Watch: Tobias Harris dishes an around-the-back pass

Harris isn't known for his playmaking skills, but the second-year forward made this terrific pass in Sunday's win over Philly.

Tobias Harris isn't a shy offensive player. The second-year forward has averaged 12 shot attempts per game since the Orlando Magic acquired him from the Milwaukee Bucks at the NBA trade deadline, trailing only Arron Afflalo and Jameer Nelson in that category over the same span. But in Sunday's win against the Philadelphia 76ers, Harris' best play wasn't a shot, but rather a pass.

In the video above, you'll see Harris dive to the rim from the top of the key as E'Twaun Moore handles on the right side of the floor. Moore delivers the ball to Harris as Harris approaches the rim. Once Philly defenders Lavoy Allen and Evan Turner converge on the Tennessee product, Harris fires a behind-the-back pass to Nikola Vučević, who had slipped behind Allen as Allen rotated. The play results in an easy slam for Vučević and brought Orlando to within four points early in the second period.

The assist was one of Harris' three on the day, matching a career-best for him. In his second start with Orlando, Harris also tallied 15 points, seven boards, and two blocks in 38 minutes.
