NBA Playoffs 2012, Lakers Vs. Thunder: Fans Stunned By Game 4 Loss

The Los Angeles Lakers hosted the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night and attempted to even up their Western Conference semifinal series. Despite holding a lead for nearly all of the game, the Lakers once again fell in the last couple of minutes and have fallen behind 3-1 in the best-of-seven series. One more loss will send Los Angeles home until next season.

Dexter Fishmore at Silver Screen and Roll attempts to cope with the defeat:

We all just got the wind knocked out of us. The Lakers led Game Four almost the entire way but ran out of gas and blew another late lead, putting them right at the edge of the abyss. It's not over yet... technically... but... well. You don't need me to say it.

Your boxscore is here. Your analysis will come whenever we can scrape ourselves up off the road and figure out what happened.

The Lakers will attempt to stave off their elimination in Game 5, but you have to believe that this loss is a genuine dagger.
