LOS ANGELES (AP) -

Lakers guard Steve Blake and his wife have been 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, were deluged with a range of criticism after the loss Wednesday night.

"I hope your family gets murdered" read one post that Kristen Blake re-tweeted with the comment, "Wow."

Kristen Blake tweeted that she blocked 500 people from viewing her account. She tweeted Friday: "I am deeply grateful & humbled by the outpouring of love, support, & most of all prayers for our family in light of recent events-THANK YOU!"
