Phoenix, under new coach Alvin Gentry, torched the Blunder 140-118 on Friday night as Leandro Barbosa scored 41 points. The Suns improved to 3-0 under Gentry who took over for Terry Porter and promptly re-installed the Suns hyper-tempo offense that has unleashed 140 points in three straight games.
Future ex-Blunder Kevin Durant scored 35 for OKC which improved to 0-2 under new mascot, Bumble the Bison, ensuring them of a losing season in the dustbowl. I think congratulations are in order to Clay Bennett; a confirmed loser! Chucky Atkins went 1-6 for three points, Durant had five turnovers and Jeff Green picked up five fouls to lead the Blunder low-lights.
Blunder 13-42, last place.
Next loss: Saturday vs. Golden State.
More Corndogs! More Losses! More Blunder! More Bumble!
