This is turning out to be an amazing Playoff season…
OKC has a 6-0 winning record at the moment, which tops their franchise lists for most wins in the Playoff season.
The Oklahoma City Thunder’s offense was atrocious in the second half of Game 2 against the Los Angeles Lakers. They managed just 12 points in the third quarter and, with just two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, they had scored only eight points in that period. Offensively, they couldn’t have been much worse.
Then, a combination of inspiration and a Kobe Bryant meltdown completely altered the course of the game. Oklahoma City mounted a furious comeback in the closing minutes, coming from seven points down with 2:08 remaining to win 77-75, taking a 2-0 lead in the series.
Now turning to the East, the Pacers have shut down the Heat in game 3 with a 94-75 win yesterday! Looks like the Heat need an energy boost after Lebron wearing down in the second half and Wayde’s cold shooting streak (2-of-13).
James downplayed the idea that he and his teammates would need to maintain some kind of “edge” to be best prepared for a pivotal Game 3 many felt would tilt the series.
“There’s no secrets about an edge or not having an edge. It’s the postseason. You have to be ready and approach every possession as if it’s the last. I’m always going to have an edge, so that’s not going to change.” – James, playing in his 100th postseason game.
Pacers take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.
