Metta World Peace, Russell Westbrook Get Into Scuffle During Game 3 of Lakers-Thunder Playoff Series (Video)

Metta World Peace is at it again. The Lakers forward got into a brief scuffle with another Thunder player during Friday night's Game 3, even if this incident wasn't quite as brutal as the elbow he delivered to James Harden a few weeks ago. World Peace and Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook both chased after a loose ball during the second quarter of Friday's game. The...

Durant shows no fear, conquers Kobe, Lakers

OKLAHOMA CITY Thunder forward Kevin Durant had been over-passing all night, frustratingly so, giving the ball up on much easier shots than this obstacle course that lay ahead of him now. So pass seemed like a good guess. Instead, KD drove. He drove without fear of what if, without doubt of himself, without the burden of previous failures which do exist. It ended with him floating...

Metta World Peace knees Russell Westbrook (Video)

Last night, the Los Angeles Lakers stayed alive in their series with the Oklahoma City Thunder by winning game three by the score of 99-96 as the series shifted to the City of Angels. In the second quarter of the game, Lakers forward Metta World Peace had another incident with a Thunder player as he attempted to get a loose ball from OKC guard Russell Westbrook. Keep a...

Westbrook, World Peace tangled in scrum

The Western Conference semifinals matchup between the Lakers and Oklahoma City traveled to Los Angeles for Game 3 and of course it wouldn’t be a game at the Staples Center without Metta World Peace getting physical. To be fair, Russell Westbrook overreacted or if you prefer to use the words “spazzed out” over the incident. Both were [...]

Lakers' defensive shift keeps Westbrook in check

Even though Kevin Durant was the Oklahoma City Thunder player who finished second in the NBA MVP voting, it was Russell Westbrook who really crushed the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals. So the Lakers came back in Game 2 Wednesday night with a new plan against Westbrook: No more Kobe Bryant trying to stay in front of Westbrook and fight solo through...

Durant dunks on Hill : Westbrook and World Peace shuffle

Although the Los Angeles Lakers won game 3 99-96 Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant had the play of the night. Late in the 2nd quarter Kendrick Perkins set a pick for Durant and the three point line and Durant did the rest. Durant drove the middle of the lane and threw and dunk down on the Lakers Jordan Hill. Durant threw down a monster dunk with his right hand...

Kevin Durant Appears To Be Ready To Take The Next Step

If the Lakers had any hope at this series it dissapeared last night with this shot. Maybe if Mike Brown wasn’t the Coach then I would have some faith that Kobe could go all Kobe, but until The Black Mamba officially becomes the player-coach – the Lakers are going to find themselves going through stretches like they did in the end of the 4th quarter. Can anyone explain to me...

Lakers fight back to overtake Thunder

LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Lakers had the fight to the finish Friday night in Game 3 of their NBA playoff series against Oklahoma City that they lacked in Game 2. The Lakers rallied from a five-point deficit in the final minutes and earned a 99-96 victory over the Thunder, avoiding the deadly 3-0 series deficit. Kobe Bryant scored 36 points, hitting all 18 of his free throw...

Depth is important weapon for Thunder

The stars are going to be stars in the Thunder-Lakers series. Oklahoma City fields All-Stars in Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, while Los Angeles suits up Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. The difference in the Western Conference semifinals could end up being the ancillary pieces. The rotation for Thunder coach Scott Brooks is legitimately 10 deep and he doesn't...

OKC depth important weapon against Lakers

The stars are going to be stars in the Thunder-Lakers series. Oklahoma City fields All-Stars in Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, while Los Angeles suits up Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum.

The Oklahoma City Thunder outlasted the Lakers 77-75 in a hard-fought, defensive battle in Game 2 on Wednesday night inside Chesapeake Energy Arena.
