Seattle is 3rd in the Western Conference. San Antonio and Phoenix have already clinched their Playoff berths. The Sonics are still rocking it out. Currently, they just stacked up another two wins; most recent against the Lakers.
This win was not too simple though. Seattle came out on top 102-100, even though they had to do so without the assistance of Ray Allen. Allen, being the team’s top scorer, was put out after the first quarter due to a sprained right ankle.
"We're hoping (Allen) won't be out long. We had it X-rayed and the results were negative, but it was still too sore to come back in the second half. We'll see how he feels tomorrow."
- Seattle coach Nate McMillan
