There were only two games last night in the Western Conference. The "big one" was the Oklahoma City Thunder playing at the Los Angeles Lakers. The second one was the New Orleans Hornets at the Portland Trailblazers. In both cases the "better" team came away with the victory.

It was really a "meh" night for both games. So no large breakdown.
