Since my first prediction was such a big hit(joking), ive decided with help from others to go ahead and make another one for tomorrow nights game at OKC. So here we go.
1st Quarter: Lakers come out looking to feed the bigs, all players make a considerable effort to go inside and attack the basket. In doing so Pau, Drew get off to a hot start, after a couple easy baskets/dunks Scott Brooks decides to take a time-out to calm his teams nerves. Lakers continue to get stops and feed the post, and at the end of the first i see Lakers being up by around 6-9 Points.
2nd Quarter: With the OKC bench on the floor the shots that didnt fall in game 5 start falling for Harden, and Green. A couple easy baskets by the Thunder force Phil to take an early time-out, after the time out Lakers go on a mini-run to push the lead into the 6-8 points range again. Starters come on the floor and extend the lead to double digits by halftime. Lakers up by 10-12 at half-time.
3rd Quarter: Both teams come out with a sense of urgency, they begin to trade baskets, with the game beginning to play the way OKC wants it to(fast pace) and the lead slowly slipping away, Kobe sense the need to take-over. Kobe sinks a couple tough shots, and another 3 to push the lead back into double digits by the end of the third. Lakers up by 9-13 by the end of the third.
4th Quarter: Phil sensing the importance of this game leaves more starters in at the beginning of the fourth then usual. The Lakers begin to add on to their lead, and force Scotty to take an early time-out. After the time-out OKC makes a couple shots and the crowd begins to get into it, Phil inserts Kobe into the ball-game earlier then usual, and Kobe begins to manage the game the way he did in game 5. He makes a couple shots, makes a couple passes, and lead grows. OKC senses the game slipping away and begin taking bad shots, Lakers Win!
