Andre Drummond finished Team USA's 102-65 blowout win with 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting, five rebounds, and a steal in just over 16 minutes of play.
With DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis a little banged up, Drummond could see some extra minutes on the court come his way. The 21-year old is building up some solid experience here and should enjoy being a part of what appears to be a gold-medal winning team in the World Cup of Basketball.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
