The San Antonio Spurs didn’t have a great month of February, but they would’ve been completely dead in the water without the contributions of DeMar DeRozan.

The San Antonio Spurs spent a majority of their February on the annual Rodeo Road Trip where they went 1-7.

The Spurs won both of their home games last month which saved February from being a complete disaster, but their road struggles continued all month long.

However, one bright spot of the month was a complete bounce back from DeMar DeRozan who was coming off of a terrible January where he had a true shooting percentage of just 44.9% while only scoring 16.3 points per game.

DeRozan was one of the only Spurs that showed up night in and night out in February as he posted 22.4 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per night.

His efficiency bounced back as well as DeRozan improved his true shooting percentage to 56.9% in February, and San Antonio had a 114 offensive rating when he was on the floor compared to a 91 during the month of January.

DeMar has carried over that strong performance into the first couple games of March as well as the Spurs are +28.8 when he is on the court so far.

Consistency from DeRozan will be key to the Spurs closing out the regular season strong and entering the postseason on a hot streak.

DeMar has had an up-and-down year where he’s looked like a dark horse MVP candidate at times and also spurts where he couldn’t hit a jumper to save his life and kept turning the ball over.

Hopefully this impressive month of February is a sign that DeRozan has put those midseason struggles behind him and that he’s ready to lead this team to playoff success.
