The Los Angeles Lakers finally managed a win in their Western Conference semifinal series against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night, coming from behind and taking advantage of OKC mistakes to cut the Thunder lead in the best-of-seven series to 2-1.
The Lakers still have an uphill climb ahead of them, facing a much younger, much fresher and very dangerous team on back-to-back days as they head into Game 4 on Saturday. The Lakers had been stretched to their limits in their series against the Denver Nuggets and they need to hope that they can win more games to keep their season alive.
Game 4 on Saturday tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET and will be televised nationally on TNT as Los Angeles tries to even up the series.
