  • Mavericks Beat Lakers By 49 Points

    Lakers vs. Mavericks - Game Recap - January 22, 2017 - ESPN

    DALLAS -- Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks had something to prove on Sunday following two straight tough losses.

    Coming off a three-point effort in an overtime loss on Friday, Nowitzki scored all 13 of his points in the first half and Dallas gave the Los Angeles Lakers the worst loss in their history, 122-73.

    "We didn't show up to play," Lakers coach Luke Walton said. "It's embarrassing for us as a team and for us as an organization. The effort just wasn't there tonight, which I don't understand."

    The 49-point defeat just edged Los Angeles' two previous worst losses at 48 points, most recently 123-75 at Utah on March 28, 2016.

    The Mavericks' winning margin was the third-largest in their history.

    It was Dallas' 13th straight win over the Lakers, who have lost six of their last seven games overall.
