VIDEO: Lakers Set Franchise Record With 51 Points In A Quarter

The Los Angeles Lakers put on an offensive clinic during the third quarter of their game against the New York Knicks. The team scored a franchise record 51 points in the quarter, including six three-pointers and one four-point play. Some may be surprised that a unit led by Nick Young and Xavier Henry and not Laker greats such as Magic, Kareem, Shaq, or Kobe set the franchise record. The Lakers former high for points in a quarter was 49 twice, with the latest coming in 1972.
