Kendrick Perkins Injury Update: Oklahoma City Thunder Center Says He Is 'Not Even Close To 80 Percent'

If what Kendrick Perkins says is true, the Los Angeles Lakers are all the more doomed against the younger, faster and more athletic Oklahoma City Thunder.

Perkins, an enforcer for the Thunder and one of the key players least associated with his athleticism, says he's not even 80 percent in this series against the Lakers, yet Oklahoma City still holds a 2-0 series lead having won those two games in totally different fashions.

With Perkins hobbled, one would think the Lakers would at least be able to exploit this weakness in the Thunder, but other mismatches have proved to be too much for them to handle so far.
