The result prevented the Mavericks from sweeping a season series from the Spurs for the first time in the rivalry’s 41-season history — but more importantly, it was a stinging defeat for the Mavericks (29-23) in their ongoing quest to climb into the top six in the Western Conference. Instead of winning for the seventh time in their last eight games, the Mavericks fell to a Texas rival for the second time in four days. Houston and San Antonio are otherwise winless in April, making the two defeats all the more damaging. “He made a hell of a shot, over a good defender,” Luka Doncic said of DeRozan.
“Going for the block, in my head I saw that clearly I was going to get the block,” Porzingis said. “But he’s good at leaning back and I hit his head a little bit. It’s a tough one, obviously. I wanted to be out there. Even with everything we had a chance to win the game. Doncic (29 points, seven assists) tied the score at 117 on a shot from the lane with 19.4 seconds left, setting up DeRozan’s heroics. “DeMar hit a huge shot,” Porzingis said. “Hat’s off to him. That just shows how hard it is to win every night, against an NBA team.”

DeMar DeRozan to take a 'wide open' approach to free agency in terms of landing spots

A source with knowledge of DeRozan’s outlook said he’ll be taking a “wide open” approach to free agency in terms of possible landing spots. But after these past three seasons in San Antonio, where he was asked to sacrifice on the scoring front and evolve as a playmaker in the process, the master of the midrange has put himself in prime position to take advantage of this well-earned reputation as a more versatile offensive threat.
