LaMarcus Aldridge posted 27 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 43 minutes of action while Pau Gasol dropped 18 points, nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 38 minutes of play.
LMA shot 12-of-17 from the field, 1-of-1 from three and 2-of-2 at the line while Pau shot 6-of-10 from the field, 1-of-1 from three and 5-of-6 from the line. Both guys turned in super efficient games and had very solid stat lines but it wasn’t enough to top Paul Millsap and THJ. It was nice to see LMA break out and try to leap into the top-50 on the season.
