Percentage of field goals made by the Lakers towards 126 points, both season highs. L.A. scored 72 in the second half – a season high for a half – with 40 of them coming from Jordan Farmar and MarShon Brooks off the bench.
Points for Farmar, a career high. He also dished out seven assists and drained a career-high eight three-pointers, while keying L.A.’s comeback in the second half.

Three-pointers made by the Lakers, a franchise record. L.A. converted at a 77.8 percent clip (14 of 18) in the second half and 70.6 percent overall (19 of 27). Farmar led the way with eight makes; Jodie Meeks and Brooks both made all three of their attempts; and Kent Bazemore and Wesley Johnson drilled two each.
