Bynum Admits wasn’t Ready for Game 3
Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum did not go through his normal pregame routine prior to the Denver Nuggets’ 99-84 win in Game 3 on Friday and said that the lack of prep time contributed to his slow start in the first half.
“I got there a little late,” Bynum said of his Pepsi Center arrival before the Lakers practiced at a gym connected to their team hotel on Saturday. “So, I probably didn’t have as much time as I needed.”
Bynum was scoreless in the first half, going 0 for 3 from the field as the Nuggets built a 16-point lead heading into halftime.
“I took myself out (of it),” Bynum said. “I was just not, I guess I don’t know, maybe just not ready to play.”
