DETROIT, Michigan — Andre Drummond had 19 points, 23 rebounds and 2 blocks to guide the Detroit Pistons to a 111-97 win over the Los Angeles Lakers who played without Lebron James on Friday night at Little Ceasars Arena.
Drummond is four rebounds away from posting a sixth straight season with at least 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds.
“I know everybody was excited to see LeBron, but we’re here for a different reason,” Casey said. “No matter who goes, whoever’s on load management, we can’t control that. I still say those teams are going to come out and compete, and that doesn’t mean automatic win at all.”
Pistons will host the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.
