Andre Drummond played his sixth game for the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday and, once again, he couldn’t find a way to make an impact.

in 28 minutes against the Jazz, Drummond was held to just 8 points on 3-12 shooting from the field and he posted a plus-minus of -15. Monday marked the fourth time in six games that Drummond posted a negative plus-minus. The only games he had a positive plus-minus in, the opposing team didn’t have a true starting center.

Drummond’s role will obviously change when LeBron James and Anthony Davis return, but will he able to make a real difference in that role? Christian and Anthony go back and forth on today’s postgame show.

But first, the guys recapped the Lakers’ 111-97 loss to the Jazz, in which the Jazz went wire-to-wire. As you can imagine, there weren’t many positives to takeaway from the game, but the big one was really encouraging, and that was Talen Horton-Tucker’s performance.

Although the 20-year-old guard still has a lot to learn, he showed why he’s such a promising young prospect against the Jazz on Monday. He scored 24 points on 8-13 shooting from the field and 3-5 shooting from behind the arc in 28 minutes. He’s good, and he’s only scratching the surface.
