The stats and records kept stacking up against the Lakers throughout their staggering 131-92 loss to Boston in Game 6.
Among the things they hope to forget in the off-season are:
Boston's 39-point margin of victory was the largest for any team in a clinching game in the NBA Finals. The previous record was the Celtics' 33-point victory (129-96) over the Lakers in Game 5 in 1965.
The Celtics set a Finals record by collecting 18 steals against the Lakers in Game 6. The old mark was 17 by Golden State against Washington in Game 3 of the 1975 Finals.
The Celtics' margin of victory was the second-largest in Finals history, falling short of Chicago's 42-point victory (96-54) over Utah in Game 3 of the 1998 Finals.
