LaMarcus Aldridge posted back-to-back 40 point games to start the playoffs leading the Blazers to a two games to none lead over the Houston Rockets in round one of the NBA playoffs.

Aldridge is now averaging 44.5 points and 13.0 rebounds in the playoffs, out-dueling Dwight Howard, who was last to accomplish this feat. If he continues to play at this level there is no one that will be able to get in his way, so until he shows us signs of slowing down look for another big game next time he takes the court.
