Andre Drummond had two straight double-double games and led the Los Angeles Lakers in scoring in one of them. However, he struggled with scoring in the last two games as he had 3 and 4 respectively.
After the win against the Charlotte Hornets, the 27-year-old center admitted that he is still adjusting to his new team. “Like I said earlier, I’m still trying to figure it out too,” Drummond said. “Offensively it’s probably the worst I’ve played in my career I’m still trying to figure it out here. I’m not allowing to take me out of my game.
“I know why I’m here, which is to help this team defensively. Offensively it’ll come for me. I think for us as a team we’re going to find a way to get it done when guys come back healthy. Because you got to think we’re playing with a different five every night we’re stepping on the court. So you can’t expect us to have much chemistry when you don’t know who you’re playing with each and every night. We’re hanging a hat on defense and allowing that to project us to a win.”
Drummond is averaging 10.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists in five games with the Lakers so far.
