Brendan Haywood stepping upPosted by Inside Hoops
FoxSports (Charley Rosen) reports: With his newfound freedom and responsibility, Brendan Haywood is finally playing with passion. Indeed, it’s no stretch to claim that Haywood outplayed Shaq — scoring 10 to Shaq’s six, and claiming 10 rebounds where Shaq had only seven. Haywood even managed to get a piece of one of Shaq’s jump hooks. But the one stat that indicates Haywood’s true domination was his corralling five offensive rebounds.
