That's obvious right? The only thing we might take away from any of it is that he might have improved his range.
besides, you can't really shut down a combo 1-2 guard like Iman one on one. he has too many options in games like these.
you need team defense to stalk the passing lanes.
you need good help defense if DeRozan is going stay close and challenge jumpers. because if there is none, he'll just get past you to the basket.
