Andre Drummond wasted no time recording a double-double

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Kid should probably play more minutes...

Andre Drummond, as you surely know, is quite the dynamic rebounder and finisher, but as a rookie, plays relatively few minutes for Lawrence Frank's Pistons. When you're in a position like that, you've gotta get your numbers quickly, and that's exactly what Drummond's been doing tonight against the Bucks.

Drummond checked in with about five minutes left in the first quarter and by the seven-minute mark of the second, had recorded a double-double. Gobbling every available rebound and scoring tirelessly around the rim (including a vicious one-handed tip-dunk) got him 12 points and 10 rebounds in a shade over ten minutes. Detroit's second unit needed that kind of ridiculous production, too, as they let a big lead slip away against a Bucks bench lead by Mike Dunleavy.

Drummond has 12 and 11 at halftime, including six o-bounds. He might have 20/20 in his sights, you know, if he plays more minutes.

Incidentally, the fewest minutes played in a double-double game (at least in Basketball-Reference's database) came from David Robinson, who dropped 10 and 11 in just twelve minutes of play in 2002. That doesn't answer our question of least time to reach a double-double, though. Drummond must be close.
