We broke down some of the more intriguing numbers from LAL’s 142-94 loss against the Clippers:
Point second-quarter for the Clippers on 19 of 30 field goals (63.3 percent). The Lakers, on the other hand, shot just 5 for 20 towards 13 points and turned the ball over five times that led to 10 Clippers points. The visitors used the second frame to essentially blow the game open and score 142 points overall – a season high – as they handed the Lakers their worst loss in franchise history.
Plus-rating for Matt Barnes, a game high. Barnes recorded a double-double with 17 points and 12 rebounds, to go along with five assists and three steals. In the month of March, he is averaging 19.7 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.0 steals on 61.5 percent field goals and 50.0 percent on three-pointers.
Rebounds for the Clippers frontline of Barnes, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, compared to 33 for the entire Lakers team. The Clippers held a plus-31 edge on the glass overall and a plus-12 advantage on the offensive end (though the shooting percentages played a role in the huge discrepancy).
Four-point plays for the Lakers this season after Ryan Kelly completed his second of the year midway through the fourth quarter. Kelly finished with nine points and six boards in 21 minutes off the bench.
Assists for Kent Bazemore, a career high. He was one of three Lakers in double figures, as he scored 14 in a team-high 32 minutes.
