Hoops - Bynum getting some minutes

Well, the odds are still against Will "the Thrill" Bynum to make the Celtics squad, but it looks like at least he'll get a fighting chance.

Asked why Bynum would receive minutes last night, Doc Rivers said, ''because he's from Chicago" and ''every once and a while he needs a chance."

Rivers and Brown, who also both hail from Chicago, understand better than most what playing significant minutes in front of the United Center crowd meant to Bynum.
