Oklahoma City won Game 2 in a thrilling fashion. I was more excited to watch the Lakers/Thunder game, particularly because I wanted to see the Thunder beat the Lakers tonight if they could. I also wanted to see Kevin Durant get a chance at defending Kobe Bryant, because Kobe can be easy to defend if you’re Durant. K.D. is a lanky basketball defender and his long skinny arms can bother Bryant on the defensive end. Durant got to defend Bryant in the last four minutes of the fourth quarter. This was the matchup I wanted to see. The Thunder played stellar defense on Kobe Bryant and they did it behind Kevin Durant, James Harden, and Russell Westbrook and a Thunder defense that made Kobe Bryant miss shots and made other Lakers players take shots. Kobe Bryant didn’t take the Lakers’ last shot, he was well defended, and Steve Blake had to step up to take the game-winning three-pointer. OKC wins Game 2 77-75. The Boston Celtics roll to a 107-91 victory over Philadelphia in Game 3. The C’s aren’t ready to give up their NBA title dreams, and this playoff season may be the Celtics’ last chance together considering the age of Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett.
