Andre Drummond, Pistons

Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond has the fifth most games with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds since 1983, according to Basketball Reference.

Drummond recorded his 32nd game with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds on Monday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Only Dwight Howard, Charles Barkley, Hakeem Olajuwon and Shaquille O’Neal have registered more 20-20 games than Drummond since 1983.

Andre Drummond currently leads the NBA in rebounds. He’s averaging 15.4 rebounds per game and has grabbed a total of 1,034.

The 25-year-old big man has 58 double-doubles on the season — first in the NBA as well. Along with being a rebounding monster, Drummond is putting up 17.4 points per game while shooting 53.1 percent from the field.

The Pistons are trying to make the playoffs this season for the first time since 2016. Detroit is 36-34 on the year, which is good for sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings. Drummond and fellow All-Star power forward Blake Griffin form an elite front court that no team wants to face in the postseason.

Detroit suffered a bad loss on Monday to the lowly Cavs. Griffin didn’t play due to rest. Drummond had a great game, but the rest of his teammates didn’t show up.

The Pistons will look to get back in the win column on Thursday against the Phoenix Suns.
