Kobe, Lakers pushed to the brink by Durant’sheroics


NBA scoring champion Kevin Durant proved once again that he has ice running through his veins, hitting a game-tying three-pointer in the face of Metta World Peace to help lead his Thunder over the Lakers in Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals, 103-100.

The victory gives Oklahoma City a 3-1 advantage over Los Angeles with the game heading back to the Ford Center on Monday.

The Twitterverse is generally in agreement – the Lakers are done.

Lakers just can’t catch their breath, or Thunder, at finish http://t.co/qdwyfsi2

As great as Kobe was tonight, he has to take some blame for the Lakers going away from what gave them that lead in the 1st place.

Good morning, unless you are in L.A., where the proper word is mourning. Your Sunday playoff roundup: http://t.co/DcAyVUCe

But there’s always a few hopefuls in the pack.

If you were to ask what franchise would you pick to come back from a 3-1 deficit? Everyone picks the Lakers, so why not this year? <img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.2.1/72×72/1f642.png&quot; alt="
