GAME NOTEBOOK: Sixers center Andrew Bynum addressed the media prior to Sunday's game and said both his knees started to swell after he went bowling eight days ago. Bynum, who has yet to practice or play with Philadelphia due to a bone bruise in his right knee knee, said doctors told him the cartilage in his knee is in a "weakened state." ... Cavaliers rookie center Cody Zeller, the No. 17 overall pick, had all six of his points in the fourth quarter in his second game back after sitting out four games with a fractured left orbital bone and a concussion. ... Nick Young did not play in the fourth quarter because he was feeling dizzy and light-headed.
