Golden State reminds Byron Scott of Showtime Lakers

first_imgSo will Scott predict the Lakers will make the playoffs after two missed appearances in consecutive seasons? Scott“This team doesn’t have Magic (Johnson). We’ve got James (Worthy), but not in uniform,” said Scott, who also referenced Kareem Abdul-Jabbar “I don’t think I’ll do that right now.”The Lakers’ current struggles left Scott nostalgic about old times. But so did the Warriors’ play against the Clippers, which reminded him of the heated Lakers-Celtics matchups. “I love that. I miss that a lot,” Scott said. “You feel that hunger, that passion for it. You always feel like you want to be back out there and going through that. You start to feel hatred for the other team.” Change of routine Nothing, not even a 23-point deficit to the Clippers could keep the Golden State Warriors from sustaining their undefeated streak Thursday night. It stood at 13 games and likely counting, including when the Lakers play in Golden State on Tuesday. “The only thing that can stop them are injuries,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said before Friday’s game against Toronto at Staples Center. “They don’t have that championship hangover. I think they want more, which is scary.”The current Warriors reminded Scott of the Showtime Lakers in 1988 when they proved Pat Riley’s prediction correct at the championship parade the year before that his team would repeat. “When he said, guarantee, I knew vacation is over,” said Scott, who began training in early July as opposed to August. “We came back that year even more focused.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Lakers rookie point guard D’Angelo Russell stormed out of the players’ lounge. He then sat on a stability ball to stretch shortly before Friday’s game against Toronto. In pregame warmups, Russell often ends his otherwise serious sessions tossing up 3-pointers with one hand. “He doesn’t sleep and he runs around,” Scott said of Russell. “You have to relax and get off your feet.”Scott said he “gave him suggestions” on what Russell’s pregame routine should entail. Russell reported earlier in the season that Scott told him “it’s not a good routine” to have endless post-practice and pre-game sessions. But it appears Scott wants Russell to stay more disciplined with his practice habits, while also maximizing rest. Scott described Russell as “pretty hyper.”“After shootaround, I’d go home and sit around and look at TV for a little bit,” said Scott, reflecting on his 14-year NBA career. “I turned off everything. I didn’t answer the phone. I ate at a certain time. I took a shower at a certain time. I took a nap for a certain time. Then I got up and came to the game.”Scott plans to follow up with Russell on how he has adjusted his routine. But thus far, Scott has kept his distance.“At times I’ll go up to him and give him a hug,” Scott said. “Other times, I’ll let him figure it out.”last_img read more
