San Antonio - DeMar DeRozan missed 12 of 18 shots in scoring just 13 points in Monday's 120-111 win over Boston, but he more than made up for his sub-par shooting with a game-high 10 assists.

It was the second game this season in which DeRozan has recorded double-digit assists. He had three such games in his previous 675 games, which covers nine seasons with Toronto and his first two games as a Spur. "I love it," DeRozan said of showing off his skills as a facilitator. "It makes my job easier. I remember earlier in my career, I always used to get frustrated if I had an off-night shooting because you don't really get a feel for everything else. Now, I don't mind when I have games where I can't make a shot. If I do everything else well, it feels just as good as if I went out there and scored 30 points."

For the season, DeRozan is averaging a team-best and career-high 6.3 assists per game.

"It's one of the great things he does," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said of DeRozan's passing skills. "He's a scorer who can also pass, and it's a great combination."

In recording his second consecutive double-double and sixth of the season, DeRozan also had seven rebounds and one steal in 35 minutes.
