LaMarcus Aldridge scored 8 points against the Warriors in Game 2. The Spurs center, who is critical to their success especially without Kawhi Leonard on the floor, said he “took the wrong approach” to the game. He was trying to spread the floor and share the ball early, he said, based on what he’s seen the Warriors do in Game 1. The result took him “out of a rhythm and out of the flow of the game.”
Aldridge promised that “I’ll be better” and “it won’t happen again.” He said he may have been thinking a little too much, admitting “I got lost in the flow just standing around.” He promised to shoot more and early, even tough shots — which he said he stayed away early from in Game 2. One reason Aldridge shied away from the tough shots was because the Warriors are so good in transition, he said. But they looked pretty good in transition anyway.
