Video Preview: Game 3 in OKC

L.A.’s coaching staff knows what it wants to do in Game 3 against Oklahoma City, since the game plan remains pretty similar to that of the first two contests.

Among the primary keys remains limiting the Thunder’s transition opportunities, which L.A. did successfully in Game 2 (OKC had 11 fastbreak points to L.A.’s six) in part by taking care of the basketball.

Futhermore, as assistant coach Jim Cleamons detailed to us on LakersTV after the team’s Thursday morning shootaround at the Ford Center, the Lakers will also look to stick with Kevin Durant around screens, use the crowd’s energy in their own way and focus on continuing to limit the productivity of the Thunder bench.
