Notebook: Lakers 99, Thunder 96


Posted Saturday May 19, 2012 2:36AM

By Dan Arritt, for NBA.com

THE FACTS: With the game on the line, and possibly the entire series, the Lakers won the game at the free-throw line Friday night against the visiting Thunder. They combined to shoot 41-for-42 from the stripe, including 12-for-12 in the final 3 minutes 25 seconds, allowing them to hold on for a 99-96 victory in Game 3 of the Western Conference second-round series at Staples Center. Oklahoma City now leads the series, 2-1.

QUOTABLE: "You're not going to get a better look than a free throw against these guys."
-- Lakers coach Mike Brown

THE STAT: Lakers guard Kobe Bryant did most of the damage from the free-throw stripe, making all 18 of his attempts, including eight in the final 3 1/2 minutes. The 18 free throws without a miss broke a 40-year-old playoff record for the Lakers, previously held by Gail Goodrich (17-for-17). Bryant finished with 36 points, seven rebounds and six assists.

TURNING POINT: The Thunder took a five-point lead with 2:54 remaining after Bryant was stripped of the ball and Russell Westbrook scored on a fast-break dunk on the other end. The Lakers didn't wilt, however. They chipped away at the line and took back the lead on two free throws by Bryant with 1:09 remaining. Kevin Durant gave Oklahoma City its final lead, 94-93, on a jumper coming out of a timeout. The Thunder then had two chances to secure a defensive rebound on the other end, but L.A. retained the ball and Bryant got back to the line, swishing two more for a three-point lead with 33.8 seconds left. The Thunder drew up another play during a timeout, but the Lakers forced Durant to pass off to Serge Ibaka, who missed a jumper from in front of the Lakers bench. Metta World Peace stripped Durant after he grabbed the offensive rebound, was fouled and made both free throws to push the lead back to three with 12.9 seconds left. After the Thunder burned their final timeout, Kendrick Perkins scored an uncontested lay up off the inbounds pass. Oklahoma City sent Bryant back to the free-throw line with 9.8 ticks on the clock and he made both. With no timeouts left to design a play, Durant shot a deep 3-pointer with a couple seconds on the clock, but it went off the rim and the Lakers secured the victory.

HOT: Lakers back-up point guard Steve Blake, who missed a 3-pointer in the closing seconds that would have given the Lakers the lead in Game 2, missed his first shot of the game but nailed his next four, including two 3-pointers, to finish with 12 points off the bench. The nine-year veteran also had a playoff career-high eight rebounds, which was third-highest on the team behind 7-footers Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol. Durant finished with a team-high 31 points on 12-for-23 shooting, scoring 18 points after halftime.

NOT: Thunder super sub James Harden did a masterful job drawing fouls on the Lakers, even getting two on Bryant early in the first quarter, but his shot wasn't falling as it normally does and he finished with 21 points on 4-for-13 from the field. Part of the problem the Thunder had throughout the game was their lack of ball movement. They finished with 33 field goals but only 13 assists. As for the Lakers, Bynum struggled against Perkins for much of the night, finishing with 15 points on 2-for-13 shooting. He did grab 11 rebounds, blocked three shots and was 11-for-12 from the line. If the Lakers had lost this game, they would have looked at their 15 turnovers that led to 22 points by the Thunder.

GOOD MOVE: Gasol was struggling early in the third period, committing two turnovers and failing to secure another pass from Ramon Sessions. That lull helped the Thunder take their biggest lead of the game, 66-59, with 4:09 left in the quarter. Brown then inserted Jordan Hill for Gasol and that seemed to settle L.A. down long enough to pull within a point heading into the fourth. Gasol returned much more focused in the final quarter and contributed four points, five rebounds, a blocked shot and no turnovers.

BAD MOVE: With the Thunder trailing by a point in the closing seconds and Westbrook, Durant and Harden all on the floor, the ball somehow ended up in the hands of their fourth option, Ibaka, who clanked his baseline shot.

QUOTABLE II: "We know that if we don't come and play, things are going to get ugly like they were in the first game. So, after that embarrassment, we just kind of let it up, just playing with a lot more energy and force."
-- Bynum

NOTABLE: The 41-for-42 performance from the free-throw line was the second-best in NBA playoff history with a minimum of 30 attempts. The Mavericks shot 49-for-50 against the Spurs in 2003. ... Staples Center is in the middle of hosting four NBA playoff games and two NHL playoff games between Thursday and Sunday night.

UP NEXT: Game 4 vs. the Thunder, Saturday night in Los Angeles, 10:30 p.m. ET.
