Unsurprisingly, the Lakers' other 48-point loss was also pretty recent, occurring on March 6, 2014, against the Los Angeles Clippers with a final score of 142-94.
Lakers guard Kobe Bryant missed that game against his Staples Center rivals a couple of years ago, but he wasn't fortunate enough to miss Monday's humiliation at the hands of a 37-37 Utah squad.
The future Hall of Famer played a big role in the loss, making just one of his 11 field-goal attempts on the way to a weak stat line of just five points, two assists and a steal in 28 minutes.
Of course, a 48-point defeat requires a true team effort, and the Lakers didn't disappoint in that regard.
Though they only turned the ball over nine times, the Lakers made just 26 of their 85 field-goal attempts (30.6 percent) while allowing the Jazz to convert 46 out of 89 (51.7 percent).
The Lakers forced just seven turnovers and were out-rebounded 57-37, with the Jazz picking up 13 offensive boards despite missing only 43 shots.
The game actually matched a record on both sides, as the 48-point margin of victory tied a Utah franchise record that was set back in 1989-90 during the Karl Malone-John Stockton era, per ESPN Stats & Info.
