It's still preseason. We have to allow time for the guys to get adjust to the way the plays go for this team and get back their timing in the process.

Bayless looked like he had a good game yesterday :D

One thing you'll love about Bayless is his defense against quick point guards. There were times where he would shut down opposing point guards. I'm not sure if you guys remember the game but last year he shut down Conley where the Raptors came out with a victory in overtime. He also shut down Deron Williams and played some of the best defense I've ever seen on Derrick Rose.

However in Toronto since he was playing the combo guard role he played a bit of shooting guard and always got torched. Can't blame him too much because of his T-Rex arms and he doesn't have the bulk to keep stronger guys in check, but against quick guards he's excellent.
