TJ Ford had 24 points and 10 assists to lead the Pacers past the Blunder in Indianapolis on Monday night, 107-99. Future ex-Blunder Kevin Durant netted 37 points on 13-27 shooting in 40 minutes, another long night for the pride of Texas. The former Longhorn led offensively-challenged OKC for the 7th time this season, carrying the entire burden alone. How much longer can he carry this work load? PJ will burn out his only star if he doesn't dial down Durant's minutes and the pressure to carry the load every night on his young shoulders.
Desmond Mason led the Blunder low-lights going 0-5 for two points in 29 minutes and contributed a technical foul in the third quarter as the Blunder watched a ten point lead turn into yet another OKCBlunder. It has to be painful for these players, but don't blame them, blame Bennett. He decimated the team to help enable his coveted move. He got his wish, but this is the price. These are merely pieces left over from what once was a basketball team. It's going to be a long season in OKC for these players. It'll be an even longer one for the fans that will be expected to watch and financially support Bennett's blunder, on display night after losing night. According to attendance figures, the Blunder are not selling out the Ford Center...and we're only seven games into the season. Ouch.
No word on if the Indy crowd enjoyed the Blunder's New York Knick tribute uniforms.
Next loss: Wednesday vs. Orlando.
