James Harden led the bench with 17 points on 4 for 11 shooting and hitting 9 of his 10 shots from the line.
The biggest problem in the first matchup for the Los Angeles Lakers was turnovers, they turned the rock over too often against an Oklahoma team that just wasn’t making mistakes. They shot well going 43.2% from the paint and making 7 of 16 three-point shots, however nobody on the Lakers side would go on to dominate the game.
Kobe Bryant had 20 points on 7 for 17 shooting and making 1 of 3 from behind the arc. Andrew Bynum also had 20 to go with a game high 14 rebounds, him and Kobe both had 3 turnovers. Apart for them two nobody did much with Pau Gasol only having 10 points and World Meta Peace with 12. Nobody from the Lakers bench would go on to put up double digit points.
NBA Betting Predictions: The Oklahoma Thunder have just been flat out playing great basketball With the way the Los Angeles Lakers have difficulty traveling I don’t see them grabbing a win on the road in this series vs the Oklahoma Thunder.
