DeMar DeRozan scored 17 points on Saturday in 5-of-16 field goal shooting in 28 minutes against the Heat on Saturday.
DeRozan added four rebounds, two assists, a steal and two turnovers to end the night. The silver lining was his 7-of-7 shooting from the line. Since Kyle Lowry has been out, DeRozan has been playing much worse. His usage numbers are up but it is at the expense of his field goal percentage. If his performance is suffering from a lack of Lowry’s offensive presence, it is not likely that DeRozan shoots his season-average 46.6% to close out the year.
