Aldridge averaged 25.5 points, an NBA-best 14.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.5 blocks in four games last week. All were #Blazers wins.

On the season, Aldridge is averaging 23.5 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per contest. Aldridge is leading the Portland Trail Blazers in points and rebounds, and has been the key to their potent offense. Portland is currently on top of the Western Conference standings at 21-4, with two more wins than San Antonio (19-4) and Oklahoma City (19-4).
Point guard Damian Lillard has also been a major reason for Portland’s success. Lillard is averaging 20.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 5.7 assists in his second year out of Weber State.
The Trail Blazers have the number one scoring offense in the league averaging 107.9 points per game. Wesley Matthews (16.1 ppg), Nicolas Batum (13.9 ppg), and Robin Lopez (9.7 ppg) round out Potland’s starting five.
Great rebounding and passing have contributed to the high scoring. Rebounds are a source of second-chance points, and passing gets the ball to the open man.
Portland is a complete basketball team, and will give teams in the Western Conference fits all season.
