The Thunder sped past the Lakers, and they couldn't keep up. The Lakers' championship experience surpassed the Thunder, and Oklahoma City couldn't provide a rebuttal. Two years after battling each other in a six-game first-round playoff series, both teams have acquired chess pieces that could set up an epic Western Conference finals contest. In a deal with Cleveland, the Lakers acquired guard Ramon Sessions, whose speed, play-making and youth allow him to move like a knight across the board.

A 21-year-old woman whose naked body was found on a conveyor belt at an Anaheim trash-sorting facility may have spent her last days and nights inside a second-floor motel room on a densely packed stretch of Beach Boulevard. Jarrae Nykkole Estepp had become a regular in the aging commercial district in recent weeks, walking the busy boulevard. Only blocks from Disneyland, the street is defined by strip malls, fast-food restaurants and motels from a bygone era. Detectives said their efforts to retrace Estepp's final steps in the hope of finding her killer have brought them to the neighborhood, long known as a haven for prostitution.

The nonprofit planned to hold the vigil Monday evening.

The Lakers (22-43) visit Oklahoma City (47-17) on Thursday night and a chance to upset twice in a row one of the top teams in the NBA. It took a career-high 42 points from Jodie Meeks, but the Lakers stunned the Thunder, 114-110, on Sunday. Without Jordan Hill (knee), Nick Young (knee), Steve Nash (nerve root irritation) and Kobe Bryant (knee), the Lakers were lucky to get the win Sunday and the Thunder won't take them lightly again. Key matchup Russell Westbrook is one of the league's most dynamic point guards but Meeks did a credible job defending him Sunday.
