One of the more critical moments in Tuesday's Game 2 win came with two minutes to play in the fourth and the Lakers up a pair.

The Thunder went to a bread-and-butter play, but weren't able to get a shot off. Instead, Pau Gasol drew a charge on Kevin Durant. The call received a lot of attention, but the sequence itself was a great combination of defensive effort and awareness from the Lakers.

Sebastian Pruiti of NBAPlaybook.com has a great breakdown of the play, well worth a look.
