VIDEO: Did LaMarcus Aldridge Call Dwight Howard a "Pussy" After This Late Foul?

LaMarcus Aldridge corralled a loose ball late in overtime of Portland’s heart-stopping 123-120 win over Houston, and was fouled hard by Dwight Howard. Aldridge laughed, turned around, and as you can see in the video, appeared to take a verbal jab at Howard. Aldridge finished with 29 points and 10 rebounds as the Blazers grabbed a 3-1 series lead, while Howard scored 25 points and collected 14 rebounds. While Howard has had a strong series – averaging 27 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks – Aldridge has had a slightly better series (averages of 35-11-3).

In recent years, Howard has gained a reputation in the NBA as joke-happy, petulant, superstar, and it’ll be interesting to see how he reacts once this video makes the rounds. Game five is Wednesday in Houston, and his season is on the line. Nobody wants this series to end. Because you’ll hear it elsewhere – Howard’s recent playoff history: three wins, nine losses. It doesn’t mean much, but it’s been compiled in Houston, Los Angeles and Orlando. [Video H/T: Lance]
