La Lakers Vs Oklahoma City Thunder December 2012

11 Dec

The Lakers travelled to Oklahhoma to take on the runners up of the nba championship on friday night. The lakers made it a very interesting ending to the game but could not finish off the Thunder. The Lakers had lost two out of there last three games and needed a win unlike the Thunder who were on fire with a six game win streak. The difference was that the Thunder were the more aggressive team and they dominated in the second quarter where they effectively won the game. Both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook had strong games with Durant leading all scorers with 36points and Westbrook with 33. Also Kobe Bryant had 35 for the Lakers. Pau Gasol and Steve Nash sat this match out which left the lakers struggling for scoring from other players. At one point in the final quarter the thunder were ahead by 19 but the Lakers came back at them but it was to little too late with the final score 114-108 for the Thunder.The Lakers have not started well at all this season and need to start playing if they are to challenge for a championship. The Thunder are playing some great stuff and are now on a seven straight win run so if they keep this form up , no doubt they will be up with the best at the end of the year.
