WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

Here is a look at what players, coaches, analysts and others said during and after the Thunder's Game 2 matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers:

* Kevin Harlan, TNT play-by-play man on Thunder forward Kevin Durant: “My goodness. A guy that big and that long should not move that fast.”

* TNT studio analyst Charles Barkley: “Oklahoma City probably has the best home court advantage in the NBA. That crowd is fantastic.”

* Barkley: “The Lakers are just trying to beat the hell out of these guys. That's the difference in the game tonight.”

* Durant: “A win is a win in the playoffs. Now we just have to focus on Game 3.”

* Durant: “I think I got every shot I wanted to. I shot the ball well. I passed the ball well. We got the win.”

* Barkley: “James Harden, to me, was the difference in the game. Westbrook and Durant were just jacking up threes. Harden ... got them back in the game.”

* Barkley: “It's going to be very hard for (the Lakers) to recover from this game.”

* TNT studio analyst Kenny Smith: “I think the (Oklahoma City) bench was even stunned Steve Blake was that wide open.”

* Thunder coach Scott Brooks: “We knew going into the game (the Lakers) were going to play much harder and play better basketball.”

* Brooks: “I thought Perk was really good. The guy just gives everything he has to his team. He has the heart of a champion. I'm proud of him.”
