This game was rigged. Russell Westbrook the Thunder's actual best player got into foul trouble and only played 29 minutes. I hate the NBA. He has been playing at a high level. Gets no respect.

You do realize that if the Thunder were in the East they would probably be a 3 seed correct? Just because they're 8 seed doesnt make them bad. They played amazing defense tonight and had one of the best regular season defenses as well. You don't see great defense like this played in the east

Why do the Thunder go for Green or Westbrook or something in the last minute of clutch games. I swear he(Durant) never takes the final shot in this team...

Nonetheless, good win Lakers, win 1 game in Thunder and this is all over.

Lol what a tool.

He took the same amount of shots just because he made them he stopped playing with ego?
Laker fans are bandwagons.
Hate you when you down. And love you when you on top smh

Did I say the Thunder were bad? they are a good team but 3rd seed? ...they would be what the Heat are at. The 5th seed most likely.

Fact is if L.A want to win the west and actually beat the Cavs or the Magic in the finals they are going to need to play alot better as a team. Reason they won last year was due to Ariza's production, Odom playing huge along with Kobe and Gasol. They need production out of Odom Artest abd Bynum if they are to win it again. The other elite are too good for them to just play average. Just Kobe and Gasol won#'t be enough.

The offense looks bad.. too many Kobe/Pau bailouts. Odom REALLY needs to step it up, he's been a nonfactor offensively so far.

Kobe's elevation is his main problem right now, he couldn't finish well around the rim and got blocked a bunch of times. You have to also give credit to Thabo... he's always been a great Kobe defender and Kobe went off in the 4th when he wasn't on him.

Yeah, Lakers 12 months ago would have beaten this Lakers side by a dozen or so.

They still have ttime to pick it up, and they know how to win ugly which is good. Defense is still strong. Conceded 79 and 92 in the first 2 games.

Thunder Outplayed Lakers. I was rooting for Thunder.

When I watch the game and it makes me think why Western Conf are more entertaining than Eastern Conf and it made me think no wonder why Eastern teams always lost to Western teams in the final championship game because Western Teams have more challenge and better teams, toughest Right now, the western teams.....almost all of them have the same records (50-20) whatever.

That's why West usually play against toughest teams til meet East in final championship games and realized it was so easy to against East team because East usually against weak/easily team and have the weak records.

This is true. I remember what happened to Cleveland last season and the Lakers two seasons ago when they slaughtered weak opposition and then had a hard time adjusting when they finally met a really strong team.

OKC is so much stronger than Chicago defensively, there's no comparison. This is a really tough team. Durant and Westbrook are monsters, but the rest of the team is very strong defensively.

Listen cavs fan, you dont know what it takes to win a title, let alone beat Orlando in a series. This Lakers team is fine, especially if we get Utah in the next round, which seems likely
