Taylor boosted by extended minutes

Chris Taylor feels his extended minutes have given him a boost of confidence heading into Saturday’s game against London Lions.

The 27-year-old has been restricted to only seven appearances so far this season after sustaining a wrist injury during pre-season, but has recently seen his court time increase since returning to full strength.

Taylor, who joined the Flyers in September from NBL Division One, admits he his still adapting to the intensity of the game in the top flight.

"There’s a lot less room for error in this league,” he told Bristol Flyers TV.

"I’m still getting used to the speed and physicality of the BBL and those extended minutes have really helped me with my confidence and get used to the rhythm of the game.”

Taylor has been averaging 12 minutes per game so far this season and had a season-high ten points against Worcester Wolves just two weeks ago.

With an important run of games on the way, Taylor is keen to continue reaping the rewards of a renewed self-belief and the confidence of Coach Kapoulas.

"We still have a very good chance of making the play-offs and even being a top four team, which has been our goal since the beginning of the season,” Taylor added.

“We just need to pick up one or two wins to get our confidence back and that will put us in good position.

"We’re happy to be back in front of our fans, and when it’s a sellout crowd, it’s just helps with our momentum."

"Just knowing that we have a sellout crowd behind us is a huge confidence boost.”

Tickets for Saturday's game against London Lions have completely sold out, but  just over 150 unreserved tickets remain for the visit of Glasgow Rocks on Saturday, February 10th.
