The Oklahoma City Thunder got out quickly against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game One of the Western Conference Semifinal.

Oklahoma City looked unstoppable from the perimeter and in the passing lanes on their way to a breezy 119-90 blowout victory. Should they continue to achieve at that pace, there is no collection of players that can hope to derail them from their prize: the NBA Championship.

Kobe Bryant and the Lakers will not go quietly, and are expecting a much better showing in Game Two. They are a championship team, and championship teams don't roll over and make room for challengers.

The Thunder looked overwhelming to the Lakers in Game One, but one LA upset shifts the pendulum of momentum fully in the Lakers' favor as they head to Los Angeles for Friday night's Game Three. 

Will the Lakers grit out a road win in a hostile arena, or will OKC put their stranglehold on the aging two-time champions?
