Tobias Harris finished Detroit's season-ending loss on Sunday with 23 points (8-of-14 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), 13 rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.
Harris averaged 11.7 points on 40.6 percent shooting in his first three games of the series, and tonight's renewed aggression proved to be too little, too late for Detroit. The Pistons will be hoping that Harris' playoff struggles motivate him this summer, as he's a key part of their future with a guaranteed $48 million coming over the next three seasons.

Tobias Harris scored 13 points with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

He was a no-show in the first half and he has been quiet in this postseason. In his previous two, Harris only averaged 11.0 points, 9.0 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals. He did get some run at center tonight because of Andre Drummond's free throw woes. Harris should be in play for DFS in Game 4.

Tobias Harris said that he'll be entering Wednesday's Game 2 against the Cavs with a must-win mentality.

"This one's a must-win for us coming up," Harris said. "That's our mindset. We know what they're capable of and how they can get hot and get on a run. We have to be at our best for that." The Pistons nearly pulled off an upset during Game 1, but when Cavs' head coach Tyronn Lue deployed a small ball lineup featuring Kevin Love at the five, the Pistons did not have an effective counter. Harris also struggled to contain LeBron James, so he could lose some minutes to Stanley Johnson during Game 2.

Tobias Harris was held to nine points on 4-of-11 shooting during Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Cavs, but rounded out his stat line with 10 boards, two assists, two steals, one block, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 40 minutes.

Harris struggled on the offensive end with LeBron James serving as his primary defender, and he could be in for a rough first-round series having to deal with LBJ whenever he's on the court. Stan Van Gundy said after the game that he regretted not playing Stanley Johnson more, so Harris' minutes could take a hit during Game 2 with Johnson set to see some more floor time.

Tobias Harris is resting on Wednesday against the Cavs.

It's just rest for Harris, who did not miss any games since suiting up for the Pistons. He'll be good for the postseason and after a fairly seamless transition to his new team.
Apr 13 - 6:46 PM

Tobias Harris scored 21 points with seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

He was Detroit's best player in this big win. Coach Scott Skiles kept changing Harris' role in Orlando, but coach Stan Van Gundy has put him in a great spot in his offense with a consistent role. Harris should be a top-50 player the rest of the way with his high floor.
Apr 2 - 11:08 PM

Tobias Harris scored 17 points with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer vs. the Thunder on Monday.

He started off hot but cooled down significantly in the second half. Harris finished 6-of-14 from the field, but hit his only 3-pointer and hit all four of his free throws. Harris was coming off a 20-point, 10-rebound performance, so he needs to be locked into all lineups even though the Pistons play just two more times this week.
Mar 29 - 10:58 PM

Tobias Harris scored 21 points with 10 rebounds, five assists, one block and one 3-pointer against the Hawks on Saturday.

It's the first 20-10-5 line of the year and fourth of his career. Harris has been as advertised with his new team, averaging 16.2 points, 5.9 boards, 2.7 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.2 treys on 47.5 percent from the field in his previous outings with the Pistons. He'll be a very interesting player next year with a whole offseason under coach Stan Van Gundy.
Mar 26 - 11:01 PM

Tobias Harris played well vs. his former team on Wednesday, posting 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting with four rebounds, three assists, two blocks, one 3-pointer and zero turnovers.

The Pistons are now 11-5 with Harris in the starting lineup, a 68.8 win percentage that's well above their 48.2 win percentage prior to starting him. The surge has Detroit on the cusp of a playoff spot, though they still face stiff competition from the Bulls and Wizards. Expect Harris to continue playing at a top-60 level down the stretch.
Mar 23 - 11:21 PM

Tobias Harris bounced back on Wednesday against the Hawks with 19 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He had his worst game of the season on Monday with eight points. Harris is getting some run at both forward spots, but he's predominately been the power forward in most lineups. He's been a fifth-round player since the break for owners in standard leagues.
Mar 16 - 10:16 PM

Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy is extremely happy with what he's seen out of Tobias Harris so far.

Harris is averaging 16.9 points, 5.6 boards, 2.4 assists, and 1.4 three-pointers per game with the Pistons and his head coach is happy with what he's seen so far. "He’s a really smart guy," Van Gundy said. "He’s got a great temperament. He’s a good team guy." Harris is coming off his worst game as a Piston on Monday, but he's still worth a nightly start in all fantasy leagues.

Tobias Harris made 3-of-10 from the field for eight points with one rebound, two assists and one turnover against the Wizards on Monday.

It's by far his worst game with the Pistons. Harris scored at least 14 points in his previous 12 games with the team while this was the first time he was under 35 percent from the field, too. He'll be fine.
Mar 14 - 11:59 PM

Tobias Harris scored 21 points on 8-of-12 from the field with eight rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers against the 76ers on Saturday.

Coach Stan Van Gundy called him an 18-20 point scorer and he's been just that. In his last five games, Harris averaged 18.8 points, 6.6 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.6 treys. He's fit in very nicely in the new system and the adjustment period seemingly was overnight. Expect Harris to flirt with top-50 value going forward.
Mar 12 - 10:30 PM

Tobias Harris scored 19 points with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.

He's been fairly consistent and has carved out a nice role of around 35 minutes per night. In his last five, Harris averaged 16.6 points, 6.6 boards, 3.2 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.4 treys on 51.7 percent from the field. He should flirt with top-50 value going forward.
Mar 9 - 11:54 PM

Stan Van Gundy said that it's been "easy to insert" Tobias Harris into the rotation in Detroit.

"He has been easy to insert with the other guys," said Van Gundy. "I mean, he’s got an offensive game where he’s really efficient: He scores without having to shoot the ball or try to score every time he’s got it." Since joining the Pistons, Harris has emerged as a top-50 player, and he should have no trouble closing out the year as a steady mid-round asset as one of the primary scoring options in Detroit.
