Tobias Harris discusses successful road trip for Sixers after win over Wolves

The Philadelphia 76ers wrapped up a five-game road trip on Tuesday with a 117-94 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Philadelphia finished the trip at 4-1 and they were able to accomplish a lot during the trip.

They began the trip with a blowout win over the Miami Heat, took their only loss on the trip to the Dallas Mavericks on the second night of a back-to-back, then rallied to beat the Milwaukee Bucks before wins over the Indiana Pacers and the Wolves to end the trip. All four wins were impressive considering they had five games in seven nights and two back-to-backs.

“Just a great trip,” Tobias Harris told reporters. “Go to Miami and get a victory, having a lot of games in a short period of time, guys stepping up. Just stepping up to the plate and being ready and being able to give us a great effort and just give us a boost in the lineup.”

The Sixers had to win games short-handed as well. They were missing Harris and PJ Tucker in the win over the Pacers and then they beat the Wolves while missing James Harden. The fact that Philadelphia was able to win while short-handed and also win games in different styles says a lot about this team.

“A lot of guys that contributed throughout this whole trip and that says a lot about our team and really for us to be ready in the playoffs,” Harris added. “We know who’s staying ready and being locked in.”

Philadelphia will now return home for two games before another road-heavy stretch. Beginning with a March 15 matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers, they will play six of seven games on the road and this road trip was helpful for them to get on the right track.
