Before the break, Paolo Banchero was on his way to another good performance against the Sixers (11 points, 4/8 shooting, including 0/3 from 3), but then Tobias Harris decided to take care of his business ( PJ Tucker and especially Georges Niang, even with James Harden) and that left the teenager from Orlando in big trouble.
