Video: Russell Westbrook’s insane, impossible scoop bank shot

May 22, 2012, 12:26 AM EDT

One shot does not decide a game. There are always circumstances, things that might have gone differently.

But one shot can spark a run and change the feeling of a game. All Game 5 Monday night the Lakers hung close. They would not go away. Kobe Bryant dropped 42. But you just had the feeling at some point the Thunder would go on a run and pull away.

Then Russell Westbrook happened. And after that shot, you knew the Thunder would advance.

      I certainly hope that your Mike Brown prediction comes true.

      I’m sure everyone is gonna jump at trading for Gasol’s $19 Mil over the next 2 years. I hear the new CBA made the luxury tax better for teams going drastically over. (sarcasm)

        oh..there will be several teams trying to get gasol regardless of price tag. the “demand outweighs the supply”.

      Mike Brown should be fired because he was given a roster that was incapable of truly coming out of the west? Doubtful. Aging team who’s best young player doesn’t wanna play half the time. Phil Jackson got swept in the second round last year.

      If Magic never said anything, no one else would have. That is ridiculous to fire a guy his first year with a team because they didn’t get past the 2nd round. Not his fault, check with the GM.

    Kobe couldn’t do that.

    Perhaps the Lakers err Buss Junior will be more rational than Dad. But someone has to take the fall for this collapse for the second consecutive year. Mike Brown would be the lowest hanging fruit to choose from then couple that with a nice off-season acquisition and suddenly the fans would once again have faith in the teams ability to make it back to Finals -Land.
