“That’s just something that has been a part of my game my whole career,” said Drummond. “They are using me the right way here and it’s something that I am very good at. I find guys because the defense pulls in when I do roll and I roll hard so I’m able to make that next pass to the shooters.”
It does help that Drummond has guys like Seth Curry, Shake Milton, Danny Green, and Georges Niang to pass to.
The passing from Drummond also helped the Sixers come up with 34 assists in the win.
“Watching film on them the night before and then going through walkthroughs, just knowing how they played, I knew tonight was going to be a heavy assist night for me because they are a team that’s pulling very hard and they trap our ball handlers too,” Drummond explained.
