Aldridge finished with 16 points (6-16 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, and three blocks in 41 minutes during Saturday's 90-86 loss to the Nuggets. Aldridge struggled from the field Saturday, his shot deserting him at the worst possible time. Overlooking the disappointing end to the season, Aldridge put together a strong series of games across the playoffs and was almost certainly the Spurs best player across that period. The arrival of DeMar DeRozan did little to impact Aldridge's value and it would appear things will remain much the same heading into next season.

Aldridge was excellent for the Spurs, ending the game with a team-high 26 points to go with 10 rebounds. The Spurs were able to resist a persistent Nuggets team, forcing a Game 7 which will be in Denver on Saturday. Aldridge has been a consistent source of points and rebounds for the Spurs across the seven-game series and will need to at his best if they are to force the upset Saturday.

Aldridge has gone for a double-double in two of the last three games. However, he has also failed to score 20 points in two of the last three.

Aldridge collected 24 points (10-18 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, two steals, one assist, and one block in 29 minutes during Saturday's 117-103 Game 4 loss to the Nuggets. Aldridge filled up the stat sheet despite not seeing the floor at all in the fourth quarter. Coach Gregg Popovich stated in his post-game press conference that Aldridge isn't injured. With the series tied at two games apiece, Aldridge seems likely to receive a heavy load of minutes in Tuesday's Game 5.
