Aldridge had 30 points (8-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 14-14 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 99-91 loss to the Warriors. Aldridge did all he could to try and get the victory Tuesday, but it wasn't enough as the Spurs crashed out of the playoffs in the first round. Aldridge had a stellar post-season, capping off a fantastic regular season, carrying the Spurs into the playoffs without the injured Kawhi Leonard (quad). The build-up of the roster for next season is still a bit of a mystery but Aldridge should feature prominently no matter what direction they head in.
Aldridge scored 22 points (7-19 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, a steal and a block in 38 minutes during Sunday's 103-90 win over the Warriors in Game 4. It's his third straight double-double in the series, but the first that actually led the Spurs to a victory. Aldridge is averaging 22.0 points and 8.5 boards through four games, but he'll need to come up with another big effort if the series is going to extend beyond Tuesday's Game 5 in Oakland.
Aldridge produced 18 points (6-10 FG, 6-7 FT), 10 rebounds and four assists across 37 minutes during San Antonio's 110-97 loss to the Warriors in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Aldridge once again paced the Spurs in scoring and rebounding, with his 60.0 percent success rate from the floor serving as his highest of the series. However, his contributions were nowhere near enough to help vault his team to victory. The veteran forward remains San Antonio's most viable offensive threat by far, and he should once again see a high volume of minutes as they look to stave off elimination in Sunday's Game 4.
Aldridge pitched in 34 points (11-21 FG, 12-12 FT), 12 rebounds and three assists across 37 minutes in San Antonio's 116-101 loss to the Warriors during Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Aldridge unsurprisingly led the way for the Spurs' offense once again, but as has often been the case, he got nowhere near the support he needed to have his efforts lead to victory. The multi-time All-Star is likely to continue seeing sky-high usage for what remains of the series, although if the first two games are any indication, the Spurs may not be long for the postseason. Factoring in Monday's production, Aldridge is averaging 24.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 30.5 minutes over the first two games versus the Warriors, with his shot attempts seeing a nice bump from the 12 he took in Game 1.
Aldridge finished with 14 points (5-12 FG, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 24 minutes during Saturday's 113-92 loss to the Warriors. Aldridge saw just 24 minutes of playing time Saturday, finishing with 14 points and not much else. This was not a good matchup for Aldridge and he has had problems producing against the Warriors previously. He is going to need a step-up if the Spurs hope to win even one game in this series so look for more effort to come in the second encounter on Monday.
