Lakers survive Halata's heroics to get to .500
What a battle. This was easily the best game of the young 5.6 season. The Sonics were without captain Mike Blank and the team missed him dearly. The team needed him to be the facilitator and controller of the offense. The Sonics struggled early as the Lakers came out of the gates on fire, leading by 10 very early into the game. The Lakers had their usual bad turnovers and struggled with layups as the Sonics mounted a comeback. The team took the lead in the 2nd half, but lost it and lost focus as the Lakers led by 9 with 2 minutes to go. The timer then broke around the 1:45 mark, leading to several players to yell at the NOBL's first lady. The storyline of the game was then, would she hit Matt Glenn in frustration for the verbal assault. The Sonics then put on a wild rally to close it within 2. Randy Young hit 1 of 2 free throws with 4 seconds left to put the Lakers up 3. The Sonics set 3 screens to get Paul Halata open enough (although triple covered) to get his shot off, it banked and rattled across the rim 3 times before falling in. In OT the Sonics were drained from the emotion as the Lakers were fired up about almost losing after having a 9 point lead. What an NOBL classic.
