"You get yourself in the fourth quarter and a chance to win, that's what you're looking for," Rockets coach Rick Adelman said. "But we didn't finish and they did. Bynum was a handful all night for us."

I think it's up to Phil to figure out rotations. I'd bring Pau to the bench first, not Andrew. Let Pau play the first 6 minutes or so, bring in Lamar, and during the beginning of the second bring Pau back in to run the second unit while Kobe rests.

When the game really matters of course Pau will play, but I think we can all agree Bynum plays best with Odom on the floor.
Sub Pau out, bring in Lamar. Sub out Bynum minutes later, bring in Pau again. Getting Andrew going early seems to get him into the game MUCH more. There are times he barely does a thing before going to the bench.

He runs a helluva lot better than Shaq ever did. He also runs a helluva lot faster than Yao, Big Z, and other legit 280lb+ 7-footers. When I see posters calling him a "sloth", it's almost as if these are young posters who are used to seeing the new breed of smaller KG-Dwight-Bosh big men that move quickly.
