George Karl: Bynum Played Illegal Defense
‘It’s the only way really possible for me to get a triple-double – through blocked shots,” (Andrew) Bynum said of his first career triple-double. ”If I play good D, we’ll win games. I think I’m just going to be as aggressively as I can defensively to contest their shots. … You’ve got to win Game 1. Statistics are against the teams that lose Game 1, especially on the home court.”
But Denver coach George Karl got a jump start on lobbying the officials for help against Bynum in Game 2.
”(Bynum) was playing a nice illegal defense,” Karl said. ”He was zoned up good. I think we got one illegal defense (call against Los Angeles). I saw about 30 of them. … The shot-blocker probably beat us.”
