The Lakers got completely outclassed by the Clippers last night . There were only 3 games last night, and only 2 that mattered. And, well, it was a split. Trading Places: No teams traded places...

LOS ANGELES -- On Thursday the Clippers beat the Lakers for the seventh time since Chris Paul's trade to the Clippers was vetoed by the league. The nixed deal might be enough to make Lakers fans envious of Clippers fans (even though their team leads the Clips 16-0 in the championship department), but it's doubtful that it makes the players care any more or less. While talk of a crosstown rivalry makes for a convenient story line, that's just not the reality of today's NBA.

L.A. blazes a trail up north to win first game at the Moda Center: A name change did the Lakers good.

L.A. jumped ahead to an early 15-point lead and was able to hold on late thanks to a wonderful Wesley Johnson go-ahead alley-oop layup with 6.

LOS ANGELES -- There comes a point when you just want it to stop. All of it. The losing, the injuries, the frustration, the season. The end seems merciful because the present has become that awful. That’s what it felt like for the fans during the worst loss in Los Angeles Lakers history Thursday night. It was pretty bad for the players, too. Embarrassing, for sure. But to reach that level of dejection, you have to be deeply invested in something, and the guys currently wearing the purple and gold really don’t have much connection to the franchise.

LOS ANGELES -- It really was only 4 1/2 months ago that the Los Angeles Lakers drilled the Los Angeles Clippers on opening night to stun the NBA. That night isn't even a memory after the way the Clippers have manhandled their in-city rivals in the two meetings since. The Clippers drilled the Lakers 142-94 Thursday night, the worst loss in Lakers history. The previous worst loss was a 46-point defeat to the Portland Trail Blazers in 1995. It was the second consecutive game the Clippers beat the Lakers by more than 35 points -- the Clippers won on Jan.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- In an attempt to bust struggling Lakers point guard Kendall Marshall out of his slump, coach Mike D’Antoni said he will keep Marshall in the starting lineup when the Lakers host the Clippers on Thursday. After the Lakers’ 132-125 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday, a game in which Jordan Farmar had 20 points and eight assists in 26 minutes while starting the second half at point guard over Marshall, D’Antoni said he was considering a lineup change, but ultimately decided to stand pat.
The Clippers (42-20) have hopes for an NBA title in June. The Lakers (21-40) are eyeing the top pick in the NBA draft.
While sitting out all but six games this season with Achilles and knee issues, Kobe Bryant apparently had time to build a custom piano.
