Monday’s Magic Word

John Schuhmann of NBA.com: “Last week, we kind of downplayed Tobias Harris’ solid Orlando debut. And then he went and shot 27-for-36 (5-for-9 from 3-point range) in his next three games, averaging 22.0 points and 7.7 rebounds.” Al Harrington, fully recovered from a staph infection in his right knee, has emerged as the backup center …
