The Boston Celtics decimated the LA Lakers (139-107) and claimed the largest regular-season win over their rivals in more than 50 years.

It’s their largest win over the Lakers, regular season or postseason, since beating them 131-92 in Game 6 of the 2008 NBA Finals.

It was also only the seventh time in which this rivalry was decided by 30 points or more in the regular season.
