Tobias Harris had a huge fourth quarter for the Philadelphia 76ers to push them over the Los Angeles Lakers at Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night.
Harris finished the contest vs. the 2020 NBA champions with 24 points, shooting 10-of-16 from the field and 2-of-4 from beyond the arc.

“It’s a big moment,” said Harris. “I think that was a big game for us, in general. For me, I just want to win. I know we let them back in it and I was a little frustrated. I wanted to just be calm, be relaxed in that moment, and get my shot off and live with the result. I was able to do that.”
Harris had seven points in the last quarter against the Lakers’ swarming defense. The Sixers took a 14-point lead (86-100) entering the last five minutes of the game, but Frank Vogel’s team got back into the contest with a 19-4 run.
