Tobias Harris played in just his second game of the year Friday night against the Cavaliers.
Harris played in about 15 minutes and scored 10 points on 3-for-8 shooting. He added five rebounds and a 3-pointer, posting a -4 while he was in the game.
"It was real disappointing [to come back and have to go out again] for me," Harris said. "But I keep my spirits high, I pray on it and I knew everything would work out for the best. I had my head in the right place and just did my rehab and focused on this time. It's great to be back on the floor."
All in all it was a decent return to the court after missing nine games with a high ankle sprain on his leg after perviously missing the beginning of the season with an ankle sprain suffered in training camp. It has been a start-and-stop season for Harris, who had hoped to make a big impact this season before injuries knocked him out.
Harris did about as well you could hope considering all the time he had missed. It took him a while to get his feet under him, but in the fourth quarter he seemed to find his rhythm.
Harris was 2 for 3 in the fourth quarter, making a difficult jumper from the elbow after being fouled. He followed that up with a great corner 3-pointer that gave the Magic a four-point lead.
Earlier, it definitely seemed like he was getting his feet wet. He may not have been getting his legs completely under him and getting the same kind of lift off his jumper. He needed to find his rhythm.
That is something that will come.no comments
