The San Antonio Spurs hosted the Houston Rockets Wednesday evening and it was a game that they needed badly after being thumped by 30 by the Golden State Warriors Monday night 120-90. Against the Rockets last night, the Spurs were the thumpers with a 31 point trouncing of the Rockets, riding a 25-point performance by PF LaMarcus Aldridge who was 9-13 from the floor. Against the warriors, Aldridge was a mere 2-9 from the floor.
“I wanted to be better than I was last game,” Aldridge said. “I wanted to have a better rhythm, try to put my stamp on the game. I was trying to be more in-tuned to the game for sure. I was more myself, took my time, made the reads, didn’t let the double-teams or them bluffing me speed me up tonight. It was important for us to just be ourselves again playing defense, being active and trying to hold teams to taking tough shots and not giving up so much easy stuff. Tonight, I thought the guys did that.”
The Spurs will travel to Cleveland for a game against the LeBron and the Cavaliers Saturday night before returning home for a game against the Orlando Magic Monday night. Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and cheer on your Spurs against the Magic.
