Bynum struggles in Florida
At least a bad game against Dwight Howard is easy to understand; Friday's performance against the undersized Heat and 6-foot-9 center Joel Anthony is a head-scratcher. Case in point: Brook Lopez dominated Miami to the tune of 22 points, 13 boards and five blocks Saturday. Of course, slumps are inevitable in a long NBA season, especially with a young player such as Bynum. If the 21-year-old doesn't turn it around soon (like Monday at Memphis, for instance), then you can be justifiably concerned.
