Do not ask me what the ceiling is for Gary Harris. We’re already past what I thought it was when the Denver Nuggets drafted him, and he’s not showing any signs of slowing down. Tonight he dropped 27 points on the Charlotte Hornets like he was seasoning some steak with shades on. Harris does a little bit of everything, but mostly what he does is fit in next to Nikola Jokic in perfect harmony. Two of the best members of the 2014 draft class are completely in sync on the court and - now that they have once again been given the freedom to work their magic together - are proving exceptionally tough to stop.
Also, here’s a Did You Know: Gary Harris has the third-highest win share total from the 2014 draft despite getting Shaw’ed his rookie year. Or to put it in a more immediate way:

As I try to say every year: thanks Chicago! Check out tonight’s highlights below.
How high would Gary Harris go in a 2014 re-draft?
This poll is closed
Top-10, alongside players like Rodney Hood and Marcus Smart
Top-5, with Andrew Wiggins and Aaron Gordon
Behind just Jokic and whoever you like second (Clint Capela maybe)
Ahead of Capela and Wiggins and the rest, silver medal behind Jokic
#2 is as high as he goes. Calm down, Garrison members, but take a bow anyway
