Lakers concerned with Bynum’s minutes

Andrew Bynum  had his way with the Celtics  in Game 2, scoring 21 points. But that was with two days off between Games 1 and 2, and with the quick turnaround for Game, Laker coach Phil Jackson  said he would monitor Bynum early to see how his injured knee responds.
“I certainly will,” Jackson said. “Hopefully we can get him in and out of the game in the first half. A little earlier time for Lamar [Odom] to give him an opportunity to perform.”
Odom has been a non-factor through the first two games, with more fouls  than points [eight].
The Celtics would be just fine with getting Bynum out of the game because he has been a huge factor defensively for the Lakers. He bothered Rajon Rondo  in Game 1 and also made life tough for Glen Davis  in Game 2, who shot 4-for-13.
Both Rondo and Davis adjusted, however, and Davis was able to be effective by continually going to the glass where he recorded five offensive rebounds.
“[Davis] was huge in Game 2,” Doc Rivers  said. “He was great with his energy. You know, he’s not going to be taller than anyone in this series. This is a long team, and he goes underneath, sometimes he gets too deep, he can’t finish. One of the things he did better the other night, he got it up quick or he threw it back out.”
