(Good day Thunders. Thank you for your support of Daily Thunder. Carpe diem.)
Games 3, 4 and 6 the Laker series get all the love from Thunder fans. They were great games, but those are the ones we seem to remember. Forgotten is how good Game 2 was. And my favorite thing about Game 2 was how the Thunder didn’t play that well, but just played harder than the Lakers. The most evident example was how OKC finished with 17 – yes, 17 – blocked shots. I remember being so impressed with how these guys stood toe-to-toe with the Lakers and never showed any fear. I honestly think Game 2 was when it all clicked that the Thunder really had a chance.
