Lakers Nation Podcast: Breaking Down Win Over Thunder, Nick Young’s Game-winner
Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

The Lakers Nation Podcast is back to break down the Los Angeles Lakers’ thrilling 111-109 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. In the middle of a brutal six-game stretch against some of the top teams in the NBA, the Lakers badly needed the win, which keeps them with a winning record of eight wins and seven losses.

Guard Nick Young was able to play the hero, knocking in a go-ahead three with just five seconds left in the game to preserve a win that looked unlikely following a fourth-quarter outburst from Russell Westbrook. We take a look at Young’s play, as well as how injuries to both D’Angelo Russell and Julius Randle impacted the team.

Finally, we discuss the Lakers’ 2017 NBA Draft pick, and how their surprisingly successful start to the 2016-2017 NBA season impacts their chances of hanging onto their top-three protected first round selection.

All that and more in this episode of the LN Podcast:
