The Lakers have had it. They have been at each other’s throats ever since the end of Game 4, a game that was lost right at the death. Kevin Durant just isn’t giving up, and he isn’t going to take his foot off of the gas pedal. That’s a dangerous combination. Kobe Bryant is the only constant that LA has to offer. Either Pau Gasol isn’t taking shots, or Andrew Bynum is mouthing off. Head Coach Mike Brown just doesn’t know what he is doing with all of this either. We just don’t think that the Thunder are going to let the Lakers off of the hook in this one. LA will watch its season come to a close tonight.
