Tobias Harris has entered a different stratosphere. The Orlando Magic forward double-doubled with 27 points (11-of-15 filed goals and 2-of-2 free throws) and 10 rebounds. He filled it up three 3-pointers, two assists and a steal in 31 minutes. He's clearly benefited from his move to Florida.
In the three games since the trade, Harris is averaging 17.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1 steal, and 1.3 blocks while playing 28.7 minutes off the bench. He also hit two threes in those games. He's a must-own player for his cross-category heroics.
Moe Harkless is still putting up serviceable lines as a starter. In 29 minutes of play Friday, he scored 13 points, including three 3-pointers, to go with four rebounds, three assists and a steal

Season Series: Tonight in Orlando; April 1 in Houston
The Magic had another opportunity to win -- something that has seemed so fleeting in this struggle of a season with a bunch of young players filling roles that may be above their pay grade for the moment. Orlando led Houston 100-98 with five minutes to play. The team was rolling offensively all night and seemed finally to get some stops.
Houston though had the finishing kick...

In the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal, magic and fantasy are all around you (expelliarmus!), but not far from there at the Amway center a different kind of fantasy Magic is taking place, and they play a lot uglier brand of basketball. Still there is fantasy goodness to be had here and Friday night Tobias Harris scored a career high 27 points with 10 rebounds, 2 assists...
