Watch: Tobias Harris connects with Maurice Harkless for an alley-oop

Orlando's young forwards run the fast break to perfection on this play.

As Orlando Magic's season winds down, they find themselves giving more minutes to their young players. That's partially a product of injuries to veterans like Arron Afflalo and Glen Davis, but also a conscious choice on Jacque Vaughn's part. Maurice Harkless and Tobias Harris have taken on larger roles at the expenses of Al Harrington and Hedo Türkoğlu.

The Harris and Harkless duo hooked up for one spectacular play against the San Antonio Spurs in Wednesday's loss.

In the clip, embedded above, Harris picks off an ill-advised Stephen Jackson pass--the veteran Spurs forward attempted to pass the ball between Harris' legs--and leads the fast break the other way. He eventually lobs the ball to Harkless for a one-handed finish.

The dish was one of Harris' five assists on the night, which total placed him second on the team behind Beno Udrih. And the jam was one of three for Harkless, who led the Magic with eight field goals and 18 points overall.
