Quantcast 2009-2010 Oklahoma City Thunder: Thunder vs Hawks


Thunder @ Hawks - Preview



A dominating performance by the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday against the Miami Heat put them back into the winning column after losing their previous two games, each by a single point.

But led by Kevin Durant’s 36-point performance, on 14-of-18 shooting, denied the Heat’s chance at a three-game winning streak.

The Thunder begin a four-game road trip against the Atlanta Hawks, one of the best home teams in the East. They are 16-4 at home this year, tied for the second best home record in the conference.

The Hawks are in the middle of a four-game home stand, with wins in their first two matchups, including a thrilling 102-101 comeback, buzzer-beating win over Phoenix on Friday. After Amare Stoudemire made one of two free throws to put the Suns up by two, Jamal Crawford nailed a 28-footer as time expired to capture Atlanta’s fifth win in six games.


Oklahoma City has put in commitments to the defensive side of the floor this season, keeping opponents to a 43.7 percent shooting clip, good for second best in the league.

They will have their work cut out for them against Atlanta, one of the top teams in the NBA in point differential—outscoring opponents by an average of 5.7 points per game.
