Andre Drummond hit 4-of-11 shots and 4-of-4 free throws for 12 points, 19 rebounds (7 offensive), a career-high eight assists, two steals and two blocks in Thursday's win over the Hawks.

As Larry David might say, 'that's a prettay, prettay, pretty good line.' In fact, if it hadn't been for the poor shooting from the floor it would likely go down as one of his best games ever, especially given the fact he hit all four of his free throws. The career 40 percent shooter from the line came into this one shooting 61 percent from the stripe, and that number should be going up tomorrow. And after grabbing just seven boards on Nov. 29, Drummond has had at least 10 rebounds in all eight of his December games.

Andre Drummond had a rough night against the Warriors on Friday, making 2-of-9 from the field for eight points with 17 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes.

The Warriors defense kept him in check in a big way with all of his shots coming in the paint. Drummond was blocked four times in this game with Kevin Durant leading the way with three of those --JaVale McGee had the fourth. Drummond had only been blocked 0.8 times per game in his previous 24 outings, so big credit to the Dubs here. Drummond gets another rough matchup against the Celtics on Sunday, but he's fared well against them.
Dec 8 - 11:59 PM

Andre Drummond scored 27 points with 20 rebounds and six assists in a tough loss on Wednesday, shooting 12-of-16 from the field and 3-of-8 from the line in 37 minutes.

Nine of Detroit's past 10 games have come against teams on pace to make the playoffs, a tough stretch that's dropped their record to 14-10 -- still good enough for fourth place in the East. Drummond himself is thriving with an expanded offensive role. He's averaging 14.1 points, 15.0 boards, 1.7 steals and 1.3 blocks, and his 3.9 assists are a huge leap over his previous career-high (1.1). Even with the FT shooting caveat, he's been a top-30 value.

Andre Drummond scored 14 points with 11 rebounds, six assists, five steals and one block in 35 minutes before fouling out in a 108-103 loss to the 76ers on Saturday.

It was a treat to watch Drummond and Joel Embiid go at it, and of course Embiid pointed to the bench when he drew the sixth foul on Drummond. There was some trash talking with Embiid saying Drummond can't shoot, and Drummond taking a shot at Embiid not playing in back-to-backs. Drummond was also getting some treatment on his left shoulder in the second quarter, but it didn't affect him in the second half. Drummond should be ready to roll against the Spurs on Monday.
Dec 2 - 10:59 PM

Andre Drummond matched his career-high seven assists during a 109-91 loss to the Wizards on Friday, adding 14 points, 17 boards, one steal and four blocks.

Coach Stan Van Gundy wasn't kidding about Drummond creating this year with this being his fourth seven-dime game. In other news, he was 4-of-5 from the line in this game, so coach Scott Brooks didn't do a Hack-a-Dre like he did against Ben Simmons earlier this week. Drummond is up to 63.9 percent from the line in one of the coolest stories of the season, and of course he's starting to create some serious distance in rebounds with his 15.2 boards per game -- DeAndre Jordan has 13.8.
Dec 1 - 10:18 PM

Andre Drummond scored 13 points on 5-of-8 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block in 28 minutes.

Drummond was coming off an enormous game vs. the Celtics on Monday, which Stan Van Gundy said "might be the best game [Drummond] has played overall at both ends of the floor since I've been [in Detroit]." His improved free throw shooting enables SVG to keep him on the court in the fourth quarter, too, so fantasy owners haven't been burned by late-game benchings. It's all sunshine for Drummond's owners right now.
Nov 29 - 10:22 PM

Stan Van Gundy feels that Andre Drummond's improved free throw shooting this season is sustainable.

"I think it could get even higher if he got to the line more," SVG said of Drummond. "And having our franchise centerpiece on the floor in the fourth quarter — that changes everything." The second part of this quote is the most important point, as Drummond has been able to see a career-high 33.4 minutes per game this season due to the improved free throw shooting (61.8%) to go with averages of 14.4 points, 15.6 boards (career-high), 3.5 dimes (career-high), 1.5 steals and 1.2 swats per contest, which has been good enough for top-40 value in 9-cat leagues (top-15 when punting).
Nov 29 - 12:34 PM

Andre Drummond had a feast against Boston on Monday with 26 points, 22 rebounds, six assists, four steals and three turnovers in 40 minutes.

Drummond is playing with a new energy this season and improved confidence from the free throw line -- he hit 6-of-8 from the stripe in this one and was taunting the crowd after each make. Drummond is the first player to reach these totals in a game since Charles Barkley in 1990, and his strong play is a big reason why the Pistons are second place in the East. He should eat the Suns' frontcourt alive on Wednesday.
Nov 27 - 10:50 PM

Andre Drummond kept it going in Friday's impressive win over the Thunder, finishing with 17 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, and two blocks on 8-of-14 shooting.

The only drawback to Drummond's line is that he turned the ball over six times in his 37.5 minutes, an issue that has been an area of concern for him this season. After never averaging more than 1.9 turnovers per contest, Drummond entered Friday's game with a season average of 3.4 per outing. The turnovers have been especially problematic over his last five (5.4/game), so AD's owners in nine-cat leagues should probably be punting that category. The Pistons have asked him to do more playmaking, so that could certainly be a factor.

Andre Drummond (dental implant) and Avery Bradley (groin tightness) will play Friday against the Thunder.

Both players missed practice on Wednesday, but it appears that was only precautionary. Drummond has been playing at a high level over the first five weeks of the season. He is currently averaging 13.5 points, a league-leading 15.3 rebounds and a career-high 3.4 assists, to go along with 1.5 steals and 1.2 blocks. Drummond is also shooting 61.5 percent from the free-throw line, far above his career average of 39.1 percent.
Nov 24 - 12:23 PM

Andre Drummond (dental implant) and Avery Bradley (groin tightness) did not practice on Wednesday, but both are expected to play Friday against the Thunder.

Drummond might not be able to gorge himself at Thanksgiving after the dental implant, but it doesn't sound like he's in any danger of missing Friday's game. Bradley's injury is slightly more concerning, but it sounds like his absence from Wednesday's practice was more precautionary than anything else. Check back for another update following Friday morning's shootaround.
Nov 22 - 1:42 PM

Andre Drummond hit just 3-of-7 shots and 2-of-6 free throws on his way to just eight points, a season-low eight rebounds, zero blocks and six turnovers in Monday's ugly loss to the Cavaliers.

The Pistons shut Drummond down after just 25 minutes in the blowout and this will not only go down as his worst game of the season, but one of the worst of his career. He's also really struggling with turnovers, committing six in each of his last two games, and is averaging 5.0 turnovers a game over his last six. Drummond had 20 points, 16 rebounds and two blocks on Sunday, so don't panic over Monday's disaster.
Nov 20 - 9:20 PM

Andre Drummond hauled in nine offensive rebounds on Sunday, finishing with 16 boards, 20 points, four assists, two steals and one block in 33 minutes.

Drummond left in the third quarter in obvious pain, apparently due to a left elbow/forearm injury, but he looked fine upon returning. It's possible he banged his funny bone and we'll leave him off the injury report prior to Monday's game vs. Cleveland.
Nov 19 - 9:35 PM

Andre Drummond scored 11 points with 15 rebounds, five assists, one steal and three blocks in 35 minutes against the Pacers during a 107-100 loss on Friday.

This was a bad loss for the Pistons with a 22-point lead during the third quarter. As for Drummond, that makes it 15 straight games with 12-plus boards, which puts him one shy of Moses Malone's record of 16 straight games with 12-plus boards to start an NBA season. While Drummond's free throw shooting has dropped from that absurd 77.8 percent he had as of Nov. 7, at least he's been at 50 percent or better in each of his last four games. Drummond is a playing big minutes and has a chance at a 20-15 in almost any matchup.
