All five Clippers starters are in double digits. They're shooting 60.6 percent as a team. They're up by 45 points.
Lakers management knows this isn't a good team but they can't be losing to the Clippers by 46 points bad. That can't happen.
Good thing ESPN didn't include this game as part of Rivalry Week.
Clippers 95, Lakers 49 with 5:30 left in the 3rd and for the first time I'm not sure about Mike D'Antoni's job security.
Hasnt matter who started -- Farmar or Marshall -- both having poor games.

Griffin upset about being hit in face, whips the ball behind him and is hit with a technical. Oops
I guess we can now remind you that the worst loss in Lakers history was by 46 points.
Other than Gasol, the Lakers are having trouble creating a single good look on offense. Aside from Pau, they're 10 of 37.
And to think Ryan Kelly, Kendall Marshall left Duke-Carolina for this...
In the Jan. 10 loss to the Clippers by 36 points, the biggest hole was 43. Lakers down by 42 with 7:30 left in the third.
I need this game to stay close enough for Griffin to post meaningful fantasy numbers for the next 10 minutes or so. BK
Although Clips won by 36 in Jan, largest victory margin ever in series is Lakers by 46 over San Diego Clippers in 1979. ... LAC 88, LAL 48.

Clippers have stretched their lead to 40 points. Count em....
Not sure why Xavier Henry isn't playing more after his energetic burst in first half.
So the Lakers were down 2 when I started helping the kids get to bed. Came back, and they were down 33. Blame my children. BK

Shoes need to be thrown in the Lakers' locker room.

The Lakers turn the ball over on the inbounds pass to open the second half. You see something new every damn game.
Second half begins and there’s no beer. That is the true tragedy tonight.
As if things couldn't get any worse, the Lakers would have to show Steve Nash on the scoreboard.
Mike D'Antoni should start the Lakers band to begin the second half.
Well, at least TNT can use that entire second quarter for Shaqtin' a Fool.
The real season likely won’t happen tonight. It’s OK. There’s always tomorrow.

It's 33-8 Clippers this quarter. LAL have had no energy in the 2nd Q, let alone execution.
How long ago does opening night feel?
I’d like to see a dunk contest between Kent Bazemore and Blake Griffin right now.
Blake Griffin and Kent Bazemore agree to meet at Bottle Rock after game.
Griffin fouled Bazemore, then had something to say about it to Bazemore at mid court. Looked like Bazemore ignored him.
Griffin and Bazemore jawing at each other. Yes!
LAL are 1 for 12 from the field in this 2nd Q. No rhythm to the offense against what's been an energetic LAC defense.

Robert Sacre fades away on his shot as Darren Collison is guarding him. Where’s Christopher Zane Kaman?
