Last night, after the Sixers’ 119-109 win over the Hawks, Bayless told NBCSportsPhilly that for it being this early in the season, he’s never seen a home crowd so active, loud, and consistent as the one at the Wells Fargo Center.

Bayless had 14 points on 5-9 shooting (2-5 3pt) in 31 minutes off the bench — the first game he did not start this season. He’s current averaging a career-high 11.9 points, while shooting a career-best 45.2-percent from beyond the arc.

With the win, the Sixers improved to 4-4. They have reached the .500 mark for the first time since November 15th, 2013.
