    I thought Bynum had a bad game tonight, but I was pleasantly surprised when I checked the boxscore. The guy had 17 points, 11 boards, and 2 blocks. It surprised the hell out of me. Sure, he missed those two free throws near the end, but it's not his fault. It's the first time the guy had any sort of pressure weighing in on him to win the game. He will get better once he gets more experience in these situations. I must admit, my perception of Bynum has took a complete 180 degree turn ever since the beginning of the season. Let's just hope he can continue this type of play for the rest of the season, and playoffs.

    Yeah, those last two free throws got to him and he missed them both.Agree hopefully he won't get fatigue and start to slow don his game.But hopefully Kwame could get back soon so that he could help him out because Mihm is hust an embarrassment out there.

    Bynum only had two shot attempts in the 4th quarter last night. He definitely needs more touches in close games. I know he missed those two free throws and nerves got the better of him, but he's at a point where no one can handle him one on one anymore. They should run more plays for him and stop relying on the damn three ball.

    Kobe had another bad 4th quarter performance. He only made 1 out 6 attempts and only shot inside the paint on one of those attempts.

    I missed the 2 blocks part, when I first responded.

    Another "AB" has quite similar stats to Bynum:
    Bynum: 11.1 ppg, 59% FG%, 10.0 rpg, 1.6 apg, 2.1 bpg, 27.8 mpg
    Biedrins:10.7 ppg, 63% FG%, _9.6 rpg, 1.4 apg, 1.4 bpg, 28.0 mpg

    I consider Bynum a much more difficult player to defend, but only puts up 0.4 ppg more than Biedrins.

    Im really really proud on how Andrew played... He cleaned up where Kobe spilled some milk.

    Imagine if Bynum keeps this up (18, 11 and 2 at least) with Kobe coming back to full strength and HOPEFULLY averaging 50% from the field... Can i say... Shaq and Kobe II

    When I look at the most recent box score and see 10/11 FG, 4/4 FT, 11 rebounds and 2 blocks for Bynum it's amazing. Especially considering the efficiency he only missed one shot wheareas Kobe on the overhand seriously needs to check himself imo he shot 6/20 FG and he has been shooting like this for some time now when is he going to take a break? As from what I've heard this poor shooting and play is from his injury?

    With Bynum's recent play can mitch say "I told you so" to kobe?

    No, because at the time Kobe made those statements, he was 100% accurate. Those statement lit a fire under Bynum's ass. Kobe's comments did him good.
