    The 2 games LA won, they just barely won, and that was with KD struggling. Nothing about the 4 games thus far leads me to believe LA can't lose. The only explanation people offer for why LA will win is "experience". I'm not buying it.

    An interesting aside, through 4 games Kobe has taken 1 more shot than Lebron and scored 44 less points.

    Yeah, Kobe pretty much sucks. Maybe one of these days he'll start putting in the extra work that is required to be an elite player. Give him time. He'll get there.

    But, in all seriousness, experience does play a factor. If an unexperienced team outplays an experienced one in all facets of the game, then they will win. But, experienced teams know how to grind out the close games. They understand that it doesn't matter if you get spanked by 38 or if you lose a heartbreaker by 1. It also plays a role when the game is on the line with 2.3 seconds to play in OT. One team is composed because they've been through it over and over again. They can focus on execution rather than the "hype" of the moment. I expect OKC to be all amped up for tonight's game because of the way they won Game 4. But, I think the Lakers are going to be very poised. No need to get all crazy. Just go grind out a home victory and catch your flight to OKC for Game 6.

    But, if OKC can pull it out, I'm sure it will be pandemonium. Kevin Durant is my favorite! The Thunder have the coolest uniforms! I'm moving to Oklahoma City!

    OKC plays a grind it out style to begin with and they are extremely well coached, so I'm not buying. This game tonight will be golden...

    Heh, realistically I don't expect OKC to take it, but stranger things have happened. I guess tonight will be the decider, I was very surprised OKC took both their games. I wouldn't give them a snowball's chance if Kobe was 100%

    Either way..... GO SUNS!
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    Him not being 100% is his own fault and no excuse.

    Kobe on Westbrook, totally changed the whole dynamic of the game.

    I am not a huge NBA fan, but I do believe that every time the Lakers lose, an angel gets its wings.
    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.
