Harris offered 25 points (8-18 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 38 minutes in Monday's 112-109 loss to the Pelicans. Andre Drummond (ribs) returned to the lineup and logged a robust 39 minutes, but Harris still paced the Pistons in scoring for a second consecutive contest. The versatile forward has boosted his shooting percentage from December's 43.6 percent to 46.6 percent over the first four games of January, and he's drained six of the 11 three-point tries he's put up in the last two contests. Still only 25 years of age, Harris appears to be entering his prime in what is already his seventh season, posting career bests in scoring (18.4) and three-point shooting percentage (43.8) over his first 39 games in the process.
Harris mustered 27 points (8-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 8-11 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one steal across 33 minutes in Saturday's 108-101 win over the Rockets. Harris took on an increased offensive role with Andre Drummond (ribs) sidelined for the second time in three games, leading to his fourth effort of over 20 points in the last six. The seven-year veteran also brought in his highest amount of boards since Dec. 12, posted his best shooting night in the last five contests, and logged a season-high amount of visits to the charity stripe in what was an excellent all-around performance. Harris is enjoying a solid season even when Drummond is active, but his value increases that much more when the latter is off the floor.
Harris scored 19 points (6-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT) while adding six rebounds and two assists in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 111-104 loss to the Heat. The streaky forward may be entering another cold spell -- after scoring at least 21 points in three straight games around Christmas while shooting 63.2 percent (12-for-19) from three-point range, Harris now has just 31 points total in his last two while going 0-for-6 from beyond the arc. Friday's road tilt against a Sixers squad that's been stingy against power forwards doesn't set up as a good spot for him to bounce back.
Harris provided 30 points (10-11 FG, 7-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 29 minutes during a 107-83 win over the Pacers on Tuesday. Harris reached the 30-point mark for the fourth time this season and drained a season-high seven three-pointers in the incredibly efficient display. He scored a whopping 21 points in the first quarter and had the game not been a blowout from the start, Harris could have had himself a huge game. Harris has now scored at least 20 points in consecutive games for the first time since November.
Harris scored 24 points (7-16 FG, 3-6 3PT, 7-10 FT) to go with three rebounds, five assists and one block across 41 minutes during Friday's 104-101 win against New York. Over his previous five games, Detroit's leading scorer had struggled to the tune of 10.8 points per game. On Friday, Harris broke out of his mini offensive slump with 24 points. After shooting 32.3 percent from the floor prior to Friday, the guard found his shot by sinking 43.7 percent of his shots against New York. Now, averaging a career-high 17.7 points, Harris will look to build upon his breakout performance when Detroit takes on Indiana on Tuesday.
