LaMarcus Aldridge predictably cooked the Nets for 20 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in Tuesday’s home win.
Aldridge shot 7-of-15 from the floor and is just too polished an offensive player for anyone on the Nets to slow down. He’s been an early-round value on a per game basis so far, but the return of Kawhi Leonard is really going to eat into his shot share. Selling high remains the advisable move here but Aldridge has done a pretty nice job of recapturing his old form this season. The Spurs reworking things to help Aldridge stay within his game solidifies his top-60 floor.
