Harris collects season high rebounds, assists against old team
The 28-year-old forward collected season highs in rebounds and assists to offset an off-night shooting as the Iowa Energy fell 95-94 to the undefeated Fort Wayne Mad Ants in NBA D-League action.
He grabbed eight boards and handed off four helpers in 24 minutes coming off the bench. He scored five points on 2-of-7 shooting.
Harris, of West High fame, won a D-League championship with Fort Wayne in 2014 and got back to the finals with the team in 2015, when he scored a career-high 30 points in Game 1.
He was traded last season to Iowa. The first time he faced his former team he made a 3-pointer at the buzzer to win the game.
Harris has one of the most impressive resumes for an Alaska basketball player – first winning four state titles in high school, then suiting up for Kentucky and now playing in his fifth season in the D-League.
His 1,371 career points is No. 1 among Alaskans to play in the D-League.
