If Tobias Harris is looking for good news from Tuesday night’s game, he needn’t look beyond the final score, with the Philadelphia 76ers defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder 109-105. For the bad news, we’ll direct your attention to a possession in the fourth quarter.

Harris, working off of a screen from Joel Embiid, dribbled to the free-throw line and took what was essentially an open jump shot. He did not make the jumper, nor did he come particularly close, shooting an airball. Nicolas Batum and Cam Payne, though, scrambled to keep the possession alive for Philadelphia. Batum kicked the ball out to Embiid, who passed it to Harris — who had another clean look at the hoop, this time from three-point range.

Fortunately for Harris, this wasn’t an airball. Unfortunately for him, it wasn’t really any better.

NBA Twitter had a lot to say about that rough sequence, with several people noting that these aren’t exactly uncommon for the veteran forward.

Despite the pair of brutal shots and his struggles overall, Harris had a decent game and was particularly strong in the first three quarters.

He finished with 18 points and while he was only 5-for-14 from the field, he was 5-for-8 on three-pointers.
