We broke down some of the more intriguing numbers from LAL’s 114-110 win against OKC:
Points for Jodie Meeks – a career high – on 11 of 18 field goals, 6 of 11 three-pointers and 14 of 14 free throws. Meeks also forced Russell Westbrook to a 7 for 23 shooting night and eight turnovers on the defensive end. Below is a shot chart of Meeks’ efficiency from the floor, courtesy of NBA.com/stats.
Offensive rebounds for Oklahoma City compared to just one for the Lakers. The Thunder held a 59-36 edge on the glass and attempted 19 more field goals than the Lakers, but shot just 42.0 percent from the floor.
Assists for Ryan Kelly, a career high. Following his 24-point, 11-rebound performance at Denver, Kelly was reinserted into the starting lineup, and scored 12 points and grabbed five rebounds.
Free throws missed by Kevin Durant (7 for 11) and a total of seven missed for Oklahoma City. The Thunder came into the game ranked second in the NBA in free-throw percentage (80.5), but made just 14 of 21 overall (66.7 percent).
Field goals for Kent Bazemore in the final two minutes of regulation to help stave off Oklahoma City’s late rally. With Kelly starting at the four and Wesley Johnson at the three, Bazemore came off the bench and recorded 11 points and seven rebounds off the bench in 20 minutes.
