Misadventures in Sportscasting

(me on the air today at some radio station, doing a newscast, which I'm almost never called upon to do)

"Ray Allen had 35 points, six assists, and seven points in the effort for the Sonics; an effort that ultimately...proved...futile."

I know there are more efficient ways of saying that a team lost a game but none came to mind.

Whoa! You have to write your own news copy?

And "futile" is a good word, one more people should use when referring to the Sonics.
