Philly’s Top Five

What Makes Philly, "Philly"

Sixers’ Tobias Harris: ‘I pride myself on doing things to help us win’

2 min read

The Philadelphia 76ers are a supremely talented team that has title aspirations for the 2019-20 season. In order to do so, they will need contributions from everybody in order to get it done.

That means working hard in the gym every day, not straying from the path, and doing the little things in games in order to get wins. The little things sometimes mean getting a big stop, setting a screen to get a teammate open, and sometimes it means scoring late in games.

For Tobias Harris, he’s willing to do whatever it takes to win games.

“I pride myself on doing all of the things to help us win games,” Harris said. “If we go out there and we play the way we need to play defensively and offensively to win a game, all of the other stuff doesn’t matter. That’s my biggest focus game after game.”

The Sixers have done a lot of that lately as they have won eight of their past nine and they will head out on the road to face the Washington Wizards on Thursday looking to extend that strong play.

Harris has been a big part of that as he has taken on more of a scoring role for the Sixers. Being the main scoring option late down the stretch for a team that has a chance to win a championship is something that Harris has always wanted.

“It’s always something that I’ve wanted throughout my whole career,” he said. “Coach obviously put the rock in my hands a lot this year, especially in the fourth quarter, and there are things I work on day after day too. To be efficient and down the stretch of the fourth quarter so those are things I can continue to get better at. There are things I can continue to progress on that end.”

Harris and the Sixers tipoff with the Wizards at 7:00 p.m. EST from the Capital One Arena on Thursday.
