LaMarcus Aldridge was very disappointed by his poor defense in the blowout loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday (126-101).
The big men of the Lakers dominated Aldridge and the veteran power forward/center said he has no option but to get better defensively.
“I have to watch film. I can’t get past how bad I was defensively,” Aldridge said, per Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News.
Andre Drummond (20 points, 11 rebounds), Markieff Morris (14 points, six rebounds) and Montrezl Harrell (10 points, eight boards) combined for 44 points against Aldridge and the rest of the Nets’ frontline.
On the offensive end, Aldridge had 12 points, but this didn’t stop the Lakers from crushing the Nets in Brooklyn.
