As Cleveland Cavaliers lose games, rookie Manny Harris wins more minutes
CLEVELAND, Ohio — With six whopping games of playing experience under his belt, the game is finally, at long last, starting to slow down a little for Manny Harris.
At least on one side of the court.
“It did a lot on the defensive end,” Harris said after the Cavaliers fell to Chicago on Wednesday. “On the offensive end, I just had to slow down a little bit. . . . Offensively, I have to continue to be patient.”
The undrafted rookie guard from Michigan will have time to work on his patience. Cavaliers coach Byron Scott activated Harris for the 88-83 loss to the Bulls, and Harris played a season-high 21 minutes while scoring six points on 2-of-7 shooting.
The player who has seen action in just two of the past 12 games and has played a total of 67 minutes in the NBA is about to get his chance to see if he can figure out the offensive flow of the game. Scott said he plans to stick with lineup changes he injected Wednesday, despite the Cavaliers’ sixth loss in a row.
