LaMarcus Aldridge comes up big late for Portland

Published on January 31, 2013 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Portland star LaMarucs Aldridge doesn’t get talked about enough nationally. Why? He is not playing in LA, Miami, New York or Chicago. Last night in Portland’s two point win over Dallas the All Star shined late.

The Mavericks were leading as many as 21 points in the third quarter and by 7 points as late as the final two minutes of the game but it was time for Aldridge to take over.

Aldridge hit a three pointer to tie the game at 104 with 4 seconds left, and then on the inbounds play the Mavs turned the ball over. Was there any doubt who Portland was going to?

Aldridge caught the inbounds pass and made the 18 turnaround jumper to give Portland the two point win.

For the game he finished with 29 points on 12 of 20 shooting from the field. He also added 13 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 blocks.
