A group of around 13,000 fans made the trip to the Memphis Grizzlies' FedExForum to see a basketball game on Thursday. What they got instead was bizarre NBA history.

Despite missing star guard Ja Morant, the Grizzlies defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder by a score of 152-79. The 73-point margin was the largest in the history of the NBA, breaking the 68-point record set by the Cleveland Cavaliers in a 148-80 win over the Miami Heat in 1991.

Thanks to a 57-point home loss to the Indiana Pacers last season, the Thunder now own the NBA record for largest home and road losses.

The Thunder never led in the game. Instead, they were down 15 points by the end of the first quarter, 36 points at halftime and trailed by as many as 78 points midway through the fourth quarter.

The Grizzlies, who set a franchise record for points scored, could have missed every shot they attempted in the final 21 minutes of the game and still won.
