WHAT THEY'RE SAYING

Here is a look at what players, coaches, analysts and others were saying during and after Game 4 between the Lakers and Thunder:

* TNT game analyst Steve Kerr: “This was totally different. The Lakers were in their own beds last night. This was not your typical back-to-back situation.”

* Kerr: “Can you imagine if you're a lifelong Sonics fan to sit here and watch this club, which has an unlimited future? They left you, broke your heart.”

* Kerr: “How about the play of Kevin Durant late in games in the playoffs? He had the game winner ... against Dallas. He had the game winner in Game 2 against the Lakers. I mean he has been ridiculous.”

* TNT play-by-play man Kevin Harlan: “The Thunder has broken the collective heart of the Lakers for the second time in three games.”

* Durant: “We just kept believing. On defense, we just kept helping each other out. Russell (Westbrook) was great for us in getting us back into this game.”

* Durant on what he saw on the final shot: “I knew (Metta World Peace) was going to play off of me just a little bit. Getting to the rim, I didn't want to chance that with (Andrew Bynum). I saw some air space and I was able to knock it down.”

* Westbrook: “I knew we could win it the whole time. My job as a point guard is to come out and keep competing.”

* Westbrook: “I just tried to stay confident (after the injury before halftime) and come out and be positive. I was a little stiff. We needed this win and I just came back out and tried to get it.”
