Andrew Bynum Ties Playoff Record For Most Blocks In a Playoff Game

Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum racked up 10 blocks against the Denver Nuggets on Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. The tally ties an NBA playoff record for blocks in a playoff game and helped the Lakers handle the Nuggs by a score of 103-88 in their first-round Western Conference playoff series.

Ball Don’t Lie explains:

He is just the third player to post double-figure blocks in a playoff game, joining former Utah Jazz center Mark Eaton, who set the record by blocking 10 shots against the Houston Rockets on April 26, 1985, and Hall-of-Famer Hakeem Olajuwon, who tied Eaton’s mark with 10 blocks against the Lakers on April 29, 1990. Olajuwon, too, posted a triple-double, scoring 11 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.
