Despite another Detroit Pistons loss, their seventh in a row and 10th in their last 11, Andre Drummond continued his rise back to dominance after a sluggish start to the season. Drummond was an absolute beast, putting up 26 points and snagging 20 rebounds in 38 minutes, recording the NBA's first 20-20 this season.
It was Drummond's fourth straight double-double and eighth of the season. The 26 points and 20 rebounds were season highs for him.
Drummond downplayed the big night after the game, stating that it's "empty, man" and that he could score 40 points and it wouldn't mean anything without a win.
Whether or not some of these big Drummond games will start coinciding with wins remains to be seen (obviously he's not the problem). Drummond has three 20-20s in his career and each was in a loss.
He's remaining positive, though.
"You always have to be positive. Nothing lasts like this for too long. It's going to turn around for us."
Do you believe him?
Now your positive Drummond thoughts!
