Ramon Harris of Anchorage wasn’t having a very good month of December on the basketball court until last night.

The Fort Wayne Mad Ants forward broke out of his slump with a 12-point, 19-minute performance in a 129-114 home win over Reno in NBA D-League action.

The points and minutes were both month highs. He also matched his season high with five rebounds.

The 6-foot-7 shooter sank 4-of-6 3-pointers to raise his season percentage to .475 – that’s fourth best in the D-League and better than former NBA lottery pick Jimmer Fredette of Westchester.

Harris, of West High fame, was undrafted out of the University of Kentucky.

The 27-year-old is averaging 5.1 points in 14 games this season. He is 19-for-40 from 3-point land.

Harris had scored just eight points and was 1-for-7 on 3s in six previous games this month. Just when you think he’s slipping, he manages to gain his footing and knock down some shots to stay relevant for Fort Wayne.
