Tied #10 DeMar DeRozan
For a second consecutive season, the Spurs missed the playoffs, which sounds strange saying considering they were in the postseason for 22 straight years before this fall in the standings. Despite that, DeRozan had a solid campaign with averages of 21.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and a career-best 6.9 assists. His best scoring performance this season came on Jan. 9 against the Timberwolves when he erupted for 38 points, one of his 11 30-plus point games in 2020-21. Other players who deserve a mention on this list include Most Improved Player Award finalist Jerami Grant, Gordon Hayward, OG Anunoby, Norman Powell, Dillon Brooks, Mikal Bridges and Harrison Barnes.
