The Los Angeles Clippers won by 45 and it wasn’t that close.

Seriously.

Sunday night was just a perfect storm of everything going right for the Clippers and everything going wrong for the Sixers. This was a game where the Clippers were ahead 100-51 after three quarters and went on to win 123-78.

Here are just some of the notable numbers from destruction.

• The 45-point win margin set a franchise record for the Clippers.

• To quote Ron Burgundy: “Well, that escalated quickly.” The Clippers started the game on a 13-0 run and led by 31 in the first quarter.

• The lead peaked in the third quarter when the Clippers were up 89-33.

• Philadelphia shot 27 percent on the night, the worst shooting night the Sixers have had since March 2004 when they had the same kind of night against Boston.

• At one point Philly went on a 14-0 run and that cut the lead to 42.

• Some individual numbers for Philly: Spencer Hawes 0-for-8, Evan Turner 1-for-8, Michael Carter-Williams 5-for-18, Lavoy Allen 2-of-10, Lorenzo Brown 1-of-6, James Anderson 1-of-6.

Blake Griffin had 26 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists in 25 minutes.

• Oh, and by the way Blake Griffin did this to the Sixers:

    I guess someone reminded the 76ers this was a tank year.

    That second dunk made me pretty happy. I don’t know why the Sixers didn’t take their ball and go home.

    Welp…….that explained the ridiculous 15.5 point spread.

    But how did Sasha play?

      Sasha got into the fourth quarter garbage time . Ralph Lawler said that this could be the only time he could show his skills to Doc before his 10 contract was up . That being said Sasha appeared nervous and in the first couple of minutes looked pretty bad passing and getting his shots blocked , but then he came alive and hit a couple of three’s and started playing like he’s capable . Not bad for a guy on the bubble . He showed he can hit the outside shot and looks like a pretty good three guard behind CP3 and Collision . He can play defense and get a steal or two . I think he stays .

    I thought that the 76ers were going to lose by 76.

    Missed your opportunity to sell high on Turner and Young. Worthless now.

    What a bunch of shameless quitters.

    • ron05342 - Feb 10, 2014 at 2:31 PM

      They didn’t quit. I watched the second half and they played hard, even went on a 14-0 run during the third. I never saw any quit in them, they were just outclassed last night.

    They’re almost as bad as the Eagles!
