Harris did the bulk of his damage in the opening quarter, when he scored 21 points, grabbed three offensive rebounds and dished out two assists. (Ironically, it was the only quarter on the night that the Stampede outscored the D-Fenders). He continued to give them fits as the night wore on with some balanced scoring and it proved to be too much for the Stampede, who went on to lose by a final score of 133-to-124.
During the Showcase, there were reports that NBA teams were meeting with Harris in the intent of signing him to a 10-day contract. One of the teams interested: The Oklahoma City Thunder, who are in need of a scoring punch with their recent loss of Russell Westbrook. While we wait to see if any of that comes to fruition, it's hard to imagine the former Wolverine staying around the D-League for much longer. He was recently named D-League Player of the Week and through 11 games on the season, he's averaging 28.9 points, 6.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 2.3 steals on 47.1 percent shooting from the floor. He also finds himself as the fifth best player the D-League has to offer, according to the Prospect Watch list.
yay we stole him from the Thunder who were thinking about bringing him in
