Watch: Tobias Harris notches 29 points in loss to Bobcats

New, comments

The Magic forward set a career-high with 29 points in Wednesday's defeat against the Bobcats. Harris has set a new career-high four times in 17 games with Orlando.

The Orlando Magic picked up another disheartening loss on Wednesday, blowing a 19-point lead to the Charlotte Bobcats, the league's worst team, and losing by a 114-108 final. Second-year forward Tobias Harris was one of Orlando's bright spots in the defeat, which also featured the best performance of Kyle O'Quinn's young career.

In 45 minutes, Harris shot 10-of-20 from the floor for 29 points, nine rebounds, six assists, a steal, and three rejections. The points and assists are new career-bests for the former Tennessee Volunteer. The highlight reel embedded above shows all of his points and assists.

Harris got off to a hot start, scoring 12 points on 4-of-6 shooting, with four boards and three assists, in the opening 12 minutes. He cooled as the game progressed, perhaps as a result of fatigue: Magic coach Jacque Vaughn played Harris the entire second half.

When the Magic acquired Harris from the Milwaukee Bucks on February 21st, Harris' career-high in scoring stood at 19 points. He has met or exceeded that figure five times in 17 games with Orlando.
