The Oklahoma City Thunder are prepared for their second round series against the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday night. After their game four victory over the Dallas Mavericks on May 5th, the Thunder have had over a week to prepare for its round two opponent.
Story lines are abundant in this second round series, including Metta World Peace first game against the Thunder since his suspension for elbowing James Harden in late April. Eyes will be set on both of these players when they are on the court at the same time. Derek Fisher will also be facing his former team for the first time in a playoff environment as a member of the Thunder. And last but not least, two of the NBA's best scorers, Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant will be going head to head against each other.
Game time/date: 9:30 p.m. PT / Monday, May 14th
Location: Chesapeake Energy Arena, Oklahoma, OK
TV: TNT (National)
