After being down by as many as 18 points, the Los Angeles Lakers came out victorious over the team with the best record in the Western Conference, the Oklahoma City Thunder. Jodie Meeks set a career-high with 42 points, the most by any Laker this season. After the game, Meeks was quick to talk about the win, rather than his individual performance, but credited Kobe Bryant’s mental approach as something he’s taken on.
Mike D’Antoni explains why he gives a lot of credit to Kent Bazemore for the win. Bazemore talks about releasing the inner tiger when guarding Russell Westbrook and reacts to being dunked on. Plus, Derek Fisher ranks Kobe Bryant as a teammate. Check out our post-game videos below and don’t forget to subscribe to our Lakers Nation YouTube Channel.
