All of the talk so far in the new NBA season has centered around superstars either starting to gel together or getting set to spend some time on the bench watching on due to injuries. With that going on, little attention has been given to the Detroit Pistons’ hottest man of the moment, Andre Drummond.
For the third game in a row, he posted 20 points and 20 boards, grabbing 25 points and 20 rebounds in their win on Saturday over the Brooklyn Nets. The 113-109 win takes the team to 3-4 on the season, and it also saw Nets point guard Kyrie Irving record his first triple-double (20-11-10) of the new campaign. Only six of his points came in the last three quarters, leading to the Pistons holding them off.
