Individually, kobe and howard were great( one of the best games for them) , duhon had his hands on for a second, other than that useless production.

OKC's flow killed us .. this is the best time to start a run !!!

The Lakers are going to have to live with what Westbrook can do because the Lakers have Steve Nash. His 3s are mainly what made it look so bad out there. I think the Lakers can live with it if he doesn't get those 3s.

Metta needs to be replaced as the main perimeter defender though. He couldn't make Durant feel even remotely uncomfortable, and that's his main job.

He'll show up when the games really count. We have no better option

He's not going to get it done. He didn't get it done against OKC last season, and he looks even worse this season.

The Lakers need to go through every avenue to try to get a perimeter defender. The Lakers have Pau Gasol or half the mini-MLE to use.

Metta should try fronting Durant, pretty much denying him the ball. It was how Lebron played him in the finals, and it worked out well.

To the tune of 30.6 points on almost 55% shooting? Durant really is the worst scoring matchup in the NBA, there is no answer for him especially with the way OKC is using him

For Lakers fans on suicide watch, here's OKC coach Scott Brooks to console you: "We all know that the Lakers ...
are one of the best teams. They don't have the record right now, but they will. They're going to get some guys healthy, and they're going to get some rhythm, but they have the best center in basketball and they have one of the best players ever. Steve Nash will come back, and Coach D'Antoni will continue to get that team better."

When Durant did get the ball, he gets his points. But when he doesn't, which is because of the pressure from Lebron, it forced the ball more into Westbrook's hands and of course he goes into chuck mode.

Edit: Lebron knew he wasn't going to completely shut down KD, but he can at least deny him a couple of touches that will force Westbrook into making plays. Which was critical in crunch time.

And the Lakers made him look even better than that. If the Lakers can make him play even a little below average, it'll go a long way.

No team can win vs OKC when Westbrook has such a lucky game, hitting running 3s and unbelievable floaters. The Lakers played well, now it's time to win 6-7 games in a row.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Lebron is also coincidentally the best player on both ends.
