Oklahoma City, OK (Sports Network) - By the time the "Beat LA!" chants picked up in the fourth quarter Monday night, the Oklahoma City Thunder had all but accomplished what fans at Chesapeake Energy Arena were urging them to do.

The only matter in question was the final margin.

The Thunder, four years after re-locating to the Oklahoma capital, are headed to the Western Conference Finals after knocking off Kobe Bryant's Lakers.

Russell Westbrook scored 28 points, Kevin Durant had 25 and the Thunder beat the Lakers 106-90 in Game 5 of the semifinals.

The Thunder advanced to face the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs, who swept the Jazz and Clippers in the first two rounds and have won 18 games in a row.
