Joe Johnson scored 25 points and the Atlanta Hawks held off a late rally by the Blunder to remain a perfect 5-0 with an 89-85 victory Sunday in OKC. Four players scored in double figures for the suprising Hawks.
Future ex-Blunder Kevin Durant led OKC for the fifth straight game with 20 points, in 40 minutes. The Blunder managed a paltry 39% shooting from the floor. Perpetual center project Johan Petro led the Blunder low-lights with 2 points in 19 minutes.
Kevin Durant is already logging a lot of minutes early in the season and is carrying this team offensively. If he does not get some help soon he is going to get worn out before the all-star game or get injured before season's end. Let hope neither happens but as the minutes and contact pile up, something's gotta give because he's not a big guy.
The 1-4 Blunder missed a sellout for the second straight Sunday night.
Next Loss: Monday at Indiana.
