Lakers3_300 You can pretty much count this one as over. The Lakers put together a command performance. And it was the big men, Pau Gasaol and Andrew Bynum, who were leading the way. In fact, Kobe Bryant went to the bench a little early not because he needed to but because he could.

The fired up Staples Center crowd now only had one thing on their mind -- free tacos for the Lakers holding the Thunder under 100 points.
