Nobody saw this coming.

The Lakers second string — Jordan Farmar, Xavier Henry, Wesley Johnson, Jodie Meeks and Jordan Hill — put up 41 points on 65.2 percent shooting, with an off-the-charts offensive rating of 154.6 points per 100 possessions in the fourth quarter. They scored the Lakers’ final 46 points, taking a close opening night game and blowing it wide open.

Winning that way may not be sustainable, but Lakers fans — not to mention players — sure savored it Tuesday night after a summer of hearing how much better the Clippers were than them.
