Oden breaks out in Blazers win over Wolves


By Phil Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Thursday November 12, 2009 12:45AM

MINNEAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- With every game, maybe with every possession, Greg Oden becomes a little more relaxed, a little more comfortable with his standing in the NBA. And never was that gradual ascendance more evident than during a second-quarter fast break Wednesday night, when Oden tore up the floor like a latter-day Magic Johnson and slammed home the most memorable basket in Portland's lopsided 107-84 victory over Minnesota.

The Blazers' young center dribbled full-speed up the floor, looked one way and passed the other, then caught a return pass as he reached the basket and jammed it home to an audible "whoa... " from the Target Center crowd. Wow, nothing to this game, is there, Greg?

"I was so nervous," Oden said after a long laugh when reminded of the play. "I'm not used to that."

You'd never know. Oden, in fact, is finally getting used to lots of things in the NBA, and is arriving where he's been projected since the day he was drafted in 2007: At the heart of one of the most exciting teams in the NBA. He proved it again Wednesday by making eight of his 10 shots, notching his second double-double of the season by scoring a team-high 18 points with 11 rebounds, and leading Portland to its fourth straight win.

"I knew that it would take some time for Greg to be in that lineup, to be the center we drafted him to be," said Portland coach Nate McMillan. "Now he's there. He's not injured. We're involving him and figuring out how to play with him. He's hitting the potential we knew he had when we drafted him."

The same could be said for the Blazers as a whole, at least in the season's first three weeks. Portland's victory, all but locked up with 67 points in the second and third quarters, was the Blazers' 10th in a row over the Timberwolves. More importantly, it was their third road win in four games, and gave Portland -- now 6-3 with three stops left on this five-game road trip -- its best start to the season in a decade, since an 8-1 spurt in 1999.

"We're still working on who we want to become. We're building to be one of the best teams," McMillan said. "We're starting to understand what we need to do out there. We had 30 assists tonight -- we've got some guys who can put the ball in the hole when we share the ball like that."

That's a stark contrast to the Timberwolves, who lost their eighth consecutive game and fourth in a row by 15 points or more. While Portland earned assists on 30 of their 42 baskets, Minnesota managed just 16 assists on 34 hoops. Four Blazers piled up four or more assists, led by Andre Miller's 10; only Ramon Sessions, with five, had more than three assists for Minnesota.

"We're having trouble finding ways to score," said Kurt Rambis, now 1-8 as Minnesota's coach. "We look lost a lot of the time."

The Wolves shared the ball well in a tight first quarter, when all five starters scored at least three points. But Minnesota's cohesiveness evaporated from that point on, and the Blazers took control with a 29-12 run. Jonny Flynn led the Timberwolves with 15 points, but Minnesota hit just 44 percent of its shots and got outrebounded by Portland, 47-34. No wonder the Blazers held Minnesota below 100 points for the 12th consecutive meeting.

Meanwhile, Portland shredded the Wolves' gambling defense, making Minnesota pay for its occasional double-teams of Oden or guard Brandon Roy, who scored 14 points. Those two players combined to make 15 of their 21 shots, a big reason why the Blazers shot a season-high 55.3 percent from the field.

"Any time you have a player that two (defenders) have to commit to, it puts pressure on the defense. It becomes all about spacing and those guys making decisions with the ball," McMillan said. "Greg is slowly becoming that type of player, (and) Brandon has been that type of player for us. It becomes pretty easy basketball when you have those type of guys."

Particularly if the seven-footers can run the floor the way Oden displayed Wednesday. When Miller deflected a Flynn pass into Oden's hands at the three-point circle, the Blazers' center spun and raced up the floor, dribbling like a supersized point guard.

"His handle is better than most people think," McMillan said. "He had the break, he got wide, he looked off a defender, and he made the good pass so he could get it back."

"I didn't have time to think," said Oden, who swung the ball to LaMarcus Aldridge as he ran, then slammed home the return pass. "It was a good play on (Aldridge's) part, an unselfish play."

And the head fake in the other direction? "You saw me looking around -- I was looking for someone to pass to," Oden admitted.

Wait, so it wasn't a brilliant bluff to confuse the defense?

Oden laughed again. "I wish I was that talented," he said.

Oh well. As Minnesota can attest, he's plenty talented enough.
