    I was actually thrilled that time Aldridge scored on Eric Gordon three feet from the basket late in the game. It was the most unexpected Spurs moment since that time Horry flushed one on Rip Hamilton in OT in another Game 5.
    I think he had better conditioning back then. I think he's lost the physical condition he needed to produce better on the offense he was used to.

    I think Aldridge lacks ability to establish deep position and finish, or back down until deep in the paint. He gets stripped, or doesn't turn to the baseline, or recently he seems to be stopped by a guy like Harden.

    It's frustrating of course. Prime Timmy would kill the Rockets. At the least, how hard is to seal a guard closer to the basket instead of asking for the ball so far from it?
    Lamarcus age is right about where you need to start taking your off season conditioning seriously. This is what separates those that want to win, vs those that do win. No more coming into training camp overweight.

    Prime Timmy? 2016 Duncan on two bad knees would be averaging 35 a game with Harden and Gordon switched onto him.

    Aldridge has the 4th worst offensive rating of any Spurs player in this series (101) -- only Forbes//Murray/Bertans who barely played have a lower rating..

    But was told his "will gonna be imposed"..

    I was stunned he made that shot tbh. Him missing two Ft's to start OT and that turnover in the post midway through overtime didn't leave me with a ton of confidence in him. That Horry game was ing amazing. Didn't score at all in the first 35:57 in the game but finished with 21 in 25 minutes. Horry wasn't about to lose that game; neither were Green, Simmons, Manu, and Mills.

    yeah a 101 O Rtg is pretty damn bad, no matter what player it is. This is the same guy that torched OKC in Game 1 and Game 2 last year

    can you imagine players like beverley, harden, or gordon trying to guard Timmy in the post? even old man Duncan would all over them on one knee. LMA is trash

    Even worse LMFAOOOO

    This is Aldridge's FG% by distance in the playoffs (without counting tonight )
    3-10 feet: 13.1FG%
    10-16 feet: 23.8FG%
    16 feet - 3pt line: 26.9FG%

    Do you ever get tired of being everybody's dumpster you got?
    Wait so he's shooting under 30% for the playoffs? I knew he was sucking but holy that's historically bad, tbh.

    Na I read it wrong, it's slightly better.

    From 10-16ft he's at 41FG%
    From 16ft - 3pt line he's at 28FG%
    From 3Pt he's at 0FG%

    Tbh, I can understand Aldridge - he's got issues with his leg. But Pau just averaged 17/game with the Bulls last year. We know he couldn't defend anything but the rim, but surely they must have thought he could still punish smaller guys down low.

    TD is one of the last bigs that make the other team pay for going small by dominating the frontline. He had issues sometimes with longer defenders but feasted on smaller defenders.

    I get that Aldridge is a big who dislikes contact but until this year you could generally count on him being effective on the rare occasion when he did decide to go inside.... Not so much this year and that is very worrisome since that is the place where the Spurs had the advantage on most teams.

    He didn't get his 17ppg on the Bulls off of post ups, he only shot .566 at the rim - the lowest career mark by far. He got his points from jump shots but he can't find his spots these playoffs at all. Part of it is the Spurs don't have elite penetration or playmaking.

    LMA has no lift, can't hit turnaround jump shots with no lift. Whether it's an injury or conditioning we'll probably find out later. Wouldn't surprise me if he has a knee 'procedure' in the summer.
