Lakers vs Thunder Game 5 (Second quarter 5:49 ): Lakers 39, Thunder 21

April 27, 2010 |  8:40 pm

Andrew Bynum just threw down a dunk to keep the lead at 18; he leads the Lakers with 11 points. The Thunder called a timeout.

In this quarter Jordan Farmar stole a pass and drove down the court for a tough reverse layup to boost the lead to 18 points for the first time.

Kobe Bryant had a good rest, re-entering the game after 3 1/2 minutes were gone in the quarter with the lead intact and then scored on a dazzling spin move around Kevin Durant in the paint. Bryant is much more active than in Game 4.

Meanwhile, Durant is taking most of his shots from long distance and is cold.
