It Ain't the Thunder's Night

Dang. The Oklahoma City Thunder lost:
The Los Angeles Lakers are moving on — battered and bruised, but not beaten.

Pau Gasol putback a missed jumper by Kobe Bryant with a half-second left and the defending champion Lakers survived a late comeback effort by Oklahoma City and eliminated the Thunder 95-94 in Game 6 of the first-round playoff series on Friday night.

“This is the playoffs. This is what it’s about,” Los Angeles coach Phil Jackson said. “When you have teams that have won 50 games in the course of a season like this Thunder team did, they have a sense of pride about them. They can play a game that’s obviously not far off of what our mark is or was this season.

Well, it was fun while it lasted. And for a team that's only be in existence two years, not a bad performance at all. Way to go, Thunder.
