DeMar DeRozan joins David Robinson in San Antonio Spurs record books with another efficient 25-point game

In San Antonio's loss to the Miami Heat, DeMar DeRozan led the Spurs with 30 points on 12-for-14 shooting from the field.

It marks the seventh straight game in which DeRozan has scored at least 25 points on 50 percent shooting from the field.

Here are DeRozan's numbers during that stretch:

  • vs. OKC: 30 points on 13-25 FG
  • vs. MIL: 26 points on 8-14 FG
  • vs. MIL: 25 points on 11-15 FG
  • vs. BOS: 31 points on 10-17 FG
  • vs. MEM: 36 points on 11-18 FG
  • vs. TOR: 25 points on 7-12 FG
  • vs. MIA: 30 points on 12-14 FG

According to NBA Stats, that ties the four-time All-Star with Spurs legend David Robinson for the longest such streak in franchise history.

Other than DeRozan and Robinson, there are only four players who have ever posted those numbers in five consecutive games in a Spurs uniform. Their names? Kawhi Leonard, Terry Cummings, LaMarcus Aldridge and Tim Duncan.

Unfortunately for DeRozan, the Spurs have only won three of those seven games. As a result, they've fallen out of eighth place in the Western Conference standings, trailing the Memphis Grizzlies by one game.

Even so, it's hard to knock his play lately.

"We're going to be fine," DeRozan said following the team's loss to Miami. "It (stinks) right now. It's right there. There's a lot of basketball to be played. We're trending in the right direction. We're playing well against great teams, have beaten some great teams and that does a lot for our confidence and knowing how much time is left."
