DeMar DeRozan finished Saturday's Game 7 loss with 19 points on 8-of-21 shooting, eight rebounds, six assists and two steals in 41 minutes.
There's some deeply cruel irony at play with DeRozan struggling mightily in Game 7 while Kawhi Leonard absolutely torched his opponent back in Toronto. Regardless, DeRozan was one of the few Spurs who looked to be even getting close to the bucket or getting the shots that they wanted, and ultimately the team just couldn't grind out enough points to get the job done despite mounting a furious comeback over the final 15 minutes or so. We're excited to see what DeRozan adds to his game this summer.

DeRozan added just four rebounds, one assist and one steal in his 28 minutes. This game was effectively over in the middle of the third quarter, so Demar didn't play his usual minutes. It might be time for Coach Popovich to let him shoot a few threes with their backs against the wall in Game 6 on Thursday.

Prior to getting ejected, DeMar DeRozan scored 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting while adding five rebounds and five assists in Game 4 on Saturday.
The Spurs' need every bit of their stars to show up so once DeRozan got ejected, it's all downhill for the Spurs' who lost control after their dominant first quarter against the Nuggets. He was efficient in tonight's matchup but 13 shots aren't enough to make an impact against the Nuggets who were desperate to steal a game in the Spurs' home floor after they did the same back in Game 1.

DeMar DeRozan scored 25 points on 9-of-18 shooting while adding four rebounds, five assists and three steals in Game 3 on Thursday.
DeRozan was 1-for-7 at the half with four points and came out in the second half red-hot. He made his first six shots to start the second half and looked nearly unstoppable. He hit some tough mid-range jumpers and the only 3-point attempt was because the shot clock was running down and he had to launch one. The Spurs are going to ride him and the mid-range shot until they die and so far it's working.

DeMar DeRozan dropped 31 points on 11-of-19 from the field and 9-of-9 from the line to go with seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in 33 minutes during the Spurs 114-105 Game 2 loss on Tuesday night.
The Spurs were in control early, but the Nuggets came roaring back late. DeRozan will need to keep it up in order for the Spurs to get a game or two back in San Antonio.

DeMar DeRozan scored a team 18 points on 6-of-17 shooting, adding 12 rebounds, six assists and a block in Saturday night's 101-96 upset road win agains the Nuggets.
DeRozan ran the show as a point forward for the Spurs as he has done all season, and the boards, assists and shot attempts were also team-highs tonight. The Spurs offense will continue to be orchestrated by DeRozan, and while you can expect the Nuggets to devise a better game plan to try and slow him down, expect much of the same from the 29-year-old 4-time all-star.

DeMar DeRozan put up 19 points, five rebounds, four assists, three steals and two turnovers on 7-of-15 shooting in 33 minutes in Wednesday night's 105-94 win over the Mavericks.
DeRozan's first year in San Antonio was filled with ups-and-downs. He was the Spurs' primary shot-taker and attempted 17.1 shots per game this season while also shooting the 2nd-highest percentage of his entire career at 48.1 percent from the field. However, he also managed to shoot the second lowest 3-point percentage in his career at 15.9 percent although he only attempted 0.6 triples per game this season. When it comes to fantasy, DeRozan finished as the 47th, 42nd and 50th ranked fantasy player in the last three seasons and kept that trend up this year, finishing as the 45th-ranked player in fantasy this year. It seems as though he's destined to never finish inside the top-30 and should be drafted as a mid-round guy next season.

DeMar DeRozan tallied 14 points and nine assists on 4-for-9 shooting in Sunday's 112-90 win over the Cavs on Sunday.
DeRozan only took nine shots in this one as the Spurs cruised to an easy win. His value to winning NBA games is still very questionable, but he's been a great fantasy asset over the past month, and should finish the season strong.

DeMar DeRozan scored a team-high 25 points in Thursday's 116-110 win over the Cavs, going 10-of-12 from the field and a perfect 5-of-5 at the line with eight assists and two steals.
DeRozan also gets a shoutout for rocking some slick blue and white sneakers on Manu Ginobili night. He picked up the slack on a night where LaMarcus Aldridge didn't have it (14 points on 6-of-15 shooting) and has been delivering top-40 value over the last couple of weeks. He's in for a strong finish with the Spurs fighting for playoff positioning.

DeMar DeRozan scored a team-high 30 points on 12-of-24 from the field in Tuesday's loss to the Hornets, adding eight rebounds and four assists in 40 minutes.
This was DeRozan's first 30-point game since March 12 and only his fourth since the start of January. While he isn't the same volume scorer he once was, DDR has also been able to balance out his game with quality numbers in assists, rebounds and steals. And considering he's shooting .497 in March, we're going to guess that fantasy owners don't have many complaints overall these days.
