Yahoo! Sports Box Score:

What is your initial reaction to tonight's result?

Complete shock. The Washington Generals are normally a talented team that wins every single game. I have no idea how they might have lost tonight.

What was tonight's turning point?

When a reasonable shot by the Generals was inexplicably blocked by Big Easy.

What was, overall, the main reason the Thunder lost/won?

Special K's 28 Points. He's an unprecedented source of offense for the Globetrotters.

What's the key statistic to understanding tonight's game?

The Globetrotters outrebounded the Generals 57-39.

Out of WTLC's four main themes to the season (I would link the previous 6 words), which one, if any, was a factor tonight?

The last five minutes of offense. The Globetrotters were great in that regard tonight, as they were able to rely on Jet Williams for a quick 6 point burst.
