Jeremy Lin, who went scoreless and recorded a single assist in 22 minutes of action, was simply speechless at one amusing point in his postgame chat with reporters.
Lakers head coach Byron Scott threatened to bench lazy defenders, while Carlos Boozer added that the team needs better offensive balance.
Per the LA Times:
Lakers Coach Byron Scott wasn’t happy from the first Warriors basket — a fastbreak alley-oop dunk from Stephen Curry to Andrew Bogut — to their final one. He yelled at his team at halftime and threatened to reduce unspecified players’ minutes if the hustle didn’t improve. […] “Our guys were jogging,” he said. “I wasn’t very happy about it. We can’t win that way. Period. … Patience is running thin and it has nothing to do with execution.”
There were more signs of a heavily unbalanced offense, the other four starters combining for 35 shots, one fewer than Bryant. […] “It’s tough, man,” said Carlos Boozer, who had six points. “We’ve got to find a balance between the two. It can’t be lopsided. We’ve got to find a balance for us to be successful.”
Bryant then wrapped up the Lakers’ season in a nutshell, talking about his high degree of responsibility. […] “It’s on me. Things go good, it’s us. Things go bad, it’s me,” he said. “That’s the responsibility of being in this seat.”
