LaMarcus Aldridge caught the eyes of many after he deleted his Twitter sometime after the Spurs lost to the Warriors 120-90 Monday night in Oracle Arena.

Although it seemed that he did it as a result of the loss, Aldridge says otherwise.

“I just wanted to lock in on my season right now, it had nothing to do with that game,” Aldridge told reporters Wednesday, according to Melissa Rohlin of the San Antonio Express-News.

“It’s not anything about the game,” Aldridge said. “It’s a new adventure for me. I’ve never been in this system, with this team. I’ve never been on a top 2 team in the West.”

Aldridge didn’t play particularly well in that game. He had just five points and three rebounds in 25 minutes of play. He probably would have played more, but the game was over early in the third quarter of play.

He had a much better showing Wednesday night against the Rockets, putting up 25 points and pulling down 10 rebounds in what was a pretty good recovery game for the Spurs as they beat the Rockets 130-99 in San Antonio.

“I wanted to be better than I was the last game,” Aldridge said. “I wanted to have a better rhythm and try to put my stamp on the game. I was trying to be more in tune to the game, for sure.”

Aldridge absolutely had a better game. To tell if it was because he was deleting his Twitter has yet to be seen, because it was one game. He’s definitely off to a good start though.
