It wasn’t until 4 minutes, 37 seconds remained in the fourth quarter Sunday that D’Angelo Russell believed the Los Angeles Lakers would actually, truly win. That’s when the on-pace-for-the-best-record-in-NBA-history Golden State Warriors pulled their starters, effectively waving the white flag in a remarkable 112-95 upset loss to the on-pace-for-the-worst-record-in-franchise-history Lakers at Staples Center.

To place the game in the proper context, consider that in terms of the difference in winning percentage between two teams (minimum 25 games into the season), Sunday marked the biggest upset in NBA history, according to Elias Sports Bureau research.
