Andre Drummond won his first game with the Los Angeles Lakers by defeating the Brooklyn Net. It was his third game as a Laker and the first time that he was the top scorer for his new team. He also had his second straight double-double (20 points, 11 rebounds).
After the game the 27-year-old center was asked if he learned anything about the Lakers. “I learned a lot from today’s game,” Drummond said. “That we have a lot of guys in this locker room that are very tough. Despite who’s on the other side on the court, they’re going to come out and play.
“No matter how many minutes guys play, they’re going to play to the best of their ability. And we have fun doing it. We had a lot of fun tonight playing and getting this win.”
