Predictions for Lakers-Thunder series

Mark Heisler, L.A. Times NBA columnist

Prediction: Lakers in five.

Outlook: If they can't take this team out in six, I don't like their chances of getting out of the West.

Mike Bresnahan, L.A. Times Lakers reporter

Prediction: Lakers in six.

Outlook:You would think that the top-seeded team in the West would be done in four or five with No. 8. But I haven't seen enough consistency from the Lakers in the last six or seven weeks to say anything less than six games.

Broderick Turner, L.A. Times Lakers reporter

Prediction: Lakers in six.

Outlook: I think the Lakers have too much experience against an inexperienced young team like Oklahoma City. But the Thunder has just enough athletes to get two wins.

Mark Medina, L.A. Times Lakers blogger

Prediction: Lakers in five.

Outlook: The Lakers' experience will be too much for the inexperienced Thunder. Oklahoma City's youth and speed may make for some tight contests, but the Thunder is only 12-15 in games decided by five points or fewer.
