NBA Playoffs 2012, Lakers Vs. Thunder: Fans React To Game 3 Win

The Los Angeles Lakers finally managed to pick up a victory in their Western Conference semifinal against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night and now trail 2-1 in the series. The Lakers managed the win in large part due to their spectacular free throw shooting the entire night.

C.A. Clark at Silver Screen and Roll had this to say about the victory:

The Lakers don't win without so many free throws, because OKC made life a living hell for them in the half court set. In that respect, they were most certainly lucky to pull out a victory tonight. But they also played with the determination that shows you they knew their season was on the line, fighting like hell for every last scrap. They will need every ounce of that fight to repeat the feat (winning) tomorrow night and turn this series into something worth watching.

The Lakers will have an opportunity to even the series on Saturday night at Staples Center.
