Lakers defensive rating this season
Before LeBron & AD injury: 106.8
After LeBron & AD injury: 105.2
They still have the league’s best defense even without their 2 best defensive players. https://t.co/q04Xhl37RJ
Andre Drummond (20 points, 11 boards in 22 minutes) started for Cleveland when the Cavs beat BKN in B2B January games. He went for a combined 32 points and 23 boards.
His athleticism at the rim is a problem for the Nets, one that would be boosted by LeBron/AD’s presence.
