Pratt’s Play of the Day (November 16)

Tobias Harris

With Joel Embiid in health and safety protocols and Ben Simmons still holding out, the bulk of Philadelphia’s offensive workload has fallen on Harris. While the Sixers are currently on a four-game losing streak, Harris has made the most of his opportunity as the No. 1 option. The Tennessee product has racked up 38+ DKFP in each of his last three games, including a huge 51.25 DKFP performance against the Pacers, in which he saw a season-high 36.3% usage rate. Tonight, Harris should continue to produce against a Jazz team that ranks 23rd in DKFP allowed to PFs.
