Will Byunum scores 28 points in preseason game
With at least one guard likely not being in the rotation to start the season, coach Maurice Cheeks said he wouldn’t put Bynum in the non-contributing category. Bynum scored 28 points, had six assists, seven turnovers and four rebounds against the two-time defending champions.
“I didn’t know he could do that,” Cheeks said after Friday’s practice. “I didn’t know he could score and move a scoreboard like he did last night. I hadn’t really seen him do that before. I heard he could score like that in certain spots. That was pretty phenomenal last night.”
Bynum said playing for a former point guard who had a successful NBA career is a different experience.
