Thunder bandwagon: Sights and Sounds from Game 1 vs. Lakers

The Thunder players and coaches weren't the only ones who had a long layoff. The fans did, too, and they were ready and raring to go.

What the Twittersphere had to say during Game 1:

@RickieFowlerPGA: Let's go @okcthunder!! #ThunderUp

@DickieV: My buddies say Thunder in 6. They love @KDTrey5 & so do I — KD is special but playoff exp. + Kobe tells me Lakers in 7!

@RealSkipBayless: I like the Lakers, w/ G7 momentum, to steal G1 from rusty Thunder as Artest feeds off boos. But I like young Thunder to wear down LA in 6.


Highlights from the live game chat at

8:34 p.m.: Soonerule: Sounds rowdy at The Peake.

8:43 p.m.: BB in San Diego: In NY or Philly, stuff would have been flying out of the stands at Ron.

8:43 p.m.: Earl, NYC: Or in Detroit.

9:07 p.m.: Jerry: There's no way Blake can guard Harden!

9:07 p.m.: MartzMimic: The Bearddozer?

9:08 p.m.: ThunderSonics: If you lay off, he shoots the three. If you guard him tight, he drives by you. Best offensive skill set to have.

10:07 p.m.: Earl, NYC: Rust? What rust? Great start to the third.

10:41 p.m.: Timmy: Can we carry a few points over to Game 2?
