Monday night the Oklahoma City Thunder smacked the Lakers around like they were their little brothers. Leading by as many as 35 points in the game, the Thunder would go on to win 119-90. OKC got out in transition, got stops, and pretty much just had their way with the Lakers. The Lakers found themselves down by 15 at halftime. It score would get no closer than that, as the Thunder struck lightning coming out in the 2nd half and going on a 15-2 run and it was just smooth sailing for the rest of the game. L.A. will need to bounce back in game 2 tonight to avoid being down 2-0 in the series. Besides play defense, the Lakers will actually need to come out with a sense of urgency. Also, Ramon Sessions and Steve Blake will need to do a better job on guarding Westbrook, who pretty much had his way the whole game. Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins who was injured in the game, is expected to play in Game 3 tonight at 9:30 on TNT.
