Lakers Rout Thunder, Adam Morrison gets in
Perhaps there is no greater indicator that your team is getting killed by the Lakers than when Adam Morrison gets in. Statistically, Morrison is one of the less impressive players in NBA over the last ten years. (For example, 12 blocks in 163 career games for someone who is 6'8" almost requires trying not to play defense and block shots.)
Oddly enough, Game 5 was the second game of the series that Morrison got in. He played in game 4 when the Thunder were routing the Lakers. After playing just 41 games in the last two seasons, there is a lesson to learn from when the 2006 number 3 overall pick gets on the court--things are either going really bad or really well for one team in the NBA.
