DEROZAN ‘SPECTACULAR’ IN RETURN, LEADS SPURS TO WIN VS PELICANS
In his first game back since the passing of his father, DeMar DeRozan led all scorers with 32 and added a game-high 11 assists in a 117-114 win vs. New Orleans, prompting Gregg Popovich to describe his efforts as “spectactular.” LaMarcus Aldridge added 21 in his second straight game off the bench in a contest that marked the Spurs first at home since February 9th because of the scheduled ‘Rodeo Road Trip.’
Though they didn’t play five games because of issues related to COVID, San Antonio has won six of their last eight. At 17-12, they have only one more loss than the Clippers, Lakers and Suns who are second, third and fourth in the West. But they sport significantly less wins then all of those team as well.
