SAN FRANCISCO – The way his Philadelphia 76ers are winning, coach Doc Rivers sees no reason to discuss the trade deadline.
Tobias Harris hit a go-ahead jumper with 3:44 to play, scored another basket on the next possession and finished with 25 points and 13 rebounds to help the Sixers hold off the Golden State Warriors 108-98 on Tuesday night.
“My attitude is not to get the highlights, get the praise, it’s to get the win,” Rivers said.
Harris also converted a free throw on Draymond Green's technical foul with 2:47 remaining.
Rivers likes how Harris has improved from game to game.
“What I liked about his game tonight, he didn't force it, he kind of just let the game come to him,” Rivers said. “And he made plays, not just with his shot but with the pass. Played phenomenal defense.”
Ben Simmons added 22 points and eight rebounds for the Sixers, who pulled off their second consecutive road win after a 101-100 victory at New York on Sunday. The Eastern Conference leaders improved to 31-13 with their ninth victory in 10 games.
“As a group, we've won nine out of 10 games, the guys are playing good basketball — no need to talk about it,” Rivers said about Thursday's deadline.
