Given the spirit of the season, I am not going into detail about yesterday's contest. The Atlanta Hawks powered ahead in the fourth quarter and won a 99-88 decision.
There. Simple to the point. Concise. Won't take up much of your time.
The problem, however, is that it doesn't give you anything else. It gives the score, but it fails to mention another Thunder collapse. It tells you who was victorious, but it stops there.
If you must know, here is the breakdown. Oklahoma City got another great game from Kevin Durant while giving up a bigger game to an opposing player. Joe Johnson abused the Thunder to the tune of a triple-double, and the Hawks outscored OKC by ten points in the final 12 minutes.
So by doing the math, Atlanta was having fits trying to put the NBA's worst team away. Haven't we heard this before?
That is the running theme for the 2008 portion of the schedule, and I can't wait for the new year. 2009 brings many exciting opportunities, and I will be back tomorrow with my non-Scrooge part of the Thunder Christmas.
