It's beginning to sound like a broken record around here; Blunder lose again! Weird!
Rookie DeJaun Blair's career high 28 points and 21 rebounds led the Spurs past the the struggling Zombie Sonics on Wednesday night, 109-108. The Blunder, unable to lose in regulation, dragged the game into overtime before conceding defeat.
Blair, the All-American center from Pitt who was passed over in the draft because of concerns about his knees, showed teams that passed on him in the draft what he could do. The Spurs selected him 37 overall. The Blunder, foolishly, passed on him and now will live to regret it. Much like they must regret moving to Tornado Alley where they cannot sell out games, even against elite teams like San Antonio. Damn shame that is.
Future ex-Blunder Kevin Durant had 35 points on 14-31 shooting in 47 minutes.
And now, the lowlights:
The Blunder trailed by as many as 19 in the first half and scored a season-low 18points in the first quarter. Only four Blunder managed to score in double figures. Nonads Krystac went 0-2 in nine minutes for zero points and one foul. Durant had seven turnovers and Toshe Sefalosha had five fouls in 38 minutes.
Blunder: 21-17, tied for third place.
Next loss: Friday at Dallas.
Weather Alert: A magnitude 3.3 earthquake shook Jones, Oklahoma. Panicked residents were calmed when it was revealed the trembler was merely Clay Bennett's corndogs settling in his stomach.
More corndongs! More losses! More blunder!
