After the New Orleans Hornets took game one from the Lakers in Los Angeles, and the Memphis Grizzlies did the same from the Spurs in San Antonio, most of the critics seemed dumbfounded. The Spurs being a dominate force all season, and the Lakers, always stepping up big in the playoffs, to have both teams lose at home in their first games was quite a surprise.

However, both teams were back to their expected ways in their Wednesday games. The Lakers stifled most of the offensive attacks from Chris Paul. While San Antonio found the balanced attack that had eluded them in their first game against the Grizzlies.

In Oklahoma City, a sea of blue shirts filled the arena in support of the Thunder. Oklahoma City was led by 23 points from Kevin Durant and 21 from Russell Westbrook, and now lead the Denver Nuggets 2-0 in the series.

Westbrook, along with the Lakers Lamar Odom, who just received 6th Man of the Year honors, were spotted in the upcoming 2011 version of the Nike Zoom Hyperfuse.
