OKC Thunder: Sights and Sounds from Game 2

Just when you thought things couldn't get any crazier at The Peake, Game 2 came along.
by Jenni Carlson Published: May 16, 2012

*To the folks who left with the Thunder down seven points and two minutes left — you regretting that decision Thursday morning?


What the Twittersphere had to say during Game 2:

@DaveTelep: The fact that OKC Thunder GM Sam Presti has never been Executive of the Year seems mystifying to me.

@NOTSportsCenter: Hours before Game 2 tips off, and the #Lakers are unofficially down by 15 to the #Thunder already.

@tmains4: I'm not a Thunder fan. I just simply hate the Lakers.

@mkokc: Love Twitter. People at the game, fans at home, Sooners and Pokes. All complaining about the refs.

@NotBillWalton: Thunder/Lakers has slowed down to a snail's pace with excessive foul calls. These refs need to swallow their whistles unless they see blood!

@A_Boogs_life: The Lakers barely beat the Thunder in the playoffs in 2010. Thunder are way better. And Kobe is way older.


Highlights from the live game chat at

8:45 p.m.: Strategic: The Lakers have been holding opponents to 81 points in their wins. No way they can hold the Thunder to 81!

8:46 p.m.: Jacob Unruh: The white and blue shirts look awesome on TV.

8:55 p.m.: BB37: Agreed. Looks better than the all blue or white.

9:35 p.m.: Mike Sherman: This game is being played at the Lakers' pace. And it looks like it will be difficult to break with the way it's being called.

11:06 p.m.: Soonerule: I BELIEVE!

11:08 p.m.: BB in San Diego: You just knew the Thunder would not go down easily. Harden has made the difference the last few minutes.

11:09 p.m.: ThunderSonics: I hate nail-biters.
