KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Tobias Harris showed a lot of heart.
The 76ers forward returned to the game in the fourth quarter after scary fall in Sunday’s Game 4 matchup against the Boston Celtics.
He originally left the game with 2 minutes, 40 seconds left in the third quarter with a left-eye laceration. He received stitches, was evaluated for a concussion and returned with 5:12 left in the game.
He suffered the injury when undercut while in the air defending on a play. His face smashed hard against the floor as he couldn’t react fast enough.
Harris was down on the floor for a couple of minutes, while several members of the Sixers staff attended to him, including head coach Brett Brown. Harris eventually walked off the court with a towel on his face and went straight to the locker room.
That appeared to take some life out of the Sixers.
