How did Lakers center Andrew Bynum follow up his 24-point effort Wednesday against Golden State?

With a strong practice on Thursday.

‘He was very aggressive today,’ Coach Phil Jackson said. ‘He had a real solid practice.’

Bynum made eight of 13 shots in the Lakers’ exhibition victory over the Warriors. He made eight of nine free throws. However, he had only five rebounds and did not have a blocked shot in almost 31 minutes.


Jackson, when asked if he’d like to see more rebounding from Bynum, answered: ‘Always. That’s one of the keys, rebounding and defense. That’s where we really know we’ll have our big guys help us out.’
