If they Lakers were to lay an egg, and I'm glad it was in game 1. The for whatever reason, the Lakers seem to self implode whenever they are down in a series. The NBA Finals loss to the Celtics was embarrassing, last year's playoff exit had Andrew Bynum being ejected, and there are other instances where the Lakers just didn't bother to show up. And it's always at the end of the series. If the Lakers find themselves down this series, I don't see them clawing their way back into it.
And where the hell was the Lakers bench? Barnes? Blake? Hill? This is where losing Lamar Odom hurts the most. His long body would create matchup problems for the opposing team and even though his offense wasn't always on, his facilitating skills and ability to play 4 of the 5 positions made him a huge asset when a starter needed a few minutes to catch their breath.
The Lakers need to get their act together. Almost every TV analyst has the Thunder winning this series in 6. If the Lakers lay another egg like they did tonight, they won't make it to see a game 6. Later!
