The Oklahoma City Thunder's seven-game winning streak was snapped as they fell to the Atlanta Hawks 97-90. Even though the Thunder has the best record in the NBA, they have struggled on the road all season as seven of their eight total loses have come on the road.
The Thunder did get 35 points from Kevin Durant and 25 from Russell Westbrook, plus 10 points each from James Harden and Serge Ibaka but it was not enough. The rest of the Thunder squad only put up 10 total points. The Hawks had a more balanced scoring attack with Josh Smith leading the way with 30 points and 12 rebounds. The Hawks were able to upset the Thunder even without their best player Joe Johnson.
The Thunder made a comeback in the third quarter and were actually within one point with 2:18 left on a Durant three-pointer to make it an 89-88 game, but the Hawks responded with a three-pointer of their own to outscore the Thunder 8-2 over the final two minutes of the game to upset the Thunder.
