Tobias Harris

The Sixers were officially eliminated from the Playoffs today after being swept by the Boston Celtics in convincing fashion. While the team has a plethora of issues they need to deal with this offseason, Tobias Harris is certainly one of them.

Before getting into that, Harris did suffer an incredibly scary fall in game four and is currently being tested for a concussion, I do hope that he’s going to be okay after that.

Before the Playoffs began, he was actually playing pretty well. Averaging 21.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists on 46.5 percent shooting inside of the bubble, Harris was one of the Sixers featured shooters.

His perimeter play was consistent and although having him as one of your only major shooters is a big frightening, he was certainly proving he was capable being that guy.

Coming into game four against the Celtics, Harris was averaging 14.3 points and 11.0 rebounds per game on 33.3 percent shooting. The most shocking revelation from the first three games was that Harris could not hit a single three-pointer, going 0 for 10.

For a guy making $180 million to make threes, that’s a pretty tough sell.

In game four he played up to the standard that we had become accustomed to, scoring 20 points on 58.3 percent shooting, while also knocking down a pair of three-pointers.
