The Spurs finally turned back to Dewayne Dedmon on Tuesday and the big man delivered nine points and nine rebounds in 20 minutes.
Dedmon needs to play more in this series as he’s San Antonio’s only shot at having a defensively-capable traditional big man on the court. He had his starting role usurped in round one and barely played in round two, but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him get some heavier run going forward. He collected five rebounds on the offensive end and showed good energy to keep things relatively calm in the third quarter. The line would also look better had he not shot 3-of-9 on lots of looks at the rim. He’ll be an intriguing play going forward.
