Lakers-Thunder Open Thread

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK - MAY 14: Andrew Bynum #17 of the Los Angeles Lakers tries to drive on Kendrick Perkins #5 of the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game One of the Western Conference Semifinals in the 2012 NBA Playoffs on May 14, 2012 at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Oklahoma City defeated Los Angeles 119-90.

The NBA levied fines against two Lakers today. Devin Ebanks was fined 25 grand for acting a fool after he got tossed from Game One. Andrew Bynum got touched for 10 for skipping a mandatory media session yesterday. That money should be placed in a fund and used to compensate Laker fans who sat through Monday's massacre.

Thunder are favored by 8 in this one. A few books are moving the line to 8 1/2. Basically, very few people expect the Lakers to return to L.A. with a series split. Derp derp derp.

Carouse responsibly whenever someone mentions:

  • How the Thunder had just four turnovers in Game One,
  • How Game Two is (or is not) a "must win" for the Lakers,
  • That horrible 3-2 zone defense Mike Brown tried Monday night,
  • The Shaq-Barkley "shirt off" bet, or
  • The "college-type atmosphere" at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
