The 2013-14 NBA season has been one to forget for the proud Los Angeles Lakers franchise. Usually a team contending for titles, the Lakers are stuck in purgatory this season, waiting for the draft lottery to help their rebuild.

Despite the struggles, this Laker team has had their fair share of highlights. An opening night win against the Clippers and Steve Blakes game-winning 3 over Dwight Howard stand out the most.

Now we can add the greatest scoring quarter in Laker team history to that list.

With Phil Jackson in the building, Los Angeles took Carmelo Anthony and New York to the woodshed. As the video above shows, the Lakers went absolutely bonkers in the third quarter of last night’s nationally televised match-up, scoring a franchise record 51 points on 19-26 shooting. Just look at how ridiculous their shot chart was.

The most incredible part of the scoring outburst? The Lakers were missing Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, and Pau Gasol, among others. A roster of D-League prospects and fringe rotation guys caught lightning in a bottle last night, doing something none of the big name Lakers had ever been able to do before.

In a season full of disappointment, this ragtag Laker roster put on a show that will go down in the Laker record books forever.

Thank you Swaggy P.
