The Lakers news cycle took a horrific turn tonight, with the LA Lakers suffering an historic drubbing at the hands of their co-tenants at the Staples Center.
The Los Angeles Clippers absolutely dismantled the Los Angeles Lakers by the count of 142-94 on Thursday, marking the worst margin of defeat in LA Lakers history.
After the game, Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni bluntly assessed the manner which Blake Griffin and company beat up on a hapless LA Lakers defense--
D'Antoni: "They smelled blood in the water and they killed us."

The "blood in the water" was also noticed by Lakers fans in the Staples Center, as a good chunk of the Laker faithful made their way toward the exits at halftime with the LA Clippers leading 72-40.
The 142 points scored by the Clippers is the most they have ever scored against the Los Angeles Lakers. It is also the most points that the Clippers have ever scored in a "road" game, as the game was technically a Lakers home game.
Kendall Marshall was the only reason why the Lakers didn't lose by over a half-century's worth of points, hitting a 3-pointer with 15 seconds remaining to cut the gargantuan lead to a mere 48.
