The Oklahoma City Thunder knows that if they win game 3, then the series will practically be over. Their confidence level has risen as they have proven that they can beat the Lakers in their own style of play. We have to admit that it was all Lakers for 46 minutes during Game 2. The Thunder were looking out of sync except for the final 2 minutes of the game, and that was all they needed. You cannot expect the Thunder to play bad ball again the next time around as they will already make adjustments. Also, you cannot hold down Westbrook and Harden for two consecutive games. Expect Kobe to have a monster game but also expect Westbrook and Harden to bounce back. Also, due to the schedule, the Lakers, as old as they are, haven't had enough rest which benefits the young and energetic Thunder. Thunder win this in a close game.
