Great to see Greg Oden back in the lineup. Greg gets to play and the Blazers get another victory beating the Heat in Miami 104-96.
Oden played 16 minutes and had 3 pts, 2 rebs and 2 blocked shots. Afterward he said he felt good Blazer fans should feel good because hopefully, Oden can put the injuries behind him and keep improving. He has a lot of adjusting to do to the NBA game and his conditioning will get better with each game. But it sure is entertaining watching the big fella play.
And how about Rudy Fernandez? He hit 5 of 5 shots in the fourth qtr and finished with 25 pts and led everyone.
Before the road trip back east I thought a great trip would be 2-2. Now, I'm thinking 3-1...but that could change again after Friday's game at New Orleans.
Enjoy Blazers fans because it's going to be a great season.
