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:
