DeRozan compiled 19 points (7-21 Fg, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, and two steals in 43 minutes during Saturday's 90-86 loss to Denver. DeRozan's debut season for the Spurs came to an end Saturday in what could only be described as a disappointing climax. He struggled from the field, connecting on just 7-of-21 shot attempts. The game ended with a curious sequence as the Spurs elected not to foul despite trailing by four points with 30 seconds to go. It was simply not meant to be for DeRozan and the Spurs and they will now have to watch from the sidelines as the Nuggets move on to face the Trail Blazers.
DeRozan ended with 25 points (12-16 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, and seven assists in 36 minutes during Thursday's 120-103 victory over Denver. DeRozan bounced back after a disappointing Game 5, helping lead the Spurs to a 17 point victory, sending the series back to Denver for a deciding Game 7. This was a tight game for the majority with the Spurs managing to pull away in the fourth quarter, buoyed by some hot shooting from DeRozan. Denver will almost certainly be the favorites on their home floor but the Spurs have already won once on the road and will be confident of doing it once more as they attempt to advance to face the Trail Blazers.
DeRozan was ejected during the fourth quarter of Game 4 after posting 19 points (7-13 FG, 5-6 FT), five rebounds and five assists in 34 minutes. DeRozan was having a good game before the incident. He was called for a charge after attempting a spin move, and he subsequently launched the basketball at the official from across the court.
DeRozan totaled 25 points (9-18 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT), five assists, four rebounds and three steals across 38 minutes in the Spurs' win over the Nuggets on Thursday. DeRozan piled up 25 points in Thursday's win, hitting that scoring mark for the second straight playoff game. He's now averaged 24.7 points in three games in the first round of the playoffs, leading the Spurs in scoring along the way.
DeRozan dialed up 31 points (11-19 FG, 9-9 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 114-105 Game 2 loss to the Nuggets. DeRozan put on a stellar scoring display while filling up the stat sheet. With the Spurs a bit short on offensive firepower, the 29-year-old wing should be expected to continue shouldering a sizable load offensively as the series shifts to San Antonio.
