Andrew Bynum: The Lakers Can’t Rebound Without Me

When Trevor Ariza came into the game for Andrew Bynum with 5:31 left in the game last night, the Lakers led 107-100. From that point until Troy Murphy tipped in the game-winner, the Lakers were outrebounded 11-2. During that stretch, six of the Pacers’ boards came on the offensive end, and provided Indiana with the second-chance opportunities to close that gap.

“The second unit played well, got a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter,” said Bynum. “We were all taken out with six minutes to go in game. We didn’t get any rebounds [after that]. I don’t know what to say about that.”

Though Bynum might be justifiably pissed at Phil, he was in the game when Troy Murphy snuck to the glass for the game-winner. He was one of the guys who swarmed Rasho Nesterovic when he lost the handle.
