Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Blake and his wife received threats on Twitter after Blake missed a possible game-winning three-pointer against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.

One tweet from an angry fan said, "I hope your family gets murdered." Blake's wife re-tweeted it with the comment, "Wow."

There were reports that Kobe Bryant had tweeted on half of Blake, but the Lakers confirmed that Bryant does not have a Twitter account.

Kristen Blake tweeted that she blocked 500 people from viewing her account, and tweeted: "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!"
