The Knicks were housed by the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night. No Kobe Bryant. No Pau Gasol. No Steve Nash. And the Lakers, with Chris Kaman, Ryan Kelly, Nick Young, and Xavier Henry...put up 51 points on the Knicks in a quarter.

In a single quarter.

It set a franchise record for both teams, the highest scoring total for a quarter in Lakers history, the most points given up by the Knicks in a quarter. In so many years for both teams, that means something.

Just unbelievable. Here's what that looks like in shot chart form.

If the Lakers hold on, New York will be four losses back in the loss column to Atlanta, which has 13 games left. The Knicks have 12 games left to make up a three-game lead.
