Sonics/Rockets Matchup: Not Happenin


Recently, a fellow blogger wrote to me about an article of comparison he made between the Sonics and the Rockets. He took some in depth analysis into it, so I'd suggest taking a gander at it. It takes a look at why he is glad that the Sonics will not face the Rockets in the first round due to their previous games. Enjoy!

Sonics drop to Mavericks

Seattle is keeping itself one game away from clinching the Northwest title. This has actually been going on for some time. The Sonics have lost the last six games in a row. Hopefully, it’s just stress related.

Either way, as of now the Sonics are scheduled to play against the Rockets with T-Mac and the gentle Yao in the first round. With how the Sonics have been playing, they better start getting ready for some competition.

Updates

As of now, the Seattle SuperSonics are matched up to first go against the Houston Rockets in the Playoff run. Both teams have been playing pretty poorly the last few games. This brought Houston down from the 5th spot to the 6th.

Rashard Lewis has been sitting out the last two games after having pain in his right foot. It turns out to be nothing serious and Lewis will return for the following game. The injury was a bone bruise and a bruise on his tendon.

"Everything's cool. Rashard will sit out a few more days to heal, then we'll re-evaluate it this weekend. We'll know more after that."
