Byron Scott called Jacque Vaughn firing a ‘slap in the face’

Los Angeles Lakers head coach Byron Scott is smelling a rat after the convenient timing of firing Orlando Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn right before the two teams were about to face on Friday night.

The reason? They wanted to give the Magic a fresh (and winning) start for interim coach James Borrego, and who better to do that against than the lowly last place Lakers.

And that’s exactly happened, you could say. Orlando beat L.A. Friday night 103-97.
