    They all got over 10 shot meaning that JB was moving the ball around

    Bayless had a very good game. Again shot selection and decision making when trying to score was a question mark, but like I said, VERY good game.

    Raptors - Bayless = No win vs. Grizzlies.

    I'll admit Bayless had a monster game last night. He made shots, played suffocating defense on Conley, and basically willed his team to victory. He played great.

    But don't forget that this was his best game of his NBA career. Let's not assume it'll be the norm.

    Having said that, when Calderon returns from injury, I think it would be wise to maintain Bayless as the starter to give him the fairest shot possible at making this team next season.

    Best game I've seen Bzyless play, by a country mile. And to be honest, his play has impressed me the last three games. Not to say there weren't moments last night (and on the other two) where I wasn't screaming at the tube, "Bayless, you moron." The two that standout from last night were when he allowed himself to get trapped at half-court, where there is a 50-50 chance that any wild pass attempt you make get's called for an over-and-back, and the mad drive through three defenders, with one minute left, when he got bailed out and managed to score.

    But can't take away his mostly heads-up play and good distribution. Maybe he CAN be point guard. Maybe Casey has started taking him into a small room and smacking him once in the forehead with a two-by-four fro every idiotic play. Whatever, over the last three games he has increasingly corrected the major flaws in his game.

    Hats off to Jared Bayless

    You said yourself last night, you didn't watch the game till the fourth.


    "Just got home how are we winning lol?" midway through the fourth


    You really discredit the rest of your posts when you make uneducated comments.

    I'll disagree with this.
    It was one of his best games, but we've seen on more than one occasion, Bayless have games like this.
    Not the first time he's done it. (Detroit last year is the perfect example.)

    Doesn't mean Bayless got them the ball to take the shots.

    Because while stats are useful, they are no substitute for watching the game.

    This is an argument that has been discussed earlier in the thread.

    Bayless is very talented. There are few NBA players who are not very talented.

    Regardless of whether it was his best NBA game or not (or if Detroit was his best game last year, whatever), these games are not the norm. Like most NBA players, when he gets hot, he is unstoppable. I'm not expecting this type of performance every night but more consistency is going to be crucial in his development - whether starting in Toronto or where ever else. Bringing it night in and night out is what separates a starter from a bench player on a good team.

    *EDIT* By the way, consistency is something many Raptors are struggling with.

    I would be curious to see how other Raptors have preformed since Bayless has taken the helm. While he is not taking the shots for them I think other players have suffered with him on the court. That is just my observation.

    I'm not saying he did. I'm just make the statement he didn't hog the ball and that other players were able to get going.

    I wouldn't characterize last nights game as a good ball movement game. Nor was Bayless out there dishing the ball and setting guys up. That's just not happening.

    He is doing what he can do and he is doing it well. You guys are delusional if you think he is a play maker and and a great passer. I admit he gets it done scoring and he is a good defender.

    Be honest with yourself and don't make him out to be something he is not. Your arguments would go a lot farther.

    I am not delusional at all. I know what kind of player Bayless is.
    And since starting, he has made a SERIOUS effort to get others involved, and averaging 8 assists per game is proof and testament to that.
    He's a young Point Guard, who knows how to score the ball. He's LEARNING to get others involved, and it is showing.
    I think you are "delusional" if you can't acknowledge that he has improved as a play maker.
