The Los Angeles Lakers hit 41 of 42 free throws and avoided falling behind 0-3 in the Western Conference Semifinals against the Oklahoma City Thunder with a 99-96 victory in Game 3 on Friday.  Given the fact that no team in the history of the NBA has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit, the Lakers were in a must win situation and did exactly that.

The win for L.A. gave the Thunder their first loss in this year’s playoffs.  The Lakers will need to give them three more in order to make an improbable run to the Western Conference Finals. Can they do it?

As of now, the Lakers are definitely in this series and could easily be up two games to one.  Now, Saturday’s Game 4 is pivotal for both teams as either the Thunder will head home with a 3-1 stranglehold or the Lakers will defend home court and return to Oklahoma City confident with the series tied at two.

If the series returns to OKC tied, Los Angeles’ veteran presence will give them an excellent chance at advancing to the conference finals.  OKC is definitely the better team but when the Lakers find a way to win with Kobe Bryant shooting  9 for 25 from the field you’ve got to like their chances.
