(Byron) Scott disagrees with the notion that he has “lengthened the leash” on (D’Angelo) Russell, claiming the leash was never short to begin with. Instead, Scott says Russell has simply played better recently, which has led to increased confidence and allowed Scott to start him and play him more.

“I don’t think I really loosened it up,” Scott said. “I just think he’s getting more comfortable in his role. I don’t feel I’ve really loosened it that much. I don’t think it’s been that tight in the first place.”
