DeMar
DeRozan
A day off was the exhale the San Antonio Spurs needed after two blowout losses. DeMar DeRozan (6'7''-F/G-89, college: USC) had a season-high 36 points and San Antonio overcame a big game by Damian Lillard (6'3''-PG-90, college: Weber St.) to beat the Portland Trail Blazers 131-118 on Sunday night. The Spurs held a rare practice Saturday morning following consecutive losses of 39 points and 31 points. The team responded with its highest scoring output in regulation this season. 'Our communication was better,' DeRozan said. 'I just told the guys, go out there and play, relax, don't think too much.' The Spurs responded by shooting 70 percent on 3-pointers with at least 10 attempts for the first time since 2006, finishing 11 for 15 on 3s. LaMarcus Aldridge added 29 points and Rudy Gay (6'8''-F/G-86, college: Connecticut) had 18 as San Antonio snapped its two-game skid. Lillard scored 37 points and C.J. McCollum (6'4''-G-91, college: Lehigh) had 24 for Portland. The Blazers have lost five of six, giving up an average of 123.2 points in those losses. 'We've given up a lot of points, but the league's funny right now,' Portland coach Terry Stotts said. 'San Antonio just came off of games where they've given up a lot of points.' Spurs guard Patrick Mills (6'0''-PG-88, college: St.Mary's, CA) referred to the losses as 'embarrassing' and 'deflating,' but San Antonio was able to rebound with a needed win as it prepares to embark on a two-game road trip. 'It had to be better than the last two games, right?' Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. 'Everybody's got to participate. Good individual defense matters and good team defense (matters), but there is no team defense without talking or trust. We're trying to get there with this new group.' DeRozan scored 26 points in the second half as the Spurs rallied from a seven-point deficit in the third quarter after blowing a 12-point lead in the first half. Portland opened the second half on a 24-10 run in taking a 79-72 lead. San Antonio aided the spurt by committing four turnovers and missing five of its first six shots. 'We were trying to get L.A. going, get him in a rhythm,' DeRozan said. 'As soon as he came out in the third quarter, I seen we were just kind of stagnant. We had a couple of turnovers in a row, I just tried to be more aggressive and put the pressure on them.' Al-Farouq Aminu tied a season high, scoring 11 of his 20 points in the third quarter. Aminu also finished with nine rebounds. DeRozan had 18 of San Antonio's final 20 points to close the third quarter, giving the Spurs a 97-90 lead entering the fourth. He opened the game 3 for 12 but finished 13 of 27 in scoring the most points he has with San Antonio.
