Tobias Harris has been more vocal and emotional during the Orlando Magic's recent games and teammates and coaches have noticed that the young forward is taking a larger talking role.

"I just think for me being a player that I am, being the person that I am, it's just something that I have to do," Harris said.

"I have to be vocal for our team. I look at myself as a guy on this team who's going to go out and play as hard as anybody on the court. With that being said, I want to be vocal and be energetic towards my team and make sure they're bringing the same amount of energy."

The Magic have lost 12 of their last 13 games and Jacque Vaughn has pulled Harris aside to tell the 21-year-old he must play with more edge.

"He knows that I'm the type of guy who wants to win as bad as anybody," Harris said.
