Andrew Bynum Named Western Conference Player Of Week

Andrew Bynum has stepped up in the absence of Kobe Bryant, and the Los Angeles Lakers aren't missing a beat. They're winning all sorts of basketball contests against all sorts of basketball teams. It's why the Laker center won the Western Conference Player of the Week award. Bynum has averaged 21.8 points, 16.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks during that stretch, and the Lakers won all four contests.

Here's a look at each of the four games.

  • Bynum put up 18 points and 11 rebounds to help assist Pau Gasol in a victory over the Hornets.
  • Bynum put up a gem that probably earned him this award, an incredible 30 rebound performance in a beatdown of San Antonio.
  • Bynum had his most efficient offensive performance against Denver, piling in 30 points to go along with eight rebounds to keep ahead of the Nuggets most of the game.
  • Bynum only shot 37.5% as the Mavericks bottled him up, but he still managed to grab 16 rebounds in an overtime victory over Dallas.
