NBA : Thunder thrash tired Lakers 119-90 in Game 1

Russell Westbrook had 27 points, Kevin Durant scored 25 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder blasted the weary Los Angeles Lakers 119-90 on Monday night in the opening game of the Western Conference semifinals.

Remember, just two games ago the Lakers were trailing by as many as 28 points in a blowout loss in Game 6 in Denver agaonst the Nuggets, but this got even worse for the Lakers, who were down by as many as 35 points.

The LA Lakers responded to that loss by beating the Denver Nuggets 96-87 in a thrilling Game 7 on Saturday night - and the Lakers will need another big bounce-back for Game 2 in Oklahoma City on Wednesday night.

Can they respond again?

Oklahoma City: R. Westbrook 27 Pts, 7 Reb, 9 Ast, 2 St
