After getting walloped in Oklahoma City on Wednesday, the Clippers are headed home to Los Angeles with the series tied, 1-1.

Russell Westbrook wasn't going to leave the state of Oklahoma down 2-0. The Thunder guard played angry in Game 2, scoring 31 points as Oklahoma City beat the Clippers, 112-101 on Wednesday.

Now, the series turns back to Los Angeles. The Thunder did a great job forcing Chris Paul and Blake Griffin into taking low-quality shots last time out. L.A. shot just 33 percent from three and were dominated on the boards by Oklahoma City, 52-36.

Scott Brooks' offense looked to be back in full force, with Kevin Durant dropping 32 points on 10-of-22 shooting. The Thunder shot 50.6 percent in Game 2, scoring 48 points in the paint. Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka did an excellent job neutralizing DeAndre Jordan on the glass, and the Thunder won the offensive rebounding battle, 15-9.

For Los Angeles, finding room for Paul and Griffin is going to be crucial for Game 3. Paul was still able to log 11 assists in the loss to the Thunder, but he struggled getting to the line. No Clippers starter had more than six free throw attempts in Game 2. The Thunder will need to keep Westbrook and Durant front-and-center in their offense on Friday as the Clippers are sure to adjust.

Game time: 10:30 p.m. ET

Location: Staples Center, Los Angeles


Announcers: Mike Breen, Jeff Van Gundy, J.A. Adande
