Brown Wants Better Execution from Lakers
“We don’t have guys like there are on a lot of the teams out there,” Lakers coach Mike Brown was saying earlier in the day. “Like Miami … they’ve got multiple guys that can just go get it. You look at Oklahoma City, they’ve got guys that can go get it off the dribble. Some of the elite teams have that. Some of the teams that are in playoff contention have that.
“We don’t necessarily have a lot of those guys,” Brown said. “So that means that offensively, our execution needs to be that much more important so that if we do get in a situation where we break down at the end of the shot clock, we’re not searching for Kobe and he’s taking tough shots. So we’ve got to do what I call attack the clock, push the pace to get into our offensive sets early enough so that we can get to our second, third and fourth option in our play sets without being in a panic or being in a hurry.”
