DeRozan chipped in with 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-4 FT), 12 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 119-109 win over the Mavericks. DeRozan has cracked the 20-point mark just thrice in his last nine games and he's shooting just 47.5 percent from the field during that stretch, which is a downgrade compared to what he's done most of the season. However, he's making strides as a playmaking threat and is averaging 7.8 assists per game during that nine-game span, while registering nine or more dimes five times in that period.
DeRozan compiled 25 points (7-19 FG, 11-12 FT), eight boards, four assists and two steals across 42 minutes Sunday in the Spurs' 132-129 overtime loss to the Cavaliers. DeRozan made up for his poor shooting from the field by getting the job done at the free-throw line, raising his season-long rate to 84.4 percent after the 11-for-12 showing. The swingman remains allergic to the 3-point line -- he's only attempted one shot from downtown over his last 15 games -- but his ability to get to the line and convert at a high rate along with his exceptional 52.8 field-goal percentage have him on track to finish with a new career high in true shooting percentage. His 59.8 TS% is more than four points higher than his mark from any other season.
DeRozan provided 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-3 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds and one steal in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 104-103 win over the Hornets. DeRozan posted his fifth double-double through 58 appearances this season, this after recording his career best (12 across 77 games) in that category in 2018-19. While his second year with the Spurs hasn't been as good in that department, DeRozan is still having a splendid season, as he's sporting a career-high field-goal percentage while continuing to produce well-rounded counting stats.
DeRozan had 27 points (9-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 9-9 FT), nine assists, eight rebounds and one steal over 34 minutes in Wednesday's 109-103 loss to the Mavericks. DeRozan has had decreased production over the past three games that may have been attributed slightly to his back injury, but he returned to form as he nearly picked up a triple-double Wednesday. After converting on just 41.4 percent of his field goal attempts over the previous two games, DeRozan made 60 percent of his shots from the field against the Mavericks.
DeRozan notched 11 points (4-12 FG, 3-4 FT), five rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes during Sunday's 131-103 loss at Oklahoma City. Generally speaking, DeRozan has drastically improved his shooting this season, making an easily career-best 53.0 percent of his attempts. However, he hasn't lived up to that standard recently, making 41.8 percent of his field-goal attempts in his last four contests. It's worth noting, however, that he's been dealing with a back injury of late, which could be the cause of this recent downturn.
