SAN ANTONIO — Sure, the Lakers’ loss to the San Antonio Spurs extended their losing streak to three games, but there was something to cheer them at game’s end. Andrew Bynum scored 10 points on 4-for-4 shooting, grabbed seven rebounds and added one assist and one blocked shot in a season-high 21 minutes, 52 seconds. He also missed six of eight free throws, which prompted to say he would shoot up to 200 before the Lakers’ game Wednesday against the New Orleans Hornets.
Here’s more from him:
“I’ve been working a lot with (assistant coach) Chuck (Person) and my touch is coming back around the rim. I’m doing the best I can with the ball when I’m in the game. I’ve just got to be a little more assertive, and really, really get that trust from my teammates again. I think that’s something I need to do, just be a little more demonstrative and ask for the ball and be a little bit more annoying. Obviously, if I knock my free throws down I stay in the game and get more touches.”
Bynum sat out the first 24 games of the season after having knee surgery July 28. He played in his seventh game.
