One-handed LaMarcus Aldridge drops 38 in Cleveland loss

Less than a week ago, LaMarcus Aldridge announced he was having surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb. This would have meant the soon-to-be All-Star forward would miss somewhere between 6 to 8 weeks — or about 24 games — something that could have dropped Portland way down in the standings and out of the No. 2 spot in the West. Aldridge missed back-to-back games...
