Per the Denver Post:
“It felt good,” Harris said of the shot. “I knew it was going in.”
Harris’ first-career buzzer-beater was the latest signature moment in a terrific fourth season in which he has morphed into Denver’s leading scorer (17.4 points per game), maintained his defensive prowess on the perimeter (1.9 steals per game) and blossomed as a more vocal leader.
“I knew (Westbrook) was running at me,” Harris said. “But I was just focused on hitting the shot.”
