Indiana Pacers Deal Lebron's Worst Loss Ever In 42 Point Win

The Pacers led from start to finish in a 136-94 win over the Los Angeles Lakers at Banker's Life Fieldhouse.

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Pacers hit 19-three-point shots and never trailed as they pummeled the Los Angeles Lakers 136-94 Tuesday night.

At a deficit of 42-points it's the worst loss Lakers' forward Lebron James has ever suffered in his NBA career.

Bojan Bogdonovic led seven Pacers' players in double figures with 24 points. Center Myles Turner added 22 points and was 3-for-3 from behind the arc. Lebron James led the Lakers with a lack luster 18 points to go along with seven rebounds.

"It's a good win for us," said point-guard Cory Joseph who had 13 points off the bench. "Whenever we get a good win and play a complete game like we did today I think it gives us confidence. We had a lot of guys step up and do well."

It's the third straight win for the Pacers after they lost four-straight games immediately after losing All-Star Victor Oladipo for the season late last month.

"We went out there and took care of business," Forward Thaddius Young added as he scored 12 points. "It's not so much about beating them by 42. We just want to make sure we go out there and execute. It felt like we played a complete game tonight."

The Lakers have lost six of their last eight games with the loss as they fall fall back to .500 on the season at 27-and-27.
