Updated: Oct 12, 2019
Eastern Conference: Andre Drummond
Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond is arguably the best rebounder in the NBA right now and he showed that throughout the fourth week of the NBA season, starting it off with a ridiculous 24 rebound game, also adding 25 points in a five-point overtime loss to the Heat. In the game following his season-high 24 rebounds, Drummond grabbed another 19 rebounds along with scoring 23 points and getting three steals as the Detroit Pistons topped the Orlando Magic 103-96. Following the much-needed win, Drummond led the Pistons to a 15 point victory over the Atlanta Hawks, scoring a game-high 23 points on ten of fifteen shooting while also adding 11 rebounds and four blocks. Coming off back to back wins, Drummond had this third 23 point performance of the week, this time adding 22 rebounds, two blocks, three steals, and three blocks. Despite the strong performance, he was not able to lead his team past the Hornets as the fell, 103-113.
Western Conference: Derrick Rose
The 2011 NBA MVP and now the point guard for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Derrick Rose has looked like his old self during the fourth week of the NBA season. Rose started off the week with a strong 21 point and four assist performance coming in the Timberwolves eleven point loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. Following the loss, the Timberwolves played the Los Angeles Lakers and Rose did all he could to keep the Timberwolves in the game, hitting a career-high seven threes in just nine attempts. Rose finished the game with a game-high 31 points as the Timberwolves were defeated by the Lakers, 110-114. In the final game of the week, Rose scored 21 points again while adding on 5 assists and 6 rebounds. Rose continued to shoot very efficiently from three hitting three of his six attempts, in an eleven point loss to the Sacramento Kings.
