LOS ANGELES - Veterans of the NBA Playoffs often talk about how each game is a series within itself and how things can change from game to game.  That's the case with OKC and the L.A Clippers. 

In game one the story centered around Clipper guard Chris Paul and his hot shooting.  He hit eight of the nine three pointers he shot in that game.  They won the game but since then Russell Westbrook  has picked up his play.

In the Thunder's game 3 win his 23 points 8 rebounds and 13 assists were a big reason Oklahoma City regained home court and it has Paul calling himself out.

"I gotta keep Russ in front off me," said Paul.  'It's tough. He's all over the place.  He's coming downhill all the time.  I just have to defend him better and keep him and KD off the foul line."

"I'm just taking what the defense is giving me," says Westbrook.  "My job is to run my team.  Stay aggressive but also find a way to get guys involved and get them open."

Getting others involved has proven to be a good recipe for a Thunder win.  In game three Serge Ibaka scored 20 to aid Kevin Durant and Westbrook.  The Thunder also got 14 points from bench players Caron Butler and Reggie Jackson.
