Watch the Los Angeles Lakers blow out the Golden State Warriors on their home floor on Sunday night for the playoffs-bound Warriors’ sixth loss of the season.
Heading into the final stretch of the 2015-16 NBA season, the Los Angeles Lakers are headed to another losing season and its third straight out of the playoffs. On the flip side, the Golden State Warriors are within striking distance of the record set by the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls for most regular season wins in NBA history.
But for one night in March, the Lakers proved to be the thorn on the side of the Warriors, pulling off a 112-95 upset at the Staples Center.
This win proved to be huge, as the Lakers beat a team with a much higher win percentage – the biggest in league history.

Here’s a look at the historic win by the Lakers over their Pacific Division rival Golden State:
