Byron Scott ‘angry’ with Lakers’ celebration after beating Celtics

Kobe Bryant expertly used subtext to express his displeasure with Nick Young, Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer hamming it up after the Lakers beat the Celtics on Sunday.

Lakers coach Byron Scott agreed with his star, but he was a bit more straightforward.

Baxter Holmes of ESPN:

Byron Scott said he was “angry” and “very disappointed” with how some of his players boisterously celebrated Sunday night after an overtime win against the rival Boston Celtics

“Kobe’s reaction was pretty much my reaction when I was watching it,” Scott said after practice Tuesday at the Lakers’ facility. “I was just shaking my head like, ‘I can’t believe this.’ ”

Scott said he showed his players the footage Tuesday morning and “just told them that I was disappointed in it. That’s not us as Lakers. That’s not how we act. It showed a lack of professionalism.”
