Western Conf Semifinals: Los Angeles Clippers at Oklahoma City Thunder

Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Los Angeles didn't just beat the Thunder in Game 1, they thrashed them. The Clippers led by 20+ points much of the game, and won by 17, with their starters resting most of the final quarter. It would seem like Oklahoma City needs to make some serious adjustments, but honestly the Clippers just played a lights out game. Paul had 32 points with eight 3-pointers, and shot 85% from the floor. The entire team shot better then 50% from 3-point range and 55% from the field. When teams shoot like that, they aren't going to lose, so the Thunder just need to tighten up the defense a bit, and they should be fine.
