At the beginning of the season, the Philadelphia 76ers needed Tobias Harris to be a gloried role player with a new big three of Joel Embiid, James Harden, and Tyrese Maxey. To Harris’ credit, he was able to adjust to the lesser offensive role.

During the month of October, Harris averaged 13.1 points on 40.9 percent shooting from the 3-point line. In terms of performing his role, he did exactly what was asked of him, but it was certainly a gross underuse of his skills by the Sixers.

That has changed during the month of November thus far. Due to the injury suffered by Harden, Harris has been tasked to carry a heavier offensive burden and has done so with great success thus far.

The Philadelphia 76ers have benefited from Harris’ hot offensive start in November.

During the month of November, Harris has averaged 18.6 points on 42.3 percent shooting from the 3-point line. It should also be noted that Harris’ minutes have jumped from 32.5 minutes per game in October to 36.2 minutes per game in November thus far.

Harris’ production in November is closer to what his production has been during his tenure with Philly with the exception of a slightly more efficient 3-point shot. Certainly Sixers fans don’t mind the improved 3-point shooting.

With Harden out, it allows Harris to peform his normal role as a second or third option. This is good for Harris once Harden does return as he will have some of his rhythm of being more than just a role player moving forward, which can only benefit Philly.

The Philadelphia 76ers can not only benefit from Harris’ hot start in November right now but in the future as well.

Next. It’s time for Maxey to establish his stardom. dark
