There is no sugar coating it.
There is no silver lining.
Sometimes the numbers lie, but they paint a very clear picture of the worst loss New Orleans has suffered since their Boston Massacre; a 140-105 loss to the Celtics back on Jan. 11.
Los Angeles made nine of their team-record 25 three-pointers in the first quarter as they raced out to a 12-point lead.
The Clippers got seven more in the second quarter, effectively ending the game by halftime.
