LaMarcus Aldridge records career best 39th double-double in win over the Pelicans Sunday.
Aldridge finished with 25 points, 18 rebounds, four assists, and four blocks in 36 minutes. Aldridge's previous double-double best for a season was 38, which he set last season in 74 games. Aldridge reached 39 double-doubles in just 66 games this season.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Tim Duncan (rest) will not play Friday against Denver.
The Spurs will take advantage of the holiday and give Duncan an extra day of rest and get ready for Saturday against the Hawks. The Spurs could go with LaMarcus Aldridge at center for Friday and use David West at power forward or they could just give Boris Diaw the start. Either way, those are the three players likely to see the extra work in Duncan's absence. Analysis: Howard Bender
