The NBA playoffs were in full force this week, and our Sportsman this Week was dominant in carrying his team to a 3-1 series lead. LaMarcus Aldridge was an unstoppable force in leading the Portland Trailblazers to a 3-1 series lead against the Houston Rockets, including three OT games. His 35.3 PPG leads the NBA playoff scoring by a full five points (and obviously his team has needed all of them). In the three wins, he shoots 57% from the field with 12 boards and 3 blocks. His performance has certainly set the tone for Rip City and is worthy of the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
