2012 NBA Playoffs: Thunder Vs. Lakers Game 5: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Los Angeles Lakers were just minutes from evening up their Western Conference semifinal series against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night. Instead, they fell apart at the finish line and are now just one loss away from being ushered out of the postseason by a younger, deeper and hungrier team.

The series heads back to Oklahoma City on Monday night and the Lakers will try to keep their playoffs alive for at least one more game. The Thunder, of course, will be trying to close things out in front of their home crowd in order to advance to the Western Conference final.

Monday's Game 5 will tip off at 6:30 p.m. PT and will be televised nationally on TNT.
