Kawhi Leonard's game-winner propels Spurs to 98-96 win over Magic

San Antonio didn't play well against the Magic but a Leonard dagger allowed them to get the win on the second game of the Rodeo Road Trip. It was an ugly performance but the Spurs are going to the All-Star break as winners. After trailing by as many as 14, San Antonio staged a comeback late and beat the Magic 98-96. Kawhi Leonard led the way with 29 points, including the game-winner, while LaMarcus Aldridge had 21. Evan Fournier had 28 for Orlando, which probably deserved to emerge victorious but couldn't close the game. Wednesday's game had "trap" written all over it. It was following a...

Aldridge named Western Conference Player of the Week

LMA earns Western Conference Player of the Week honors, his ninth all-time and his first with the Spurs. LaMarcus Aldridge has been named the Western Conference Player of the Week. After a debated fifth All-star selection -- in which pundits criticized the Spurs center's honor over former teammate Damian Lillard -- Aldridge seems to be acclimating to his role in the Spurs system, especially in the low-post, averaging 26 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks since Feb. 1. SAN ANTONIO (Feb. 8, 2016) – The NBA today announced that San Antonio Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge was named the...

LaMarcus Aldridge named Western Conference Player of the Week

SAN ANTONIO — The no Twitter thing really seems to be working out well for LaMarcus Aldridge. The Spurs’ forward was named the Western Conference Player of the Week on Monday, after averaging 26 points on 59.7% shooting, 7.3 rebounds and 2.5 blocked shots a game last week. He scored a season high 36 points

Aldridge named Western Conference Player of the Week

MIAMI – In this week’s issue of Spurs Nation Magazine, Express-News columnist Buck Harvey quotes Heat president Pat Riley as saying LaMarcus Aldridge, not Kawhi Leonard, is the Spurs’ best player now. That was certainly true last week. Over four games, all wins, the All-Star big man averaged 26.0 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.5 blocks

Are the Spurs as scary as they were before the losses to the Cavaliers and Warriors?

In the Bonus is back. The PtR staff discusses the aftermath of the two losses to contenders, LaMarcus Aldridge's All-Star case, the upcoming trade deadline and the race for the last two spots in the West. 1 - Did the losses to the Warriors and Cavaliers change your opinion on the Spurs' chances to win the championship? Michael Erler: Not the results so much because you throw out games where Duncan doesn't play and there were very real reasons with the way Pop likes to operate for them to not go full out against the Warriors. In the statistical sense the losses hurt because it dramatically...

San Antonio at Dallas, Final Score: Spurs flatten the Mavericks 116-90

The Spurs looked sharp early behind the efforts of Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge, and dominated the Mavericks who couldn't do much right in the first half. Things got a little chippy late in the first half and early in the second but Zaza Pachulia was ejected early in the second and the teams settled down for extended garbage time late in the game as the Spurs won by 26. The Spurs started tonight's game against the Mavericks sharp behind strong efforts from Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge, and the Mavs were kept in check by the Spurs defense.  Things got embarrassing for...

The Spurs don't need Aldridge to be a basketball savior

In a dominating performance against New Orleans, LaMarcus had his best game since coming to San Antonio, but the Spurs don't require regular otherworldly performances from Aldridge. They just need him to be himself. Some people expected LaMarcus Aldridge to be something resembling a basketball savior when the San Antonio Spurs signed him in free agency. Some expected him to be what he was in Portland -- a ball-dominating, go-to scorer that was lethal from mid-range. For the most part, Aldridge hasn't been any of those things through the first half of this season. His scoring average...

Spurs, LaMarcus Aldridge brow-beat Pelicans into submission

I did not miss Ish Smith. Game 49 Vs. New Orleans: Spurs 110, Pelicans 97  Rec: 41-8  1st in Southwest, 2nd in West  Streak: W-2 Oh, THAT LaMarcus Aldridge. I remember him. We've seen Aldridge experience quite a few highs and lows in his brief time for the Spurs. We've seen him have great nights and some games where he's looked very ordinary. While we've yet to see him have a great game against a great team just yet, Wednesday against the NOOCH was certainly a giant leap in the right direction in that he had a huge night against a superstar opponent, scoring 36 points on 12-of-20...

New Orleans at San Antonio, Final Score: Spurs stay perfect at home, 110-97

The Spurs hold off the Pelicans and stay perfect at the AT&T Center with a fantastic night from LaMarcus Aldridge. David West once again filled in for the injured Tim Duncan in the starting line-up. The beat up Pelicans squad got off to a quick start and hit five of their first six shots. Both LaMarcus Aldridge and West were involved offensively early on and getting good looks, but on the defensive end no one could stop Anthony Davis. He was 5-for-6 in the first quarter with 12 points. New Orleans began to miss shots and San Antonio started to make some towards the end of the quarter, and...

GIF Breakdown: Orlando Magic vs. San Antonio Spurs

LaMarcus Aldridge edition. LaMarcus Aldridge had what was probably his best game as a Spur against the Magic on Monday night, finishing the night with a pretty line: 28 points (9-of-13 from the field, 10-of-12 from the charity stripe), 4 rebounds and 5 blocks. So with apologies to Patty Mills and his fantastic night (22-4-5), let's take a look at LaMarcus' night. Aldridge did half of his damage in the first quarter, repeatedly abusing Nikola Vucevic. Aldridge seemed more aggressive on both ends of the floor and more willing to play center with Tim Duncan still sidelined. The Magic aren't...

San Antonio vs Orlando, Final Score: Spurs survive the doldrums and mince the Magic 107-92

The Spurs got off to a quick start but struggled to stop the Magic in the second and third quarter, and finally pulled away at the close with a great game from LaMarcus Aldridge and strong contributions from Patty Mills and Kyle Anderson. The Spurs got off to a very quick start, but stagnated on offense for most of the mid-part of the game, letting a Magic team that was on the second night of a back to back take the lead in the third quarter.  The Magic were able to take advantage of Tim Duncan's absence to get about a million offensive rebounds that kept them in the game until Kyle...
