“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.
