Just a few nights after Joe Harris broke the Brooklyn Nets’ franchise record for triples made, we had another milestone on Friday. This time, it’s courtesy of LaMarcus Aldridge.

Aldridge has had quite the journey. The seven-time All-Star joined the Nets last season but only appeared in five games as he had to suddenly retire when an irregular heartbeat caused serious concern. Fortunately, he was medically cleared to play and made the decision to return out of pure love for the game. Brooklyn was the place he wanted to be.

Now, after the game against the Indiana Pacers on Friday, which the Nets won 105-98, Aldridge was feeling grateful that he’s still able to play this game and record such a lofty achievement.

“It feels good, man. A true blessing,” Aldridge said of the record. “Definitely didn’t think it was going to happen after what happened last year. Stuck with it, fought back, and it definitely felt good to get it done and get back out there and just feel blessed.”

It was fitting that Aldridge, who has been nothing short of terrific for the Nets through six games, played such an important role down the stretch of an important win. Here was the shot, one of his patented mid-range daggers, that pushed him to the 20K club.
