After watching the tape of last night’s 132-114 loss to Sacramento, Lakers head coach Byron Scott found an unusual culprit aiding his team’s defensive struggles. Fatigue.
It’s a bit unusual to hear that two games into the regular season and something Scott said he hadn’t noticed in years past coaching.
But upon review and talking with the team, tired legs may have been a factor in the team falling behind by as many 31 last night.
“What I did see was guys making the effort but they just looked fatigued,” Scott said.
