That was impressive!
If you were waiting for the Lakers to flip the switch...wait no more.
The Champs rolled up their sleeves and flexed their muscles Tuesday night and the Thunder ran scurrying to their rooms. A beatdown in the Staples Center put L.A. back on top 3-2 in the series. The Lakers showed energy and fight while the Thunder showed a relative lack of interest.
If the Lakers play like that there wont be a Game 7. If the Lakers play like that theyll repeat as Champs.
Itll be interesting now to see if this young OKC team is capable of picking themselves up off the mat for Game 6. That was embarrassing and deflating. This has been a resilient team, but their resilience is about to be put to a major test against the suddenly awakened Kings of the West.
