Will Bynum erupts for 29 points in Euro League Debut.
Former Guard Will Bynum in Europe: Looks like Will Bynum and Luke Schenscher were roster cuts this offseason, with Luke almost making the Bulls roster once again. Once the Bulls drafted Tyrus Thomas, you kind of knew it was the end of the road for Luke. Hopefully Luke can team up with Will in Europe. I will have an update on some former Georgia Tech players very soon. This article is from a European news site, and this game was a HUGE game for Bynuym's squad. I expect Will Bynum to be playing in the NBA soon.
Maccabi Tel Aviv edged out Unicaja Malaga 106-101 in an overtime thriller at Yad Eliahu yesterday, but it was a victory that left many questions hanging over Neven Spahija's new-look side.
Will Bynum erupted for 29 points in his Euroleague debut, while Nikola Vujcic hit 14 points, adding 10 rebounds and 7 assists. Jamie Arnold came off the bench for 17 points and 8 rebounds, Simas Jasaitis added 14, Derrick Sharp 13 and rookie Lior Eliyahu 12.
The second half was neck-and-neck, with Bynum taking the game on to his shoulders and setting the crowd alight with his driving runs. But Bynum failed in managing Tel Aviv's game and Cabezas penalized Maccabi time after time.
"We need to be in focus the whole time and not just for 10 or 20 minutes. Then everything will look much better," said Will Bynum. "We are still a new team. It was a great game. We played well, but we all need to focus more on defense and improve it."
