Lakers Bench Lin, Boozer to Tighten Up Defense

Updated

on

After promising changes following a tough loss to the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott followed through on his word.

“Starting lineup has been changed: Ronnie Price will start at the point guard; Kobe (Bryant) at the two; Wesley (Johnson) at the three; Ed Davis at four; Jordan Hill at five,” Scott told NBCLA.com on Sunday morning.

Jeremy Lin and Carlos Boozer were no longer starting, and Price and Davis had usurped their starting roles. Scott pointed to a “defensive mentality” that both Price and Davis possessed–something the coach thought the team needed at this moment.
