Byron Scott looks forward to rivalry renewal

LOS ANGELES -- The players and coaches that made the Lakers-Celtics rivalry one of the most storied in sports history are nearly all gone now. The only one left, on the court anyway, as the two teams met at Staples Center on Sunday was Byron Scott, whose disdain for the Celtics as a Lakers player in the 1980s has carried over to his time as a Lakers coach. “Probably not,” Scott said Sunday when asked if he could have coached the Celtics.

After win, Lakers look to stay in the zone

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- A day removed from an overtime win against the Boston Celtics that snapped the Los Angeles Lakers' seven-game losing streak, Wes Johnson summarized coach Byron Scott's pregame words to the team: "'I hate those guys. Go out there and win it for me,'" Johnson recalled Scott saying. "That was like the main thing I got out of it. He hated them." The vitriol hasn't quite translated to a young Lakers team whose longest-tenured active players are Jordan Hill and Robert Sacre, both in their third season.

Scott looks to tweak starting lineup again

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott may have accepted his team’s lottery fate in this lost season, but he’s still going to go down swinging over the team’s final 28 games. Scott, who has already used nine different starting lineups and 12 different starters this season, said he plans on tinkering with the starting lineup again, possibly before the Lakers’ upcoming game against the Boston Celtics on Sunday.

Lakers move on after quiet trade deadline

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The NBA trade deadline came and passed Thursday, and the Lakers' roster didn't change one bit, unlike so many others around the league. The only move that affected the team's future didn't directly involve them, as, according to sources, the Phoenix Suns sent the top-five-protected pick owed to them by the Lakers to the Philadelphia 76ers in a three-team trade. Lakers coach Byron Scott said he didn't have much of an opinion about the deals the Lakers didn't make or deals made by others.

Trade or no trade, Scott envisions shakeup

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott isn’t sure what his team will look like coming out of Thursday’s trade deadline but he is sure he will continue tweaking the starting lineup regardless. “There’s 29 games left, probably with 25 games left or maybe a little bit less than that I’ll probably make another lineup change just to give some other guys some time to just go out there and show what they can do as well,” Scott said.

Lakers ready to get away during break

PORTLAND -- Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott is looking forward to the eight-day All-Star break. He has his time off all planned out. "I'll be at a beach somewhere," he said after his team's 102-86 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers at the Moda Center here Wednesday. "I'll play some golf, I'll probably have some type of drink with an umbrella on it and just have a good time. Try to relax." That sure doesn't sound like a bad plan after the Lakers head into the break on a six-game losing streak, having lost 15 of their last 16 games and, if we're really counting, 40 of their last 53.

Nick Young not worried about foot injury

PORTLAND -- No injury is timely, but Nick Young was at least glad that he'll have some time to rest. The Los Angeles Lakers reserve guard suffered what the team called a "peroneal tendon strain" in his left foot -- meaning he strained a tendon near his ankle -- Wednesday in his team's 102-86 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers here at the Moda Center. Neither Young nor Lakers coach Byron Scott said they were sure how long Young would be sidelined, but Young didn't think the injury was all that serious.

Scott: Lakers lack the confidence to close

LOS ANGELES -- After seeing his team collapse and lose yet another recent close game, Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott has come to a conclusion. "The biggest thing with us right now is the last three, four minutes of the game, we have no confidence," Scott said after his team's 106-96 loss to the Denver Nuggets at Staples Center here Tuesday. "We're almost waiting for the wheels to fall off. That's the biggest thing right now." The Lakers have lost five straight and 14 of their last 15.

Cavs 120, Lakers 105: Love hurts

CLEVELAND -- Before Sunday's game, Lakers coach Byron Scott said if his team had any chance of stopping LeBron James, they just had to hope he missed jumpers. That’s right -- the Lakers just had to hope really hard. But James, the Cleveland Cavaliers star, didn't miss too many jumpers, nor did many of his teammates, especially Kevin Love. In fact, the Cavaliers buried 18 3-pointers – including seven by Love -- on their way to a 120-105 demolition of the guests at Quicken Loans Arena.

Young trying to regain his 'Swaggy P' game

CLEVELAND -- The upbeat "Swaggy P" persona has gone missing. The smiles and laughs and jokes have all been absent. In their place, Nick Young has just looked downtrodden, coming up short on everything from his shots to answers about why Lakers coach Byron Scott has been keeping him on the bench more and more lately. Sunday was another chapter in Young's ever-growing slump. He entered the Lakers' 120-105 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers having missed 12 consecutive field-goal attempts, two shy of his longest such drought this season.
