Holdahl: LaMarcus Aldridge Deals With Double Teams

Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com with some quotes from Portland Trail Blazers All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge on dealing with constant double teams during Friday night's game against the New Orleans Hornets. ------------------------------- "Coach Mont [Monty Williams] made me feel like I'm going to get double-teamed even more now," said Aldridge, half joking. "I felt like after last night, getting called an All-Star and then playing these guys, I feel like I'm not going to be able to play anymore! I feel like my one-on-one play is done now. I'm going to try to become a better passer. That's how I felt tonight. I was like, man, every time I took one dribble they double-teamed like clockwork." ... "If we're getting double-teamed and we're not making them pay, then that bothers me," said Aldridge. "As the game went on we started getting to the basket, Jamal (Crawford) started making shots, Ray (Felton) made some threes and I feel like that's when I started feeling better about it, because if I'm getting taken out of the game and we're not getting nothing from it then I'm getting frustrated. I'm not doing my job. But if I'm forcing them to play me and we're scoring out of it, that's what I want. I don't mind not scoring, but we have to get something out of it." ------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
