Since signing with the Lakers after he was bought out by the Cleveland Cavaliers, Drummond has learned that he and Caruso form a “scary” duo on defense.
“He’s a hell of a player,” Drummond said. “Alex is a great player on both ends of the court. His plus-minus say it. I mean, there’s not much more to say. When he’s on the floor, big things happen. I love having him as a teammate, when we’re on the floor together defensively, it’s a scary thing.”
The Lakers are coming off a huge win over the Charlotte Hornets and had a defensive rating of 89.8 in the 24 minutes Caruso played in last night.
