Andre Drummond continues to impress. While most of the area was enraptured with the Michigan football team and the Tigers on Saturday night the Pistons were moving to 2-1 on the exhibition season with a 99-88 victory at Brooklyn. Drummond led the Pistons with 15 points six rebounds three steals and one blocked shot — a performance that had New York-area writers buzzing about the potential of the second-year center from UConn. He is averaging 17.7 points and 8.6 rebounds in just under 24 minutes per game. He had three steals against the Nets and started the week with three blocked shots against Maccabi Haifa on Tuesday night. He is dunking his way to 67% shooting from the field. For opponents scarier still is that he is 9-for-12 (75%) from the free-throw line after shooting 37.1% as a rookie.
