LaMarcus Aldridge scored 32 points on 12-of-21 shooting (going 8-of-10 at the line) with five rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal in 36 minutes on Tuesday in a 97-91 win over the Mavericks.
Aldridge’s performance so far this season has far exceeded his ADP. He is currently cruising along inside the top-20 thanks to improvement in nearly every category compared to last season’s numbers. He is shooting over the 50 percent mark on the year, which we have seen him do before in his career, so the increased efficiency may be for real. The eventual return of Kahwi will almost certainly ding his value a bit, but a top-50 finish for Aldridge still seems likely.
