The San Antonio Spurs have set another mark in franchise history by moving past the 1977-78 Portland Trailblazers record of 27 straight wins at home after beating the New Orleans Pelicans 110-97 at the AT&T Center last night. The team was led by newcomer LaMarcus Aldridge who exploded for 36 points, six rebounds and three blocks.
“The ball has been going in,” Aldridge said. “I’m taking the shots and making them. Playing more confident and more like myself and I think that the team has fed off that energy.”
The big man’s play has come on at a time when Superstar Tim Duncan has missed multiple games but there is no argument that Duncan’s presence is sorely missed in the middle.
“LaMarcus is feeling more and more comfortable all the time as the season progresses,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. “I thought he was magnificent on both ends. Anthony (Davis) got three points in the fourth quarter, and LaMarcus did a great job on him. So, I thought he was special.”
The Spurs will travel down the IH-10 corridor for a meeting against in-state rivals The Dallas Mavericks tomorrow night at American Airlines Arena. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and lets cheer on your Spurs in Big D!
