Earlier this season, Seagoville High School standout LaMarcus Aldridge recorded the 17,190th point of his professional career, overtaking fellow Dallasite Chris Bosh to become the highest-scoring native Texan in NBA history.

Through 10 seasons, Houston native Jimmy Butler is approaching 8,000 career points, putting Aldridge’s gaudy scoring numbers in perspective. After forcing a trade from Minnesota to Philadelphia, Butler has soared with the 76ers, knocking down a pair of game-winning buckets on the road. The four-time All-Star goes head to head with Spurs stalwart DeMar DeRozan on Monday night, in a matchup featuring two of the league’s most talented wings.



With a shrinking margin for error, San Antonio’s fortunes largely rest on elite performances from Aldridge and DeRozan in what is quickly becoming another lost season for the Spurs.
