Lakers News: Byron Scott Wants His Team To Play Desperate (video)

The Los Angeles Lakers stand at 2-12 ahead of their matchup vs. the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night at the Moda Center. The Lakers are coming off a brutal 111-77 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night, after trailing by as many as 41 points in their worst offensive performance of the year.

Head coach Byron Scott wants them to play desperate, opening the game as if they were already down by 20 points. In the video below, Scott says he’ll be paying close attention to the intensity as a way to measure how the Lakers respond after an embarrassing performance in their last game. Plus, Scott discusses what the initial plan is for Kobe Bryant on the upcoming back-to-back and three games in four nights.

It was just last Sunday at Staples Center that the Lakers faced this Blazers team. Despite shrinking their deficit to just three points with 4:34 left in the game, the Blazers responded with a 10-0 run at the end of the fourth, beating them 107-93.
