Twitter threats against Lakers' Blake

Lakers guard Steve Blake and his wife are being attacked online since he missed a possible game-winning 3-pointer against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 2 of their Western Conference semifinal.

The Twitter accounts of Blake and his wife, Kristen, have been deluged with a range of criticism after the loss Wednesday night.

One post reads "I hope your family gets murdered."

Teammate Kobe Bryant took to Twitter early today to chastise those attacking the Blakes. The veteran All-Star says that Lakers fans who said bad things to Blake and his wife on twitter should be ashamed of themselves.

Bryant says Blake was a big reason the Lakers beat the Nuggets in the first round.
