The Lakers snapped their losing streak, though likely a sigh of relief, was by no means cause for celebration.

They were all pretty quiet in there to be honest with you. I don’t think anybody was overjoyed in there,” Byron Scott said after the win.

With a tough schedule ahead, including back-to-back games in Memphis and New Orleans on Tuesday and Wednesday, the Lakers are just looking to get another win. Scott details that he saw about “70 percent” of what he wanted to see defensively from his squad.

Though Jeremy Lin disagreed that he was more aggressive Sunday night, Scott thought both Lin and Carlos Boozer played a much more assertive game, as opposed to getting “the ball to Kobe Bryant and moving out of the way.”

Scott also talks about Wesley Johnson’s lack of numbers in the stat sheet, despite playing 35 minutes, to which Scott takes part of the blame for that. It’s all in our post-game video above.
