Tobias Harris is going to make life miserable for Moe Harkless' fantasy owners. Harris is finally getting minutes -- 31 tonight -- and he's producing. Harris scored 23 points on 9-of-12 shooting with a three-pointer and added six rebounds, two assists and two steals.
Since joining the Magic, Harris is averaging 15 points, 6.5 rebounds, an assist and two blocks. He's an "add" at this point.
Harkless continued to struggle. The rookie started, played 28 minutes and finished with 12 points (5-of-7 shots with a three-pointer) and four rebounds.
Recently acquired reserve point guard Beno Udrih didn't shoot well (3-of-9 field goals), but made all seven of his free throws on the way to 14 points, eight assists, two rebounds and two steals.
In his two previous games, Udrih put up averages of 7 points, 8 assists, 2.5 rebounds, and a steal. As long as Jameer Nelson is out, Udrih has value.

Way way waaaay back in the day, like in early November back in the day, I told you to go ahead and grab yourself some Tobias Harris. At that time it looked like he would start at small forward for the Bucks and possibly have a breakout fantasy season but noooooooooooooo. Instead he farted directly on your pillow and you launched him faster than you could get out your deodorizer!...
Less than a year after leaving the Orlando Magic, in a trade to the Lakers, Dwight Howard’s number 12 is already in use and by Tobias Harris no less. Yes, the franchise player and beloved leader of the Magic for seven years, has already lost his number. Instead of going into the rafters one day, Magic management has given him the ultimate slap in the face and showed him that...
Beno Udrih came to Orlando refreshed.
His time in Milwaukee was a bit of a mixed bag. He averaged 6.7 points per game playing 18.4 minutes per game in 39 games with Milwaukee. His playing time witht he Bucks was inconsistent and Udrih expressed some frustration upon arriving in Orlando.
To him, playing for the Magic and in a new city is a new opportunity for him, as he told...
Tobias Harris started the season fairly strong, putting together some decent lines in November, but then fell out of the Bucks rotation. ”Oh Tobias, you blow-hard!” It looked like Harris’ career might be stalled. ”I got my hands on some money. I can’t say how or when … or where my wedding ring is, but my purse overfloweth.” But with a trade to the Magic right...
Acquired by the Orlando Magic as part of the Dwight Howard trade, forward Al Harrington has yet to play for his new team after developing a staph infection from arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus. He proceeded to have four surgeries over ten weeks to clean out the area which left collateral damage. After hearing he might not play again, the fourteen-year-veteran made...
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...

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Players were high-fiving and telling jokes in the giddy postgame locker room.
It was a rare and pleasant atmosphere for the Orlando Magic, especially on the road.
Arron Afflalo and Tobias Harris scored 16 points apiece and the Magic snapped a 10-game road losing streak with a 98-84 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday.

Grasping on to anything positive is a must to survive this kind of a season. The Magic have the second worst record in the league and are already facing the realization that things will get worse as the team continues its rebuilding after this summer's trade. Youth has its ups and downs.
When the Magic play a game like they did Tuesday night against the 76ers -- together...
A seemingly sarcastic 76ers fan is selling two tickets to Tuesday night's contest against the Orlando Magic for $1 million.
That's right; $500,000 apiece to sit in the upper levels of the Wells Fargo Center and enjoy some pretty bad basketball. Of course, there are seats available for $0.99 all over StubHub, but this is the deal of a lifetime.
Only Important Injuries:
- Jameer Nelson out (stock up for Beno Udrih, E’Twaun Moore, Mo Harkless, Tobias Harris)
- Al Jefferson doubtful; Paul Millsap questionable (stock up for Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Gordon Hayward)
- Kyrie Irving doubtful (stock up for Shaun Livingston, Dion Waiters, Tristan Thompson, Wayne Ellington)
