The Blazers own several NBA records, both good and bad. One of the most ignoble NBA records was set by the Blazers on Feb 27, 1998, when the scarlet and black went into Indiana (fresh of a defeat of the defending champion Bulls the night before) and got embarrassed by the Pacers, 124-59. That's right, 124 to 59. The 65 point victory was the second biggest margin of victory in NBA history (Cleveland beat Miami in 1991 by a score of 148-80), but it was the first--and only--time that one NBA team had doubled up another. The ratio of victory that evening was 2.1017.
It almost looked as though that record would fall tonight.
Tonight, in the Staples Center, the Los Angeles Lakers beat (ironically) the Cleveland Cavaliers by a final score of 112-57, a 55 point margin of victory, and a ratio of victory of 1.9649. After 3 quarters, the Lakers led by a score of 92-41, and it looked as though the Blazers "record" would fall. But the Lakers only outscored the Cadavers by 4 in the 4th, leading to the 55-point margin of victory.
Portland still remains the only team to get lapped in an NBA game... curse you Phil Jackson, for not be sufficiently ruthless and arrogant to get a rather obnoxious monkey off the backs of our favorite franchise!
