Jeremy Lin went through five defenders for the layup as Lakers have their biggest lead at 13.
This will be the Clippers' biggest win ever at Madison Square Garden. The previous biggest was 17 points (105-86) on March 5, 1996.
Jazz broadcasters recently accused Flip Saunders of tanking, so he calls a timeout 45 seconds into the third.
Minnesota opened the half going underneath a screen and giving Lin a wide open 3. Wolves took an early time out, LAL up 9.
Jeremy Lin starts the second half with a three as Lakers lead by nine now.
Austin Rivers missed a shot, now nine of 10.
Austin Rivers is leading the Clippers with 21 points on 9 for 9 shooting...
Austin Rivers has scored 21 points and made all nine shots.
LAL's lead is 49-43 at halftime, behind some balanced scoring: 6 Lakers have at least 5 points. Lin had 5 assists as the team shot 49%.
Jeremy Lin and Ed Davis have more chemistry than _______________.
Clippers will take a 90-54 lead into the fourth quarter over the Knicks.
Chris Paul corner three-pointer puts Clippers up 85-46. My goodness.
Jordan Clarkson's jumper gives the Lakers a three-point lead with under five minutes remaining in the first half.
Minnesota's back within a point after getting B2B 3's, trimming what was a 9-point LAL lead to 36-35 at the 5 min. mark of the 2nd Q.
We just witnessed Canadian-on-Canadian crime as Andrew Wiggins dunks on (or by) Robert Sacre.
Wow, the Clippers have a 39-point lead over the Knicks, 82-43, with 4:52 left in the 3rd.
Technical foul on DeAndre Jordan.

LAL closed the 1st Q on a 16-4 run to take a 24-15 lead into the 2nd Q. Meanwhile, likely Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins has yet to rest.
Apparently they sell a lot of posters inside MSG after Blake Griffin just put Lou Amundson on one.
Clippers or Lakers? Which one do I watch?
Jordan Clarkson had three blocks last night and just recorded his first of the game. Reminds me of Jalen Rose -- at least on Twitter.
Clarkson has stepped up his interior D the last few games, with 3 blocks last night and an early swat of a driving LaVine tonight.
I actually wanted to see Kevin Garnett play in a T-Wolves uniform tonight, but Jordan Clarkson vs. Andrew Wiggins/Zach LaVine works, too.
A guy just proposed and his fiance said yes. There was finally a happy ending at MSG this season.
The world's most famous arena also has its most inedible ice...next to the media food room. http://t.co/x96ZwLXJCN
A strong block from Tarik Black, recovering on screen/roll action to get back to Gorgui Dieng, continued the rookie's strong start.
Timberwolves only have eight active players, so tonight will be difficult.
Halftime: Clippers 63, Knicks 33
LAL hold a 12-11 lead over Minnesota at the 5:57 mark into the first time out, w/Tarik Black scoring 2 buckets w/his 2 boards.
Midway through 1, Lakers lead 12-11 as Tarik Black has four points.
Andrew Wiggins almost destroyed Tarik Black there, but was fouled. Also, they are former teammates.
Wes Johnson scores his first basket and this is officially his revenge game.
Clippers lead Knicks, 63-33, at halftime.
Jordan Clarkson with the dunk and I'd like him to go head-to-head in a dunk contest with Zach LaVine instead.
The Lakers don't expect to use Jordan Hill or Carlos Boozer again tonight (DNP-CD's last night), but could in emergency situations.
DeAndre Jordan's ferocious one-handed dunk on Jason Smith shown multiple times on the replay board at MSG.
Halftime: Clippers 63, Knicks 33. The Clippers are literally laughing as they walk off the court.
We're underway in Minnesota, where rookie Zach LaVine opens the scoring w/a 3. Minnesota has 8 available healthy bodies, LAL essentially 9.
"Adam Levine" scores the first basket as Timberwolves take a commanding 3-0 lead early in the first quarter.
Clippers 61, Knicks 31 with 59.6 seconds to go in the second quarter. Yes, they still have to play the second half.
Clippers now up 61-31. Bring out your dead.
I guess maybe that's where Jim Dolan keeps the bodies buried?
I took a photo of an ice machine next to the media food room with a sign reading "Ice Not for Human Consumption" but was told to delete it.
They're showing celebrities on the scoreboard at MSG during timeouts, which qualifies as highlights here.
They're showing more Clippers replays than Knicks ones at MSG, though there haven't been many of latter with Clippers up 57-29.
Clippers 57, Knicks 29 with 2:51 left in the 2nd quarter. Timeout New York.
USC's "disassociation" from Reggie Bush was permanent. Even Chris Webber's had an expiration date. It would be nice if one existed for Bush.
Battle of the ponytails between Spencer Hawes and Lou Amundson.
The only thing that would really qualify as a victory for Clippers at this point would be resting starters for entire fourth quarter.
It'll be interesting to see what action USC takes against the NCAA. It's too late to get back lost scholarships and postseason bans.
Clippers lead Knicks, 28-17, after end of first quarter at MSG.
MSG crowd seems to be thoroughly enjoying the Clippers.
Inbounding violation on the Clippers.
I stand corrected. Olivia Wilde is a legit celebrity.
DeAndre Jordan is the only one who currently has a speaking role tomorrow for filming but Austin Rivers said he might improvise something.
And frankly, Ralph Sampson shouldn't count since he's still in basketball. Might as well put whole Clippers roster.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is filming some scenes tonight at the Clips-Knicks game too. Will Arnett, Michael Bay & Andrew Forn are here.
The producer and director of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are here at MSG, though, for what that's worth. Plus Miss USA Nia Sanchez.
Knicks provided a list of celebrities at Clippers game. I think I recognize about two of them: Jason Sudeikis (sort of) and Ralph Sampson.
Flip said the Wolves -who drafted Ray Allen, traded him for Marbury in '96- considered taking Kobe but weren't sure about 2 high schoolers.
Mike Woodson met with the media before the game and said he "absolutely" wants to be a head coach again.
Asked Flip Saunders about the careers of Kevin Garnett and Kobe: said the biggest similarity was their constant + intense competitiveness.
Expect the Wolves to be without K. Martin (who's questionable) in addition to the guys we knew were out (Rubio, Pekovic, KG, Neal, etc).
No Hill or Boozer again tonight. They'll be on the bench in case of emergency, Lakers assistant Paul Pressey said.
Mike Woodson: "I'm happy as hell to be in L.A. with Doc." http://t.co/GM4QHQ0rqf
DeAndre Jordan, Matt Barnes, J.J. Redick, Austin Rivers & Spencer Hawes will be filming a scene for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 tomorrow.
Nate Robinson said 76ers and Celtics games are possibilities to play.
Nate Robinson said he has a bone bruise in his left knee but expects to play against Philadelphia or Boston later this week.
The Clippers will only play 6 preseason games instead of 8 due to the China trip. They will also have training camp close to home not Vegas.
Nate Robinson is out tonight with a sore knee.
No Nate Robinson for Clippers.
Derek Fisher said Clippers are more efficient offensively than the team he beat last spring with the Thunder.
