“I knew after what happened in Oklahoma City, the Lakers would come out and really compete,” rookie coach Billy Donovan said. “I thought Kevin could have taken a lot more shots tonight, but he was really insistent on doing a great job of finding people, setting people up and making the game easy.”

Durant added 21 points for the Thunder in a rematch of their game at Oklahoma City, when they trounced the Lakers 118-78 with runs of 18-0 and 17-2. The Thunder once again had a big run in them as they came out on a 22-0 run to start the third quarter.

“It was like the starting gates opened up and the horses ran out,” Bryant said. “That third quarter, they just blitzed us, man. They got ahead with their athleticism and their speed and their length, and we we couldn’t get the game under control.”
