It’s not all doom and gloom for Seth Curry and Andre Drummond; while I’m sure the duo weren’t all that jazzed to move in the middle of the season, they at least made an immediate impact with the Brooklyn Nets in their debut, which is nice to see for a pair of former fan favorites. Thrust into the starting lineup alongside Patty Mills, Bruce Brown, and Kessler Edwards, Drummond and Curry played 24 and 32 minutes respectively and combined for 32 of the Nets’ points to go along with nine assists and 16 rebounds – all against the team that Harden dropped four-points less than two weeks prior.
And what about the player on the other side of that sweet skip pass? Well, in only his 13th start of the season, Drummond scored 11 points in 24 minutes – a total almost doubled by LaMarcus Aldridge in five fewer minutes, but I digress – and finished out the game with nine boards, five assists, and a block.
Would the Philadelphia 76ers be better with Seth Curry and Andre Drummond right now? Yes, it’s hard to argue that adding the duo to any team would make them worse, but as fans in Philadelphia saw at various times over the 2021 calendar year, both players can be exploited in the correct situation, especially if tasked with defending much better players like James Harden and Joel Embiid.
