Lakers coach Byron Scott criticizes Nick Young after latest loss

Published Add your comment

Los Angeles Lakers are enduring a terrible season and things just seem to be getting worse for the storied franchise day by day.

The Lakers are now on an eight-game losing streak following their disappointing home loss against the Houston Rockets on Sunday night.

But worse than simply losing that game, the Lakers have plenty of unrest in their camp.

Granted, Kobe Bryant's potentially season-ending rotator cuff injury he sustained last week has left morale low at the Lakers, but fortunes continued on a downward spiral on Sunday night when coach Byron Scott slammed point-guard and high profile player Nick Young.

Safe to say, Nick Young didn't have a particularly great game in the loss to the Rockets, and when asked about his performance, Scott certainly didn't hold back on his thoughts.
