Among many reasons I don’t see LaMarcus Aldridge coming to the Lakers? He’s not big on spotlight and media. POR market a good fit. AK
LaMarcus Aldridge, Carmelo Anthony and Kobe Bryant have each taken more midrange jumpers than the Rockets have as a team this season.
FINAL: 102-93 Blazers. Lillard with 24, 7 ast, 4 rebounds. Aldridge with 22 and 9. Davis had 25 after 3. Finishes w/ 31, 11 rebs, 3 blocks.
LaMarcus Aldridge secures the Chalupas with Luke Babbitt sitting on the Pelicans' bench.
Alexis Ajinca needs to get back in game, Ryan Anderson having problems against Aldridge defensively
20 and 6 for Aldridge now. One-point Pels lead.
The Pelicans have defensive problems any time Ryan Anderson ends up on LaMarcus Aldridge with the Brow on Robin Lopez.
Five point game? LaMarcus hitting mid-range jumpers? What is this?
Stotts isn't messing around. Aldridge-Matthews-Lopez checking in…and then so does The Brow. 83-73 Pels with 9:13 left.
Half: Pelicans 49, Blazers 42. Lillard leads the Blazers with 10. Anthony Davis has 11, 6 rebs, 3 blocks. Aldridge w/ 6 on 3-for-8, 2 rebs.
Also, FWIW, that was not the first time he's done that. Did it it multiple times last year against Aldridge. Nobody guards LA like AD.
Anthony Davis is like a drunk fantasy that people used to have for Lamarcus Aldridge
No one blocks LaMarcus Aldridge fadeaways. (Every statement of fact will now include an Anthony Davis disclaimer).
Stop it Anthony Davis. He just blocked a LaMarcus Aldridge 19-footer that no one blocks, then gets Wes Matthews seconds later on 2nd jumper
I can't conceive of anyone else in the league blocking LaMarcus Aldridge's fadeaway like Anthony Davis just did.
Anthony Davis just blocked an Aldridge fadeaway then blocked a Matthews shot and it led to two FTs. What a terror.
Pelicans doubling (from the baseline) off the weak side corner when Aldridge catches. Someone is going to be open in that spot all night.
As soon as Aldridge got up so did Davis. Both in now
Seems like LaMarcus is really forcing the issue in the early going. Shots and passes. Looks like he's trying to get his rhythm back.
Allen Crabbe getting his fourth straight start alongside Lillard, Matthews, Aldridge and Lopez.
Pelicans starters: PG Holiday, SG Gordon, SF Evans, PF Davis, C Ajinca, Portland: PG Lillard, SG Matthews, SF Crabbe, PF Aldridge, C Lopez.
That's preseason question that remains. What happens when Rockets face Z-Bo, Aldridge, Griffin, Davis, Nowitzki or Duncan in playoff series?
Terry Stotts confirms that Aldridge will play tonight but Batum is still out vs. New Orleans. Victor Claver moves back to inactive list
Portland will be without SF Nikolas Batum (knee) but will have PF LaMarcus Aldridge (illness) tonight.
Aldridge in, Batum out for Blazers tonight per Stotts.
LaMarcus Aldridge (upper respiratory illness) will play and Nicolas Batum (right knee contusion) will not play vs. NO.
Nets should win tonight at home against a Miami team without Wade. But I also thought they should beat Portland without Aldridge and Batum.
It's the first POW honor for Lillard. Teammate LaMarcus Aldridge has won it 6 times, including 3 last season
For those asking about status of Aldridge/Batum vs. NO. Won't know for sure until about 5:15. Now, LA is questionable, Batum is doubtful.
Blazers officially make Batum (right knee contusion) doubtful for tomorrow and say Aldridge (illness) is questionable for Monday vs. Pels.
Did Meyers Leonard get Aldridge sick on purpose? LA: "He probably did so he can start, I get it now. No new friends, man, no new friends"
LaMarcus Aldridge (respiratory illness) said he "felt like death" three days ago but is feeling better now. Still questionable for tomorrow
LaMarcus Aldridge said he's unsure whether he will go tomorrow. About his illness he said, "I felt like death."
Blazers practice: Nicolas Batum attempting to kick a ball with that right knee that's kept him out. LaMarcus taking jumpers with PFs.
Not sure how much, but both Nicolas Batum and LaMarcus Aldridge are going through some of today's practice.
