The Blunder suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the Hornets of New Orleans on Wednesday, 97-92. The team that was once the show in OKC, returned for another ritual beat down of the Blunder. It was the Hornet's 10th straight win against the Zombie Sonics, their fourth in a row overall, pushing over .500 for the first time this season at 17-16.
Future ex-Blunder Kevin Durant led the way with 27 points in 39 minutes. He fell short of 30 points for the second straight game after going a franchise record seven straight games scoring 30 or more. Kid's a stud. If, like me, you believe KD moves in free agency, it'll be a dagger in the Blunder fans hearts as the face of the franchise leaves. Unfortunately, such is life in modern sports. Loyalty is a memory.
Lowlights: Collison went 0-for-2 in 18 minutes for zero points. He did have a personal foul. I heard it was a good one. Sefalosha went 1-for-5 in 25 minutes. Jeff Green led the team with four fouls in 41 minutes and Durant had four quality turnovers.
The Blunder certainly have improved over last season's debacle. Of course, improving on a 23 win season is almost a certainty. It's nice to see the players improving
Announced 'attendance' was 17,836. Even with the bloated numbers, it was another announced non-sellout in OKC. Surprising that OKC didn't rally for their beloved Hornets appearance. Then again, like McLendon said, "we'll be happy just to break even".
Blunder: 19-16, tied with Utah for third.
Next loss: Indiana on Saturday the 9th.
Current weather trauma: WIND CHILL ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT.
