Oklahoma City, OK (Sporting Alert) — The popular NBA saying is “win or go home,” but tonight the Oklahoma City Thunder fans are telling the Los Angeles Lakers team on their visit to the Chesapeake Energy Arena to “lose and go home.”
The Lakers find themselves 3-1 down the seven game series, following their latest 100-103 defeat at the weekend and face a must win game tonight to keep their season alive.
Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, the superstars for the Thunder this season, and particular this playoffs series are at it again – leading the way with numerous big-time shots to constantly stifle any run Kobe Bryant and Lakers have made the series.
There are many, understandable, who believe that the Lakers can still come back from 3-1, but NBA legend Charles Barkley believes the series will be over tonight.
While the Thunder look the likes of Durant, Westbrook, Serge Ibaka and Kendrick Perkins have all gotten off the speedy starts in scoring and rebounding.
The Lakers are currently putting their eggs into one basket, with Bryant hitting most the shots early and leads the way in scoring.
