LaMarcus Aldridge will get most of the credit for the Trail Blazers 106-104 win last night against Dallas and, to his credit. he did hit the game winning shot. Trailing by 21 points in the third quarter, he and the rest the Trail Blazers could have easily chalked this game up, settled for the loss, went home and watched Catfish But the budding Blazer squad battle back for the win behind Aldridge’s shot and J.J. Hickson’s steady play.
Hickson recorded his 25th double-double of the season (silent all-star snub?), scoring a season high 26 points and grabbing 15 rebounds. Hickson, playing in the Nike Hyperdunk 2012 with its FlyWire constructed upper, is always a threat on boards because of how quick his second jump is. The Hyperdunk 2012 and its lunarlon midsole is the perfect padding for Hickson to land and propel in a secure fit.
