DeRozan has been playing at his best in his second season as a Spur. He leads the team in scoring with 21.7 points and assists with 4.9 per game. The former ALL NBA talent back with the Toronto Raptors is doing things that Michael Jordan did 29 years ago. Converting 53% of his field-goal attempts with a minimum of 16 attempts. He is the first guard to do it since 1991.
Lately, DeRozan is balling all around the corner not forcing the issue to score. In the SPurs last nine games where they recorded 5-4 DeRozan shoots 50%+ in those games. Before Christmas against the Memphis Grizzlies, he shoots 91%, 81% versus Detroit Pistons and 73% against the NBA’s best defense Milwaukee Bucks.
San Antonio Spurs move up to the playoff race before the end of 2019. They beat the two of the NBA’s best in two straight games all in double figures and lopsided contests. With this kind of stunning performance from DeMar DeRozan, it will likely that San Antonio had a representative in Chicago in the All-Star event.
After a bad game, he played against the Brooklyn Nets, DeMar DeRozan scoring 26.1 points in nine games with 66% from the field.
