Without Kawhi, Spurs at least know answer to Warriors problem isn’t LaMarcus Aldridge

Thursday night’s 112-92 win by the Golden State Warriors over the San Antonio Spurs was depressing due to its complete lack of anything truly remarkable. It was not a great contest. It was not a stunning upset by the Spurs without Kawhi Leonard. It was not a dominant beatdown by Golden State to showcase their return to the juggernaut form everyone knows they are capable of when they deign to provide the requisite energy. It was not a showcase of the back and forth battle between the Spurs’ style of playing big and slowing the game to a halt that they have built specifically to counter the Warriors’ style. 

It was pretty simple. Without Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs do not have enough weaponry to hang with Golden State. The presumption remains that because we have not seen a playoff series with Leonard, and given that the Spurs led by 20 in Game 1 last summer before his injury, the Spurs still at the very least have a shot vs. Golden State. There is no evidence to come out of this game that is conclusive in regards to the Spurs-with-Kawhi-vs-the-Warriors perspective. 

However, we still need to talk about LaMarcus Aldridge.

Thursday night may have been peak modern-day Aldridge. He led the Spurs with 24 points, and led them in rebounding
