The dispute comes after Lillard had one of the best games of his season, scoring 51 points in a 124-121 win over the Philadelphia 76ers Sunday night. He hit three clutch three-pointers in the final minutes to put his team ahead.
It was a better representation of "Dame Time," a reference to his production in big moments, compared to his struggles Saturday night against the Los Angeles Clippers. Lillard missed a pair of key free throws late, leading to a 122-117 loss.
Bayless seemingly planned to focus on this aspect for his show, but Lillard wasn't having it.
