Lakers vs. Thunder Game 4 (End First quarter): Thunder 29, Lakers 17
The Thunder had its best first quarter of this series as Russell Westbrook hit a jumper just before the quarter ended to give his team a 12-point lead. The Thunder scoring was led Westbrook and Kevin Durant, who each had eight points.
Meanwhile, the Lakers for much of the quarter tried to get the ball inside to their big men, and Pau Gaol leads the team with eight points while center Andrew Bynum has four.
But the Lakers shot the ball poorly from outside. Also, Kobe Bryant played about nine minutes but did not attempt a shot (he had two assists and two turnovers).
