LaMarcus Aldridge lights up for career-high 56 points as Spurs defeat Thunder
San Antonio Spurs forward/center LaMarcus Aldridge scored a career-high 56 points (20-of-33 field goals, 16-of-16 free throws) with 9 rebounds, 4 assists, a season-high 4 blocks, and 5 turnovers in 48.6 minutes of a 154-147 double-overtime victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday.
Aldridge recorded his first career 50-pointer and became the first Spurs player with 50-plus in a game since Tony Parker on November 5, 2008. He's also the first player since Shaquille O'Neal in 2000 to score at least 56 points without hitting any threes. To make it even more impressive, Aldridge did it all on the second half of a back-to-back. The Spurs play the Thunder again on Saturday in Oklahoma City.
Aldridge scored a season-high 79.8 FanDuel points in the win. He's averaging 37.9 FanDuel points through 43 games overall.
