DeMar DeRozan posted a 20-point, 11-assist double-double in Monday's MLK Day win over Portland. DeRozan was uber-efficient in this one, going 6-of-9 from the field and 8-of-8 from the charity stripe, and he added six rebounds, two steals and four turnovers in his 32 minutes of floor time. The Spurs have now won six of their past eight games, and they currently hold the No. 5 seed out West. They missed the postseason last year which had some folks concerned about management potentially blowing up the roster, but that will be an unfounded fear as long as the Spurs are competitive for a playoff spot.

Andrew Wiggins (right knee soreness) is questionable on Wednesday vs the Spurs. The Dubs small forward is coming off one of his best shooting nights of the season in a win over the Lakers on Monday night. But with a back-to-back slate on Wednesday/Thursday, it wouldn't be surprising to see Steve Kerr play it safe and give Wiggins a night off. Eric Paschall and Kent Bazemore would likely pick up the slack if that's the case.
