Suns’ Shaq Harrison slams it home in closing minutes against 76ers
Phoenix Suns guard Shaquille Harrison wasn’t going down without a fight against the Philadelphia 76ers in the final minutes of the first round of the Summer League playoffs on Thursday.
With about 1:46 to go in the game, Harrison not only made a heads-up play on defense after a 76er slipped, but converted the steal into a thunderous rim rocker.

He wasn’t done putting his fingerprints on the game either.
Working back on defense, Harrison was disruptive yet again, making another steal to give the Summer Suns a chance to tie or take the lead.
It seems to be a normal sight to see Harrison excel on defense during Summer League play.
In the Suns previous game against the Orlando Magic, Harrison was a game changer on defense. He made five steals to along with 11 points, six assists and zero turnovers in the team’s 71-53 win.
Head coach Igor Kokoskov is taking notice as well, calling his defensive play “incredible.”
In 23 games with the Suns last season, Harrison averaged 6.6 points, 2.4 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 17 minutes per game.
