Philadelphia 76ers small forward Tobias Harris started off aggressively in Tuesday’s game against his former team, the Los Angeles Clippers.
Harris showed off his athleticism and vertical by throwing down a nasty dunk over Clippers big man Montrezl Harrell.

Harris turned down an $80 million extension offer from the Clippers because he wanted to bet on himself, prompting the team to trade him instead of losing him in free agency. However, the gamble paid off for Harris, as he signed the richest deal in Sixers history this past summer.
The swingman signed a five-year, $180 million contract with the Philly franchise.
Tobias Harris came into Tuesday averaging 19.1 points and 6.6 rebounds per game for the Sixers this 2019-20 season. He is also shooting 47.3 percent from the field, 36.7 percent from beyond the arc and 80.2 percent from the free-throw line.
The Sixers are 33-21 on the season, while the Clippers are 37-16 this year. Both teams are well on their way to qualifying for the playoffs this 2020.
