Leuer scored 20 points (5-7 FG, 10-10 FT) while adding eight rebounds and one block across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 98-91 victory over the Mavericks. After just 17 minutes two games ago, Leuer has received plenty of run the last two games and taken advantage of it, recording 35 points and 19 rebounds over that span. The Pistons played just nine men in Wednesday's victory, meaning there are more than enough minutes to go around on a nightly basis, which bodes well for Leuer's ability to sustain this production. He doesn't need many opportunities to make an impact on the offensive end as he had just seven shots from the field on night where he posted the second-highest point total on the team.
Leuer scored 20 points (9-17 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding three rebounds, three assists and one steal across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 121-102 victory over the Lakers. Leuer has had ups and downs all year in terms of point production, but he seems to have found a rhythm lately. He's averaging 13.3 shots per game over the last four, and as long as he keeps seeing minutes like he did Wednesday night, he can keep producing double-digit point totals on the regular. A comfortable starter, Leuer could see his stock rise over the next few outings with consistent shooting and playing time.
Leuer scored 24 points (8-16 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while adding four rebounds and one assist across 35 minutes in Friday's 116-108 win over the Timberwolves. After shooting 16 percent and scoring eight points over his last two games, Leuer responded by shooting 50 percent en route to his highest scoring output on the season. We'll see if he is able to keep the momentum going Saturday against the Pacers in the second game of a back-to-back set.
Leuer produced two points (1-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four rebounds and three assists across 17 minutes during a 118-98 win over the Pelicans on Wednesday. Leuer was not effective Wednesday, marking the third straight game in which he scored in single-digits. In that stretch, he has managed a combined total of 16 points. Leuer only received 17 minutes, one of his lowest totals of the season. He will have a hard time being productive if he continues to receive such minutes. We'll see if he can get it turned around against the Timberwolves on Friday.
Leuer will draw the start at power forward for Monday's game against the Kings, Jake Chapman of Pistons.com reports. After missing five games with a bruised knee, Leuer returned to the floor Saturday and played 25 minutes, posting 10 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks. Coach Stan Van Gundy apparently feels good about the 27-year-old's performance, and has re-inserted him back into the starting five.
