Lakers Vs. Thunder, NBA On ABC: Starting Lineups

There is an old saying that the third time is the charm, and the Los Angeles Lakers certainly hope that is true on Sunday afternoon at Staples Center. Kobe Bryant and the Lakers welcome Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and the Oklahoma City Thunder to town, looking for their first win in three tries against the Thunder this season.

Durant scored 33 points to lead the Thunder to a 100-85 win in Oklahoma City on February 23, then Westbrook returned home to Los Angeles to score 36 points in a 102-93 win at Staples Center on March 29.
