He's currently averaging about 11 ppg, 2 rpg, and 4apg, but if given the minutes (30+ a game), and taken off the coaches short leash (which he's always been on), expect for him to put up Kyrie Irving type numbers or very close to it for the rest of the season.

And when he puts up those numbers the rest of the team will shoot 38%. He may stuff the stat-sheet now and then but he has no play making abilities.

Don't kid yourself; dude's a beast when he gets starter minutes. Tonight Bayless had 28 pts (9-17), 6 rebs, 9 assists, 3 steals, 1 blk, the team shot 48% from the field, and the Raptors won.

As I said before, assuming he continues to play 30+ mpg, don't be surprised if this guy puts up Kyrie Irving numbers (or even Russell Westbrook type numbers) for the rest of the season.

Yeah looks like they are.
