Bench woes

Lakers coach Phil Jackson wasn’t pleased by the play of the Bench Mob during Tuesday’s victory over the New York Knicks. Here’s what he had to say about the ongoing battle to get more out of the second unit: “Right now they’re just filling minutes for guys who are getting a rest on the bench. We have to do better than that. … I think they’ve done OK in the middle part of the game. I think (Tuesday) night, there just didn’t seem to be leadership from the right sources out there.” New York’s backups outscored the Mob, 41-9.
