Call his Joe Steady.
Joe Harris had a solid all-around performance for the Brooklyn Nets Tuesday, with seven points — including a big 3-pointer and an absolute circus shot at the rim — in the fourth quarter.
Better still, he played under control after showing some tendencies of late to get himself trapped in midair with no place to go with the ball.
Harris also put the clamps on Josh Hart, the Lakers’ young guard who was just 2-for-10 on the night and scored six points.
A solid effort from a guy who was out of the NBA less than three years ago.
He also spent much of the second half functioning as the center for the Brooklyn Nets, who countered the Los Angeles Lakers’ decision to play small by going even smaller.
But RHJ held his own, getting rebounds, helping to force James into five turnovers even as The King put up 36 points and making some clutch free throws in the final minute to help the Nets close the deal.
Did he get a little out of control at times? Yes. But his play since moving into the starting lineup 12 games ago has been getting better.
