Vince Cellini

In a time of 'contract years' & 'me-first' play, a real team-first move by @LaMarcus Aldridge in playing hurt. Applause in Port (watch da thumb)

That'll do it, LaMarcus Aldridge wins Comeback Player of the Year.

Mike Prada

Aldridge is unbelievable. Forever underappreciated. But that game was winnable -- it was lost late in the third quarter.

Mike Richman

That's it. Blazers beat Wizards 103-96. Aldridge 26 and 9 in his return. Lillard 20pts, Matthews 19. Portland gets 32pts from its bench.

LaMarcus Aldridge comes away with a steal to basically steal it. Fitting that he'll get to ice this one at the line through 'MVP' chants

What a game. What a comeback. What a day for the Blazers. LaMarcus is back and so is Portland, which comes back from 14 down to beat Wizards

Mike Tokito

For this risk to be worth it, Aldridge can't just play, he has to play like himself, and he sure has tonight.

Look at all that attention Aldridge gets. That shot just isn't there the other night.
