I can explain why I didn’t post a game recap last night: it’s because the Thunder didn’t actually play a basketball game last night.
They held a glorified shoot around, with the Atlanta Hawks playing the part of ball boy.
OKC would hit a wide open bucket, and the Hawks would retrieve the Spalding and then kindly return it to the Thunder players. This went on for about 48 minutes.
The Thunder shot a ridiculous 58.1% from the field. And as easy as it was for the home team to score in the paint with the Hawks lacking any sort of rim protection, OKC scored just as effortlessly from 23 feet away from the basket.
