As the year begins to wind down, it's safe to say the San Antonio Spurs have had an eventful 2021. This year alone, the team overcame several obstacles to make the play-in game last season, followed that with a roster overhaul in free agency, and started a rebuild.
With the year now almost over, it's worth taking a look at each player on the roster and finding a potential area for improvement heading into 2022. Without further delay, here is one New Year's resolution for all 15 San Antonio Spurs.
Dejounte Murray - Keep it up
Dejounte Murray's terrific play has helped keep the Spurs semi-competitive but playing at such a high level may be catching up with him. His scoring has dipped in the month of December to just 14.7 points per game after averaging nearly 20 points in November. His recent downturn could be the result of him averaging a career-high 34.2 minutes while also appearing in every game.
Heading into 2022, Murray will continue to have a lot on his plate, not only over the remainder of this season but the start of next season as well. However, the Spurs can't afford to have his scoring decline over a long period of time, especially with Murray being their next star. Therefore, Murray finding a way to maintain his high level of play should be his number one goal for 2022.
