D’Antoni on Struggles: ‘I Have to Get it Done’
Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni’s plan for an 11-man rotation is already proving to be easier said than done, and he’s the first to admit it.
“I have to get it done, in the sense of how we can’t fall too far back [in the standings],” D’Antoni said. “We have to get a set group and go with it. We’ll get there as quick as we can.”
The most glaring bench blunder Friday was Jordan Hill inexplicably sitting the entire game, finally getting his number called and playing like a banshee with five points, four rebounds (including three offensive) and an assist (to Wesley Johnson for a wide-open corner 3-pointer to get L.A. going), all in the fourth quarter.
