In beating the Lakers by 48 points at home on Monday, the Jazz tied for the largest winning margin in their history. The Lakers tied for their largest loss.

“The fans here, it’s more special because of the rivalry, because of the battles, because of the love-hate relationship,” Kobe Bryant said. “At the end, it’s hard to say goodbye to that. You want to go down memory lane and reminisce. They want to hate me tonight. I want to hate them. But we suck.”

At last, Jazz fans and Kobe agree on something.
