Los Angeles Lakers stumbled to the lowest of lows last night with their worst loss in franchise history against city-rivals the LA Clippers.

The 48-point loss acted as the Lakers highest deficit loss in their history, and the organisation admitted afterwards that the defeat is the most embarrassing in their history.

Talk about the little brother battering the bigger brother when he's down, that's exactly what the Clippers did Thursday to their storied rivals.

Gone of the days when the Lakers ruled all with five NBA titles under the guidance of Kobe Bryant.

The guard is out and the Lakers are a shadow of their former dominating self.

Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni admitted after the game that his team had been 'killed' by the Clippers.

"In the first quarter I thought we played really well, then we took a body blow, and it looked like it just took us to our knees," Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni said. "The air went out big time. They smelled blood in the water and they killed us."

The Lakers worst loss previously was their 46-point defeat to Portland in 1995 when they went down 129-83, but that was blown out of the water last night in a shameful display.
