ESPN Stats and Info

Andre Drummond had another monster game to start out his season, scoring 25 points and grabbing 29 rebounds in a 94-82 loss to the Indiana Pacers Tuesday.

The Pistons have started off 3-1, much in part to Drummond’s contributions on the glass.

Here are some of the numbers behind tonight's game and his start to the season.

1 – There is only one other player to have multiple career games of at least 25 points and 25 rebounds in losses: Hakeem Olajuwon.

2 – With three steals tonight, Drummond is the first player with at least 20 points, 20 rebounds and two steals in consecutive games since Kevin Willis in 1991.

3 – Drummond is now one of three active players to have multiple games of 25 points and 25 rebounds, joining Dwight Howard and Al Jefferson.

4 – In the Pistons’ first four games this season, Drummond has multiple 20 point-20 rebound games. From the Elias Sports Bureau: The last player to accomplish that was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1975-76. He won the MVP that year.

5 - Drummond is the fifth player over the last 20 seasons with 25 points, 15 defensive rebounds and 10 offensive rebounds in a game since Kevin Love on Nov. 12, 2010.

15 – Drummond has the most rebounds by a Piston in the first four games of the season over the last 30 seasons with 78, 15 more than Bill Laimbeer, who had 63 in 1986.

34 - According to NBA's SportVU player tracking, Drummond was within 3.5 feet of a possible rebound 34 times Tuesday. He grabbed 29 rebounds, a rebounding percentage of 85.3 percent.

78 – Over the last 30 seasons, only Dennis Rodman (83) and Charles Barkley (80) have grabbed more rebounds than Drummond (78) has in the first four games of a season.

He definitely doesn't have the scorer's touch. He's bullying his way inside and hoping he gets a friendly roll off the rim. At least he's comfortable and wants to be down there though. If he becomes better at helping on screens and contesting shots, he'll be a force to be reckoned with. He reminds me of a little like Kevin Love...getting rebounds is his #1 priority.

Dwight Howard is better. He was invited to the kardashian wedding, he made finals. This clown never even made playoffs

Yea I am real glad the Raps decided to draft TRoss instead, really dodged a bullet there.

Yep, using his body is a good thing. He used to settle for position way more often, firing up awful post attempts from 10 feet.

His lack of touch combined with his sheer mass actually makes him kind of an interesting player. A lot of his offensive rebounds are second and third attempts on plays some other players may have just finished in the first place. But then again, there's a lot of players without touch and they're not averaging 20 & 20 right now. Despite whatever shortcomings he has, he's making it work right now.

Because he only averaged 10 ppg and 7 rpg in college, while shooting 28% from the line.

KAT was also a part of one of the greatest collection of college players the sport has ever seen. They shifted players like it was hockey.
