Bennett's Blunder inched closer to the coveted 50-loss milestone as Denver handed OKC a mile-high beat-down on Wednesday, 112-99. Renaldo Balkman (yes, THE Renaldo Balkman) enjoyed a career night with 14 points and 14 rebounds to lead Denver. Carmelo Anthony enjoyed 22 points. George Karl enjoyed a big gulp and a pizza.
The Blunder played without injured star Kevin Durant, something they better get used to. The face of the franchise is expected to bolt for greener pastures, literally, when his contract expires. OKC is not likely to be able to offer the max contract necessary to retain his services. Oh, but the Lakers and Knicks will.
Damien Wilkins was 0-2 for zero points in 11 minutes, Wazzu-alum Kyle Weaver enjoyed four turnovers, Malik Rose kicked in with four fouls and Thabo Sefalosha was 3-12 from the field to lead the Blunder low-lights. Chucky Atkins, Desmond Mason and Nick Collison did not play...no one noticed.
Blunder: 18-47, last place, 23 games out of first.
Losses to clinch 50: Three
Next loss: Thursday vs. Orlando
Blunder Ironic Factoid:
Blunder "Excellence Polo" on team website: $55. Team record: 18-47, last place.
Los Angeles Laker classic polo: $45. Team record 51-13, first place.
Once again, Bennett gives you less for your money!
