Los Angeles Lakers Vs. Orlando Magic NBA Highlights

The Los Angeles Lakers take on the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night as they look for their second win of the young season. Kobe Bryant will once again be out of action nursing a sore back, and veteran Metta World Peace will take his place in the starting lineup. The eyes of most Lakers fans will be closely watching Coach Byron Scott, who has come under fire for his handling of rookie point guard, D’Angelo Russell.

Check out the highlights below:

  • I would take a offensive pg over a defensive pg any day, defense is a team effort and there really isn’t a pg in the league who is a lock down defender anyway. I want defense from my 5 and 3 not my pg

  • I watched him last night. Lot of his shots were easy and makeable but they just weren’t falling. I give Russell credit on that but thinking he defensive stopper as far as we all seen him during his time with the Lakers its been horrible. Been letting players get open shots, not fighting over screens and late rotations by him with his slow lateral speed.

  • Never said he should lock anyone up night in night out but when he don’t even show effort that’s hurting your teammates because they have to make that extra rotation leaving THEIR MAN wide open which you don’t realize. By the way it would be great to have the WHOLE team play defense. We are actually showing it this year which I like but its pretty obvious he isn’t trying. I can understand with Kobe. But with Russell with his young legs, there is no excuse.

  • Let me say one thing. The Magic has showed no answers for the pick n’ roll with Julius… Why Byron tooked him out in the last play? I wished D’angelo, Lou, Nick, Randle and Hibbert. Lou playing pick n’ roll with Randle, if the guys colapse, trow the ball to the outside to Nick or D’angelo. If the guys buyed Randle, Let Lou shot a litle floater. If Randle is open, pass him the ball.

    This is not simple?
