Marc Gasol says Lakers have to focus on winning, not individual minutes

It’s been over a month since Andre Drummond replaced Marc Gasol in the starting lineup, and the conversation surrounding the two Lakers centers hasn’t cooled down since then — in fact, it may have reached its boiling point on Monday night.

In the Lakers’ 93-89 win over the No. 3 seed in the West, the Denver Nuggets, Marc Gasol was unequivocally the second-best center on the floor behind Nikola Jokic. He didn’t record a double-double, something Drummond has done eight times in the last month, nor did he have a monster scoring night; he just did little things to maximize the talent around him, particularly on offense.
