weiss earlier this season, but Bob Hill hasn't fared much better. The Sonics were involved in a 4 team trade Thursday, acquiring Earl Watson and Bryon Russell while losing Reggie Evans and Vitaly Potapenko. Ray Allen (24.8 ppg), and Rashard Lewis (21.2 ppg) are having nice years. Luke Ridnour (11.7 ppg) also contributes. The Sonics do not play good defense, as evidenced by the fact they have given up 106.7 ppg this season. But they also average 101.6 ppg, compared to the Magic's 92.8 ppg.
We should have a nice crowd at TDW tonight, as a lot of tix have been sold since the Magic acquired Darko and Carlos Arroyo. How long before the "we want Darko" chants start tonight? Will BHill finally get a clue and play Darko, since we do have a lot invested in him and he needs to play after rotting on the bench for 2 and a half seasons in Detroit, or will Hill go with Garrity as he has been doing? Don't expect to see GHill or Hedo in action due to injury.
