After the Pistons got walloped by the Bucks in Game 1 of their first-round series yesterday, Andre Drummond found a silver lining for getting ejected in the third quarter.
“I got to shower early,” he said.
Drummond wasn’t Detroit’s worst player in the 121-86 loss, not by a longshot. He finished with 12 points and 12 rebounds, and he even did a relatively good job defending Giannis Antetokounmpo.
But Antetokounmpo showed up Drummond by hitting a 3-pointer as Drummond literally waved him off in the third quarter:
That was Antetokounmpo’s only made 3-pointer in five tries. The Pistons can live with him taking those shots. But Drummond’s wave only added to Detroit’s torment.
