Good defense for 3 quarters. We allowed 30 points in the 2nd quarter, but that's to be expected against a very good OKC team. Our ball movement was very good except for a small lull in the 3rd quarter.

If we keep playing like this, we will make the playoffs, and probably have a good chance of moving up a few spots too.

OKC has been a nightmare for his team to beat, it's good they finally broke through that barrier.

we beat the thunder, and looked good doing it. things we saw in the jazz game carried over into this game and we can be optimistic that it will continue to improve going forward

6 players in double figures. Man what a game. This team is looking really good and everyone on the team looks like they want to give it their best now. I'm very confident about the road trip coming up.

Great game to watch. Very entertaining and finally beat OKC!

That win somehow felt even better than I thought it would. I really think we have finally righted the ship.

Held OKC to under 45%. Durant and Westbrook combined for 16-48. Defense anyone? Only thing that kept them in the game were Durants free throws. At least 10 of his made free throws were result of BS calls.

Defense was great. Speficifically, Kobe on Westbrook, and Clark & Metta on Durant. Sure, Durant and Westbrook missed some open looks but for the most part the Lakers did as great a job as you could on those two superstars.

We won't shoot 55% percent every game; however, if our defense is consistently this good, we'll win most games...

Exactly. While the Thunder are probably still the better team, today's validation of our latest team chemistry experiment should indicate success on the horizon...mainly because we have the talent to beat most teams easily. If they are all simply replicating the formula from the past few games, we should be experiencing some easy games against average opponents. Stay tuned...this just got even MORE interesting. There may just be light at the end of the tunnel...though that may be an oncoming train. Time will tell. Kobe, Good work. KEEP IT UP. PASS. Become an upgraded version of Jason Kidd...it's what this team needs.
The End is nigh. Time for a total Cut and Shuffle. Kobe contract was a mistake...time to avoid making more. The future is here, whether we want it to be or not. An era is over, but for the death rattle, and it's time for the cycle to begin anew. Growth and change are scary and painful, but alas...nothing worth achieving comes easily.

Last game of the season is against the Rockets , a blowout win qualifies us for the playoffs ...

We upset the number 1 seed SAS in 6 ... beat the Grizz in 6 in the Semi Finals while the Floppers upset OKC in 7 ...

The battle of LA is on , we win Game 7 as Hack a Eandre and Ginger is in full effect ...

We meet the Heat in the Finals , Christina Bosh breaks his left leg by slipping in the pool while shooting for Maxim one week before the Finals ... we win the title in 6.

Good night
