After pulling down 13.2 rebounds per 36 minutes as a rookie, it was difficult to see how he could maintain that pace from his 20 minutes per game. So far this season, he's surpassed it. The broadcasts have made sure to mention that Drummond is third in the league in rebounds per game, but NBA Stats has been tracking an interesting streak on their Twitter. After last night's game against the Heat, Drummond now has six straight games with 6 or more offensive rebounds. It's the longest streak of its kind since Jayson Williams in January of 1997. Dennis Rodman was the last Piston with such a streak, pulling down 6 or more offensive rebounds in seven straight games in 1992. At that time, Andre Drummond was not yet born.
