The Spurs had major trouble getting the offense going on Thursday, and an 11-point, six-rebound performance from LaMarcus Aldridge didn’t help matters in the slightest.
Aldridge actually fouled out in this one, which wasn’t a game for the record books by any stretch of the imagination. He was able to kick in a steal, triple and a block before departing so it wasn’t all bad. LMA was a prime sell high candidate earlier in the season but owners who decided to hang out can expect him to return top-75 numbers going forward. He’s being put in more positions to succeed than last season, so his outlook isn’t nearly as bleak as it was in the preseason.
