Andrew Bynum: Pulls Down 30 Rebounds Against Spurs

Update: Bynum ripped down an NBA season-best 30 rebounds in the Lakers' victory at San Antonio on Wednesday. He also scored 16 points and added two assists and two blocks on the evening.

Recommendation: Bynum is a physical beast, and while he has definitely broken out this year, many have envisioned his dominance escalating to a level similar to what he displayed Wednesday. It seems to be a question of desire and motivation with the young star. In the absence of Kobe Bryant the past three games, and Bynum being called upon to lead the charge, he has averaged 19 points and 19.7 boards while getting 21-plus shots per game. It will be interesting to examine the Lakers' dynamic when Bryant returns.
