All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge has been one of the best players in the league this season but last night’s loss to the Pacers is one game he’s going to want to forget. Even though he finished with 22 points, he missed 15 of his 24 attempts but the low light of the night came with a minute and a half left in OT. Down by 2, Aldridge saved a ball from going out of bounds and then threw the ball directly to a wide open David West who dunked it.
The Pacers came away with a 5 point win despite a 38 point 11 assists performance from Damian Lillard. The 5 event playing All-Star became the fist Blazer since Rod Strickland to have multiple 30/10 games in a season.
For the Pacers, Paul George was equally bad from the field (5-23) but did hit a clutch shot and got a career high 37 from teammate George Hill who also hit a 3-pointer to put the game into OT.
