76ers' Tobias Harris Reflects on Battling Through Offensive Slump

Sixers forward staying in the moment amid offensive slump.

In recent weeks, one of the main storylines for the Philadelphia 76ers has been the up-and-down play of Tobias Harris. With Joel Embiid out, the veteran forward has been called on to lead the charge with Tyrese Maxey. While he's had some big games, there's also been some forgettable ones. 

Harris had a night to forget earlier this week against the New York Knicks. He finished with just two points in 26 minutes of action on 1-for-6 shooting. 

Before the Sixers took on the Milwaukee Bucks Thursday, Harris touched on his offensive struggles as of late. For him, the key thing has been staying in the moment. 

“I think the most beautiful thing about sports and the NBA and sports, in general, is just how many games we play and how you kind of really got to stay in the moment of it and move on to the next game and the next challenge that’s presented and make a few adjustments and be ready,” Harris said via Sixers Wire

The veteran forward is doing his best to keep himself in the proper headspace amid these recent lows. For Harris, all his focus is going toward figuring out ways to contribute in winning ways. 

You can’t get lost in it. You can’t get lost in the lows of it, really," Harris continued. "So for our team, our group, myself, it’s figuring out ways we can be better and figuring out ways to kind of adapt and do whatever you can contribute to winning.”

Harris ended up having a much-needed bounce-back performance in the Sixers' loss to the Bucks. He was the team's second-leading scorer with 15 points to go along with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block.
