The Lakers are in dire straits against the Thunder, as they've fallen into an 0-2 hole after a 77-75 loss on Wednesday night. Los Angeles actually had a pretty good chance to win late -- if Steve Blake's open 3-pointer had been an inch or two shorter, we might be talking about how the Lakers' savvy veterans managed to bring some dignity to a series that looked like it was devolving into farce. Instead, the Thunder are in command, and things are getting desperate for the Lakers.
Did the Lakers lose it?
The Thunder were down by seven with two minutes remaining in Game 2, but the Lakers were unable to stop their comeback.
Kobe Bryant is clearly the Lakers' best player, but did you take issue with Metta World Peace deciding to give the last shot to the open man?
Game 3 winners?
If there's any place in which the Lakers can turn this series around, it's their home court, the Staples Center -- they're 26-7 at home this season.
