Then Thursday’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers happened, where they were historically bad.
After a competitive first quarter between the two teams, the Clippers completely broke the game open in the second quarter, leading 73-40 at half time.
The final score? 142-94.
It was the Clippers’ biggest margin of victory ever, and the most lopsided loss in Lakers’ history. The Lakers have now lost the last two games against the Clippers by a combined score of 84 points.
