Aldridge had 21 points and 11 rebounds, and for the first time all season, Nash went with him instead of Blake Griffin to start the third quarter of a game, as the Nets won 117-112 on Monday night. “I think JA gave us problems with his rim protection in the paint. We don’t have a ton of shooting. It allows him more to be in there,” Nash said. “I just thought we needed to change something in the second half, play with a little bit more pace. “LA obviously was making shots and spacing the floor for us. Other than that, we played with a little bit more smaller lineups, gave James Johnson and Paul [Millsap] opportunities. Just tried to make an adjustment tonight to see if we could generate some energy and pace and turn the game.”
Aldridge had 11 of his 15 points in the last eight minutes, including two huge buckets in the final two minutes to clinch it. “He’s been doing that forever. I am happy he is off my scouting report and on my team. He’s tough, he has been hitting clutch buckets like that his whole career,” James Johnson said. “The maestro James Harden was not reluctant to find him down the stretch, shows a lot of character in his leadership as well.”
