Bass catch of the day for Orlando Magic

Brandon BassBassWhat the Orlando Magic's Brandon Bass did on Friday against the Detroit Pistons had not been done by a player coming off the bench in 11 years.

Bass scored a career-high 27 points, making his first 11 field goals before missing his final attempt of the game late in the fourth quarter.

Had Bass made his final field goal attempt, he would have broken the team record for most field goals made in a game without a miss. Dwight Howard went 11-for-11 last season at Houston.

From the Elias Sports Bureau: Bass is the first player who did not start a game to make his first 11 field goal attempts since Kelvin Cato did it for the Houston Rockets against the Boston Celtics on Dec. 18, 1999.

The most field goals made in a game this season without a miss is 10 by Pau Gasol (Nov. 21 vs Warriors) and Anderson Varejao (Nov. 5 at 76ers).

In the first half, Bass was perfect from both the floor (8-8) and free throw line (4-4).

From the Elias Sports Bureau: Bass is the first Magic player to go at least 8-8 from the field in the first half of a game since Howard went 10-10 against the Philadelphia 76ers on April 14, 2007.

The 11 field goals made were also a career high for Bass, who had never made more than nine in a game prior to Friday.
