Coming in to the nighttime, Aldridge’s career high in points was 45, set March. No Spurs player had scored more than that at a match since Tony Parker submitted 55 against the Timberwolves at November 2008.

Aldridge withdrew both of those numbers off Thursday night, going 20-for-33 from the field and also 16-for-16 from the free throw line to finish for a career-high 56 points, the 3rd most in Spurs history, behind David Robinson‘s 71-point match in 1994 along with George Gervin‘s 63-point match in 1978. The difference between those games and Aldridge’s operation? In the Robinson’s and Gervin’s cases, their team mates were attempting to capture them as many things as you can on the final day of this summer season to secure the exact scoring name — and also in both situations, the Spurs succeeded. Aldridge’s 56 points, while shooting two overtimes to get to, came in the normal stream of San Antonio’s offense.
