The crowd chanted "MVP" as the power forward scored a season-high 38 points during the 111-104 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The 28-year-old told reporters: "Just surreal. It was humbling to have that moment here. I've been here so long and I've had very few of those type of chants here. So that was fun. I thought that made the night complete for me."
Coach Terry Stotts added: "I don't know if I have the words, to be honest. Offensively, obviously he can score. But I liked his toughness, I liked his leadership, I liked his competitive fire. As much as he played very well, it was a lot of the intangibles that I really appreciated from him tonight."
Aldridge has averaged 23.5 points per game for the Western Conference leaders so far this season.
