It's getting ugly out there on the road for the Blunder - Two losses in three nights, 88-86 against Memphis and 100-99 to the Cavaliers, who were forced to start Daniel Gibson for the first time since 2007 due to injuries to to Mo Williams and Delonte West. Not to worry, because Lebron ran the Cavs' offense most of the night, scoring 13 points in the fourth quarter and sealing the win with a monster block on Durant with .9 seconds remaining.
It was the 20th loss for the Blunder...21st if you throw in the $1.6 million that shady owner/worldclass douchebag Clay Bennett lost when he 'settled' a lawsuit for ripping off the Seattle fans.
Lebron James was one rebound away from a triple-double as he went off for 37 points nine rebounds and 12 assists. I rarely pimp movies on here, however I highly recommend seeing MORE THAN A GAME, the LeBron James story about his High School basketball team in Ohio. It's awesome - do not miss this movie.
Future ex-Blunder Kevin Durant, as always, led the Zombie Sonics with 34 points and 10 rebounds, his 18th straight game with at least 25 points. The kid can play. It'll be devestating for the franchise when he leaves, as expected.
Lowlights: Nick Collison had 5 fouls in 19 minutes and a paltry 2 points on 1-2 shooting. I think Nick hates it in OKC and I doubt he is back next season. Ibaka had 3 turnovers in 19 minutes. As a team the Blunder shot only 38% from the field, and defensively they were caught cheating (Bennett's influence, no doubt) in the paint and were penalized for a three-second violation.
More Corndogs! More Losses! More Blunder!
Blunder: 20-24 (20 losses...losses always come first in OKC!)
Next Loss: Wednesday vs. Chicago.
To Do List: See MORE THAN A GAME.
