San Antonio came up short against Atlanta on Tuesday, falling 108-100. San Antonio’s defeat came about despite a quality game from shooting guard DeMar DeRozan, who had 22 points. DeRozan is averaging 20.6 points per game to lead the Spurs and is shooting 51.4 percent from the field. LaMarcus Aldridge, Bryn Forbes, Rudy Gay, Derrick White, Dejounte Murray and Patty Mills are all averaging in double-figures as well and scoring depth should be key on Thursday against a rebuilding Thunder squad that doesn’t have the roster depth it once had.
Meanwhile, OKC was able to grind out a solid win over Orlando on Tuesday, winning 102-94. Oklahoma City’s success was spearheaded by the efforts of shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who had 24 points, and point guard Chris Paul, who had 20 points and six assists. After a sluggish start to the season, Paul is starting to find his rhythm offensively the last two games. He’s averaging 17.5 points and 7.5 assists during that span with just three turnovers. The Thunder are now 3-1 on the season when Paul turns the ball over three times or fewer in a game.
