(KRON) The Golden State Warriors stumbled Sunday afternoon in a shocking loss to the Los Angles Lakers 112-95. The Lakers have the second worst record in the NBA.

And even a team that dominates the way the Golden State Warriors have this season is bound to stumble every now and then.

They tossed out a clunker against the Los Angeles Lakers, losing 112-95 on Sunday while shooting a season-worst 13 percent from 3-point range.

“We got what we deserved,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “When the ball doesn’t go in, you have to win with energy and defense and toughness, and we didn’t have any of that.”

The young Lakers did, led by Jordan Clarkson with 25 points and rookie D’Angelo Russell with 21. They handed the defending NBA champions just their sixth loss of the season, all on the road.

Steph Curry only had 18 points while Splash Brother Klay Thompson scored just 15 points.

Kobe Bryant scored 12 points.

How the 2015-16 Golden State Warriors compare to the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls, who set the NBA single-season record with 72 wins.

Warriors’ record through 61 games: 55-6.

Last result: Lost to Lakers 112-95.
