LaMarcus Aldridge goes off
Normally, it would be worth talking about a 32-point, 17-rebound performance from Dwight Howard, but not today. Instead, we're marveling at LaMarcus Aldridge scoring 31 points and grabbing 25 rebounds in a 111-104 win over the Rockets. Aldridge has really come into his own this season; through 23 games, he's averaging 23.5 points and 10.6 rebounds per game, both far above his career averages. If he keeps this up -- and the Trail Blazers remain atop the tough Western Conference -- he might be in line for the NBA's top award.
