Nets’ Joe Harris praises team’s ‘luxury’ of shooters

NEW YORK — Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Harris has lasted on the Nets as long as he has because of his ability to shoot the three-ball. He has done that year in and year out, but he also acknowledges that while he doesn’t play as much as he used to during the Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving era, he knows that Brooklyn has enough shooting on the team to go around.

“Yeah, it’s definitely a luxury of this team,” Harris said after scoring 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting from the field and 3-of-6 shooting from three-point land in Friday’s 124-107 win over the Atlanta Hawks. Harris is now shooting 42.5% from behind the three-point line, including shooting 48.1% in the month of March. “A lot of space on the floor for primary ball handlers, facilitators, and then, you know, when the ball is moving, getting guys shots, it’s definitely a fun way to play,” Harris continued.

Brooklyn shot 15-of-33 (45.5%) from three-point range as a team and that is tied for the 14th-best three-point shooting performance by the team this season. Harris was one of three players to make at least three three’s as Mikal Bridges made five and Dorian Finney-Smith made four. “And you know, it’s an unselfish group. So, typically giving up good shots for great shots, making the extra pass. And you know, it’s always better to play that way,” Harris explained.
