The San Antonio Spurs have capped off a hot month of March led by their All-NBA power forward who was dominant all month long.
After a disappointing month of February that contained the worst Rodeo Road Trip in San Antonio Spurs history, the Spurs needed to come back strong in March to keep their playoff hopes alive and climb the Western Conference standings.
During the month of March, Aldridge scored 23.4 points per game with 10.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks while maintaining a strong true shooting percentage of 59.4% during that span.
The Spurs had a defensive rating of 107 when Aldridge was on the floor last month, which is much better than their season-long number of 111.4.

And San Antonio had an offensive rating of 118 while Aldridge was playing, which is an improvement over their season-long rating of 112.8 (seventh in the NBA).
Aldridge enjoyed some absolute offensive explosions while leading the Spurs to a 10-4 record during March.
The big man had one of the best games of his career in a huge road victory over Boston just over a week ago with 48 points on 20-of-31 from the field with 13 rebounds and 6 assists.
Aldridge racked up a double-double in seven of the Spurs’ 14 games in March, and the Spurs went 5-2 in those games including a home victory over the top-seeded Golden State Warriors.
At 33 years old, it’s fantastic to see LaMarcus Aldridge peaking at the end of the regular season with an eye toward the playoffs.

Aldridge has shown no signs of wearing down after missing only one game all season long, and he should be ready to carry a heavy load in the postseason.
