Thunder: What’s The Buzz about Game 2?
If you think Oklahoma city is abuzz about the Thunder’s Game 2 victory against the Lakes, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
The interwebs had all sorts of great content about Oklahoma City’s stunning 77-75 victory against Los Angeles.
Start with Los Angeles Times’ columnist Bill Plaschke’s take on Kobe Bryant and his role in the Lakers’ late-game collapse. Plaschke has covered Kobe ever since he arrived in LaLa Land 16 years ago, so he’s a man who knows of what he writes.
“And,” Plaschke wrote of Kobe, “I’ve never seen him fall so completely apart in a moment so incredibly big.”
Go read his column.
Also worth your time is Mike Bresnahan’s game story. The Lakers beat writer for the LA Times references the Lakers’ halfcourt meeting with a little over two minutes to go. It came after the Lakers went up seven points and the Thunder called timeout. It was something that I saw and made note of because you don’t usually see players huddle on their way to the bench for a timeout, but in the crush of what happened after that, I didn’t follow up.
Bresnahan writes that Kobe called the guys on the floor together as they went to the bench.
“Finish strong,” he hollered.
The Lakers, of course, did anything but.
