Pistons News: Andre Drummond Remains Optimistic Despite Slow Start, Stan Van Gundy Assessment

It's been a frustrating start to the 2014-15 NBA season for many members of the Detroit Pistons, including big man Andre Drummond.

Drummond is averaging 8.6 points and 10.9 rebounds during the team's 2-6 start while dealing with both foul trouble and seeming confusion when it comes to teammates getting him involved in the offense.

Regardless, Drummond remains optimistic.

"I'm good. As long as we all stay in it, we'll be fine," he said Wednesday night after the Pistons' 107-103 loss to the Washington Wizards. "It's not an individual game and everybody has their streaks of shaky moments.

"It's an 82-game season. I'm not getting down on myself. Just gotta continue to play, and I'll continue to do the right things, and things will start to fall for me."

New Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy said recently that Drummond has been giving up ideal post position on post-up chances, along with calling out other members of the team for failing to recognize when he does find position down low.

"I don't control that," Drummond said. "I don't control the touches I get in the game. I just control what I can do at both ends of the floor. I just do my best."
