DeMar DeRozan believes the San Antonio Spurs don’t need some sort of divine intervention to salvage their 2020-21 season. After dropping their fifth game in a row on Friday following a close 121-119 loss to the Denver Nuggets, the four-time All-Star said the team just needs to dig deep to get out of the funk they’re currently in.
“We are not putting a Batman sign up in the sky, waiting on Bruce Wayne to come. We are definitely going to figure it out,” DeRozan said, per Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express.
DeRozan and the Spurs were actually in the top eight of the stacked Western Conference before the All-Star break. But the team has been unable to sustain their strong start and have gone 2-8 in their last 10 games. San Antonio had a shot of tying the ball game at the end of regulation against the Nuggets on Friday but missed several opportunities. Down by just two points with under seven seconds left, the door was wide open for the Spurs after Michael Porter Jr.’s missed free throw.
