VIDEO: Andrew Bynum Has A Block Party, And All Denver Nuggets Are Invited

The Denver Nuggets are an NBA team, a very good one in fact. They are just a small NBA team, and that proved to be a problem against Andrew Bynum and the Los Angeles Lakers. Bynum blocked 10 shots, tying an NBA Playoffs record set by Hakeem Olajuwon and Mark Eaton. He added a triple-double -- the first points/rebounds/blocks triple-double in the playoffs since 1990 -- for good measure in the Lakers' blowout win.

Here's video of the first nine of Bynum's 10 blocks in the game.


The tenth block came against Timofey Mozgov, one of three Nuggets centers who was powerless to stop Bynum from dominating the paint. Size is such a huge factor in the playoffs, and the Lakers have a huge size advantage over the Nuggets that they will continue to exploit until the Nuggets find some magic growing beans. Unless that happens, Denver is in a lot of trouble in this series.
