heheAnother Laker win driven by a strong finish. The Lakers looked like they were about to blow out the Thunder Tuesday night, but took it easy in the third. Then again, they showed why they are the best fourth quarter team.

Seemingly every Laker got involved. For most of the game Kobe and Gasol were the only Lakers in double figures, but in the end, 5 Lakers hit 10 or more with every Laker scoring at least 4 points.

The Lakers shot 53% from the field, 42% from three, 78% from the strip, and had only 11 turnovers.

The only downside was the fact that the Lakers blew the lead and got outboarded 45 to 30.

Now, the bests of the night…

Top 3 Laker Performers

1) Kobe showed fans in OKC why he is the reigning MVP. 36 points (26 in the second half). 4 boards, and 5 assists.

2) Ariza did the little things once again. Really bailed the Lakers out to help blow the game back open with some good finishes. 8 points and 2 steals.

3) Luke had a good game tonight. 5-7 shooting, hit a three, 5 boards, 4 assists.

Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Not sure tonight… everyone did their role.

Play of the Game: Ariza’s finish for the foul and one!

What to Look for Next Game: A fun one between Shaq and Kobe thursday night!

    smush of the day: id say sasha

  • Kobe

    Sasha was born a smush. He got his contract and has licked ass all season long. As far as those Celdick fans that said the lakers were going to be thumped by OKC….where are they now?…oh yea i forgot…suckin marbury’s dick

    how did every laker score at least 4 points when mbenga, brown & morrison didn’t touch the court?

    Does it not scare anyone else how good Kevin Durant is? He is only in his second year and is scoring 20+ on close to 50% shooting. Everyone talks about Kobe vs Lebron, but I have a feeling that Durant could be a dark horse and pass both of them in the long run. I hate to say it since I love Kobe more than my Fiance, but Durant is going to be the best player in the world in a couple of years. What do you guys think?

    how do we feel about moore(especially if we don’t get bynum back) and especially marbury going to the celtics? does this make us a bit worried?
    it’s a bit irritating. a crappy subpar team that won the championship by getting two hall of famers. and now when they are not playing well enough to get the ring again they try get marbury.

    but i’im wondering if there is a worry.
    or will marbury be to the celtics what iverson was to detroit?
