Andrew Bynum's ejection in the third quarter at Houston led to the Lakers giving up a 12-point fourth quarter lead.

"I was irritated," Mike Brown said of Bynum's ejection. "He's got to figure out what he wants to do.

"You've got to ask him what his response was to the ref, when he had the interaction with the ref, but we need him on the floor, and (neither) he nor anybody else right now can put themselves in jeopardy."
