LaMarcus Aldridge went off, again, this time for 27 points, 15 rebounds, an assist, and two steals in the win over the Raptors to snap their two-game losing streak.
Aldridge posted his 30th double-double of the season and his third in as many games. It was the second game in a row that LMA posted 27 points and 15-plus rebounds and he is averaging 25.8 points, 12.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.2 blocks over his last five games.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
