Update: The Lakers barely got by the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Nov. 3, winning 101-98 in overtime. That had to get the Lakers' attention, right? "I hope so," guard Derek Fisher said. "But for some reason, you never seem to know." The Thunder, the second-youngest team in the NBA with an average age of 25, has several key players the Lakers will have to watch. Foremost among them is Kevin Durant, fifth in the NBA in scoring (27.7 points per game), and former UCLA guard Russell Westbrook, who is eighth in the league in assists (7.2).
