What they're saying: About the Thunder-Lakers series

Lakers guard Kobe Bryant

“We knew this wasn't going to be easy. We knew it was going to be a long series, a dog fight, now more so than before because they have a ton of confidence and know how to play against us, what matchups they like... It's not something where we've lost our swagger. We just have to go defend our home court. It's as simple as that.”

TNT analyst Kenny Smith

“The Lakers are so Hollywood, you knew this was going to happen. Let me tell you one thing about (this series): Kevin Durant is not Aaron Brooks. Last year, they did this with the Rockets and Aaron Brooks was a key player. You keep doing this with Kevin Durant, and they'll be making a movie about this. It will be the Titanic.”

Lakers center Pau Gasol

“We understand this team is playing really well at home. We faced that last year and the year before that. We just have to go home, watch tape, practice what we need to practice on and be ready to come out strong in Game 5.”

Hall of Famer Charles Barkley

“I pull for Scotty Brooks and Maurice Cheeks. That environment looks like it would be fun to be at. I think we thought they could win a game. I didn't think they could win two at home.”

TNT analyst Chris Weber

“I don't think the Lakers are in trouble. I think they'll win at home, lose on the road and then win Game 7. But this isn't the Lakers of old we've seen that they'd come in these games poised, ready to knock 'em out and just win.”
