Brooklyn Nets Joe Harris Top 5 Games
The best performances from the NBA's top 3-point shooter in 2018-19
Joe Harris continued to elevate his game in his third season in Brooklyn, leading the NBA in 3-point shooting percentage with a franchise record 47.4 mark. That followed a spotlight moment at All-Star Weekend as Harris edged Stephen Curry to win the 3-Point Contest. In a full-time starting role for the first time, Harris started all 76 games he played and tied for the team lead with 30.2 minutes per game. He also shot 50 percent overall and posted career highs in points (13.7), rebounds (3.8), and assists (2.4).
Here’s a look at Harris’ top five games of the season, in chronological order:
Nets at Warriors, November 10
Off to a blistering start, shooting 56.9 percent from 3-point range through 12 games, Harris continued against the defending champion Warriors, making 4-of-6 from deep and shooting 9-for-12 overall in scoring 24 points, at the time the second-biggest scoring night of his career.
Nets vs. Hornets, December 26
When Harris scooped up a Charlotte turnover and sprinted away for the game-winning basket it gave the Nets their ninth win in 10 games. It also capped a 27-point night in which Harris shot 11-for-14 overall, made 5-of-8 3-pointers and grabbed five rebounds. He made two game-tying 3-pointers in the final 90 seconds of regulation.
