The Los Angeles Lakers are definitely playing a lot more physical in game two of the second round series of the 2012 NBA playoffs against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Such a response is expected given that they lost game one by nearly 30 points. The team is behind at halftime and their performance so far has some analysts commenting on their playing style tonight.
Charles Barkley: Lakers are just trying to beat the hell out of these guys. That's the difference in the game tonight.— MikeSherman (@MikeSherman) May 17, 2012
For Metta World Peace, such a description is nothing new and he's continued to enhance his reputation tonight against the Thunder. Yet the officiating crew is also making their presence known even more than the Lakers with their constant whistles. Here's hoping no one gets hurt and that the refs let them play.
