2012 NBA Playoffs: Lakers Vs. Thunder Game 4: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder won't have to wait long to get a second chance in Los Angeles. Game 4 of the Lakers and Thunder is scheduled for Saturday night, just one day after Los Angeles' 99-96 Game 3 victory, which cut Oklahoma City's series lead down to 2-1.

If the Thunder are to take a commanding 3-1 series victory back to Oklahoma with them, they'll need to do a better job of shutting down all-world superstar Kobe Bryant. Bryant scored 36 points and grabbed seven rebounds while dishing out six assists in Los Angeles' win on Friday night.

Oklahoma City, despite the loss on Friday, still remains in good position. At worst, they'll head back home with the series tied at two games a piece. The Thunder still stand a good chance of winning on Saturday, though, and will have to hope that the Lakers aren't as good as hitting free throws on Saturday as they were on Friday, when Los Angeles connected on 41-of-42 free throws.

Tip-off is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. CT, 7:30 p.m. locally in Los Angeles. Televised coverage can be found on TNT.
