The Oklahoma City Thunder will get one more chance to finish what they started against the Los Angeles Lakers, this time at home.
The teams meet for the second time in three days on Friday in Oklahoma City. On Wednesday in Los Angeles, the Thunder pulled within two points with 1:24 remaining but couldn't finish off a late push.
It was still a positive experience for the Thunder, who were playing their second game in two nights and had the top team in the NBA on the ropes. In the end, the Lakers completed the 112-107 victory for their fifth consecutive win.
