If you haven’t been paying attention to the sports world in the last week or so, LaMarcus Aldridge of the Portland Trail Blazers is really channeling his inner Michael Jordan in the first round of the playoffs.
"LaMarcus Aldridge joins Kobe Bryant (2001) and LeBron James (2009) as the only active players to score 40+ in consecutive playoff games." -Espn
"LaMarcus Aldridge is first player with 80+ points and 15+ rebounds in team’s first 2 playoff games since Michael Jordan (April 25-27, 1997)."-Portland Trail Blazers Twitter
Portland is taking on Houston in the first round and coming into the series were the underdogs. But with Aldridge putting up 44.5 points per game and shooting close to 60% I feel like they are now the favorite.
Even with Dwight Howard putting up 32 points and 14 rebounds for the Rockets, the score was still 112-105 in favor of Portland, and giving them a 2-0 series lead heading home.
So what do you think will happen? Can Aldridge keep up this pace? Can Portland sweep? Tweet at us with the hash tag #FanxRant to let us know!
The best part of the Clippers blowing out the Warriors last night was not that Griffin shot 76% from the field, not that they won by a 40 point margin, and not that it evens the series at 1. But Blake Griffin getting 35 points, because that gives us way more amazing dunk faces by him. Case and point the pictures above.
