Bucher: Blame Bayless Breakout for Benchings

In his "3 Seconds" column in ESPN the Magazine, Ric Bucher writes Lawrence Frank's decision to bench Devin Harris--and Vince Carter--for the second half of the Celtics game was not just about Boston's 18-2 run at the start of that game. Bucher says Jerryd Bayless' 23-point outburst two nights earlier in a Nets' loss to the Blazers was as much a factor. Bucher adds Harris' "staunch defense" has taken a hit this season.
