Thunder vs Lakers: Game Two

20 points from both Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum were not enough for the Lakers to take down the Thunder in Game 2. The Thunder stormed to on a 9-0 run at the ennd of the game to steal the game from the Lakers. Durant led the way for the Thunder with 22 points including the game winner. James Harden added 15 off the bench in another consumate performance.

“I’ve been around these guys four years and they won’t quit. When we were down seven they could have hung their heads and we would have probably lost by 12 and gone on to L.A. It’s all about toughness with our guys. That toughness on the defensive end that’s our game. That’s who we are.”
— Thunder coach Scott Brooks

This series is heading into dangerous territory now for the Lakers. Next game at Staples is critical if the Lakers are to gather any momentum in this series, it has to start next game. Anything later is too late.
