Tobias Harris explains how Doc Rivers has helped Sixers succeed

USA Today


Article Summary:

The question now becomes: What is Rivers doing to get the most out of this team? Harris has been playing so well lately he was named the Eastern Conference’s Player of the Week. “I think it’s more what he gets out of the whole group, because I’m the type of player that my game can fall in line and whatever the coaches ask for me, I can get done. What he’s asking of this team is to play right away, move the basketball, play with another, use your teammates, really be a collective group.”

If one takes a look back at Rives’ success with the Los Angeles Clippers, where Harris had his best numbers under Rivers in the past, they have always had success on the offensive end of the floor. His system focuses on ball movement and playing together, and that is what is helping Harris and the Sixers flourish on that end. “I’ve always thought it’s easier for the players to attack when the ball is moving than when the ball is in one spot. It’s something that we talk about every day, our guys are buying into it.”

The Sixers are ninth in the league in assists, averaging 25.6 per game, and guys are playing for each other during the beginning part of this season.
