Looks Like Byron Scott is Preaching That Tank Defense

112, 132, 103, and 120 — that’s how many points the Lakers have given up in each of their first four games. We’d criticize Byron Scott for being a piss-poor head coach, but clearly the man is on a mission to one-up the 76ers and land the No. 1 pick in next year’s draft.
I mean, how else do you explain Gary Harris going coast-to-coast for a dunk on your starting unit six minutes into the game? Is rim protection not the one thing Roy Hibbert’s supposed to provide?
Apparently not on this team:

Oh, and to go along with the bad defense, Byron benched D’Angelo Russell in the fourth quarter again! Can’t risk potentially getting a win, obviously — even if it means sacrificing the player development of the No. 2 overall pick.
