Please, Sonics, at least pretend to try

168 points. One hundred and sixty-eight points.

That’s how much the Denver Nuggets rolled up the score on the Seattle Supersonics last night. Denver won by a margin of 52 points. No All-Star team in NBA history, with a non-stop diet of uncontested dunks, ever ran the score so high.

It was the single worst defeat in the history of the franchise. Not even in their first expansion season did the Sonics play this badly. Worse, the Sonics obviously gave up on the game in their first quarter and started looking for the fastest road back to their hotel rooms. Nobody on either side even pretended to play defense.

Why are we supposed to be trying to keep this team in town again?

Gary Washburn at the P-I hasn’t even tried to summarize this game yet. [p-i] Maybe the poor guy can’t find words that the newspaper will let him print.

    I wonder why the Nuggets stopped just before the record number of points. A sad day for the sonics.
