Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan had playing basketball on the next level of his career. Efficient basketball at most in the last twelve games. That’s why he earned a Western Conference player of the week. It’s the tenth time of his career, first as a Spur.
Justin Kubatko: The @San Antonio Spurs DeMar DeRozan has averaged 27.3 PPG with a 65.1 FG% over his last 12 games. The only other players in the last 25 seasons to average 25+ PPG with a 65+ FG% over a 12-game span are LeBron James, Dwight Howard, Amar’e Stoudemire, and Shaquille O’Neal. via Twitter jkubatko
In the last twelve games, the Spurs went to 6-6. The most highlights of their victory have they beaten the best teams in the league. First the Milwaukee Bucks and the Boston Celtic with a convincing win which they dominated right from the start. Then the Toronto Raptors after overcoming an 18 point deficit.
With his play, DeRozan is a strong candidate to play in the All-Star game which he missed last year.
