Andrew Bynum may be a large man-child that acts like a real idiot at times, but sometimes he's a man on a mission. Sunday that mission was clear--block as many shots as possible. I think its safe to say that mission was completed.

Bynum entered into rare territory when he rejected shot No 10 in the fourth period against the Denver Nuggets. With that block he tied the record for most blocked shots in a single post season game held by Hakeem "the Dream" Olajuwon and Mark Eaton. He also broke the team record previously held by the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabaar.

To make the night even better for Bynum and the Lakers, he also had 10 points and 13 rebounds to record the first triple-double in post season play for the Lakers since Magic Johnson did it back in the 1991 Finals.

Oh, and in case anyone cares, the Lakers defeated the Nuggets 103-88.
