LaMarcus Aldridge scored 17 points on 6-of-17 shooting to go with seven rebounds and two blocks on Sunday.
Aldridge didn’t have to be scorching hot for the Spurs to handle the Kings so they were able to ride this performance for an easy win. Kawhi Leonard remains out for an indefinite amount of time so Aldridge’s great fantasy year got some extra juice. If you’re looking far ahead and can pry some high level talent, there’s still a reason to do so as the Spurs expect Leonard to return eventually and when he does it means LMA’s production will go down. However, with no clear timetable, it makes sense to sit back and enjoy the ride.
