Thunder Tied Series With the Lakers

The Oklahoma City Thunder has now been the one of the nightmares for the defending champs in the playoffs as they clobbered the Lakers, 110-89 on Game 4, that tied the series 2-2. Kevin Durant lead the Thunder with 22 points, 8 short of his average in the season. But that was enough for the Thunder, as they put on their efforts together starting with Russell Westbrook making way with 16 points, setting his team with fastbreak plays, James Harden following up his good performance in Games 3 with 15 points and Jeff Green's 15 points as well. The Lakers had no answer for every Thunder run in the game and started the game slow, with Kobe Bryant busy passing the ball to his teammates in the post. Bryant finished only with 12 points. Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum had 13 points with no other Laker scoring over 13 points. Game 5 will be fun indeed with the Lakers going back home and the Thunder carrying the momentum.
