Re: Season of the tank!-2013-14 regular season
Mike Harris sat with coach Ty Corbin in the Jazz’s practice facility after final cuts last week. The coach told Harris he would be used at times at the power forward this season, and may matchup against bigger small forwards, such as Kevin Durant.
Harris, the last man to make the Jazz roster, didn’t expect that chance would come on opening night.
"He plays hard. He knows who he is. He’s not afraid of the physical part of the game," Corbin said. "A lot of guys will get up against a guy like Durant, one of the top guys in this league, and they back up and give them their way." Durant still managed to score 42 points while taking 24 foul shots.
"If you go back and read [Durant’s] lips after Mike fouled, he said, ‘You made me work tonight,’" point guard John Lucas III said
