Andrew Bynum pulled down a career high 30 rebounds as the Los Angeles Lakers had one of their most impressive victories of the season Wednesday night, a 98-84 road triumph over the San Antonio Spurs at AT&T Center. The win concluded a three-game trip for the Lakers, and was without Kobe Bryant, who missed his third straight game with a shin injury.
Bynum had 19 of his 30 rebounds in the first half. His 30 rebounds are an NBA high this season, and he is the fifth Laker ever to have 30 boards in one game, and the first since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on February 3, 1978, per Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register. Bynum also had 16 points and two blocked shots.
The Lakers led by five points at halftime, but used a 27-16 third quarter to take a commanding lead. Danny Green led San Antonio with 22 points on the night.
The Lakers return home to host the Denver Nuggets Friday night.
