The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Sonic euthanasia

We could have used a couple dozen more of these. No Third-Quarter Drought™; two double-doubles (Marc Jackson and Desmond Mason); another clutch bucket by CP3; nobody even close to foul trouble all night. But Seattle declined to roll over and die: Ray Allen dropped in 36 points, and the Hornets escaped with a 104-99 victory over the Sonics, taking the season series 3-1.

Then again, maybe we couldn't. Aaron Williams took a pop to the knee after the fifth minute; David West, still with ankle trouble, didn't play at all.

Chris Paul led the Bees' scoring with 21; both Jackson and Mason scored 17; Speedy Claxton and Kirk Snyder dropped in 10 each; rookie Brandon Bass, making his earliest appearance ever, got a career high of 9 plus four boards in 23 minutes.

The last regular-season game at the Ford is Friday, against the Jazz.

When I read the title I thought it had somthing to do with the Coney Deal at the local drive in.
