Kevin Durant has so far scored 28 points to lead the Thunder and all scorers so far, while Kobe Bryant is just as active at the other end.
In fact, Bryant is one rebound short of collecting a triple-double.
So far he’s scored 15 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds in a game the Lakers are so desperate to win.
“The energy is good. A lot of good things are happening,” said Lakers coach Mike D’antoni
It’s been an exciting three quarters so far with both teams going at each other as though it was a final. The Lakers, which defeated the Utah Jazz 102-84 on Friday dropped four successive games prior to the win.
The Los Angeles Lakers have won just three of its 13 games so far in 2013 and need to start a consistent winning form to avoid missing out at playing in the playoffs.
