They have four consecutive losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Kings with a 102-122 score, not beating the odds. DeMar DeRozan leads the team both in scoring with 23 ppg and in assists made with 5.2 per game. He also adds 5.7 rebounds, while LaMarcus Aldridge follows with 18.7 ppg and a team high 7.5 rebounds per game.
