Series: Lakers lead 3-2
View from the enemy: Forum Blue and Gold
Nick Collison was right on. “We can’t rely on the building to win the game for us.” No you can not. It’s not like this is the first hostile environment the Lakers have played in. They’ll be ready for the Sea of Blue. Though we’ll sure do our best to make an impact.
There’s honestly not a ton to say about it. We know what the Thunder need to do. We know what they don’t need to do. It’s just about playing well now. Russell Westbrook has to get back to what works. KD needs to play well. Jeff Green needs to hit a shot or two. And the role players have to play well. That’s not too much to ask is it? Everyone play really awesome?
This is a first for this team. Their backs are against the wall. They’ve got the Lakers ready to close it out. How will they respond? I think we’ll learn more about this young team tonight – win or lose – than at any other point in the season. That is, until we see what they do in Game 7. See what I did there?
Tip at 8:30 CDT. Go Everyone.
