By Brian Kamenetzky

The Lakers made it three straight Saturday at Staples, beating Denver in a hard fought game, 92-89. In his first game of the season, Andrew Bynum led the way with 29 points, 13 rebounds, and a pair of blocks.

In tonight's Lakers Late Night, we break down his performance and what he'll mean going forward. All that, plus...
In-show vids include Brown, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Bynum, and Fisher. All that, and bad movie line readings. Happy new year!
