Thunder 101, Lakers 96

OKLAHOMA CITY — Did the Lakers give Game 3 away tonight or did the Thunder snatch it from their grasp? It depended who you talked to. “Give them credit because they did their job, but we let the game slip from our hands when we had it under control,” Pau Gasol said. Kobe Bryant had a little different viewpoint. “For the most part we controlled the game,” he said. “(But) against this team (the Thunder) you can’t afford to have those slippages because they’re so explosive. I think they won it. They had a moment where they made big plays.” Game 4 is Saturday night. Expect the Lakers to make adjustments to get the ball inside to Gasol and Andrew Bynum. Don’t expect them to try 31 shots from 3-point range.
