Funny time for Andrew Bynum to suddenly become a critic of Andrew Bynum.

All it took was one of the best two-game stretches of his career.

The Lakers center followed a record-setting triple-double that included 10 blocks in his playoff opener with a 27-point, nine-rebound effort in Game 2 that somehow fell short of his expectations.

"I left a lot on the court today," Bynum said Tuesday after the Lakers' 104-100 victory over the Denver Nuggets that gave them a 2-0 lead in their Western Conference first-round series that resumes with Game 3 on Friday at the Pepsi Center. "I worked way too hard before the game to let that happen. I could have had a perfect game."
