So when the hollow Cleveland Cavaliers came to Staples Center on January 11, most people thought it'd be a rout. No one thought it'd get historical.
The Lakers' 55-point win was the franchise's biggest margin of victory. They never gave up more than 16 points in a quarter, and nearly doubled up the Cavs. Cleveland point guard Manny Harris was minus-57 in plus-minus, which is just embarrassing.
Although it's even more embarrassing that Harris is a starting point guard in the NBA. But I digress.
With this mammoth beatdown, people started wondering how it fit into the record books. Did the Lakers' make the list of biggest blowouts in sports history?
