Blazer win the game, but likely lose Oden for the season

PORTLAND, Ore. - -- The Trail Blazers got a very important victory Saturday night at the Rose Garden, but lost an even more important player.

Brandon Roy's driving scoop shot with three seconds to go provided Portland with a 90-89 victory over Houston, snapping a three-game losing streak.

Earlier, the mood in the Garden was somber as Greg Oden went down with a left knee injury.

An MRI showed a fractured patella. Oden will undergo surgery to repair the kneecap.

A timetable for his return was not immediately set.

"It felt like a punch in the gut," Portland general manager Kevin Pritchard said. "He's likely to miss the (rest of the) season."

Oden seemed to wrench the knee as he lifted to block a shot just 4:15 into the game. He fell to the floor, holding the knee. Medical personnel converged on the 7-foot center almost immediately as a hush fell over the Rose Garden. After several minutes, he was hoisted onto a gurney and taken to the locker room as fans rose to give him a standing ovation.

Oden, the No. 1 pick in the 2007 NBA draft out of Ohio State, has been plagued by injures his entire NBA career. The 7-footer missed what would have been his rookie season after undergoing microfracture surgery to repair his right knee in 2007-08. After extensive rehabilitation, he played 61 games last season, but was playing the best ball of his career this season. Oden was averaging 11.7 points and 8.8 rebounds and was second in the NBA in blocked shots at 2.4 per game and fourth in the league with a .605 shooting percentage.

It was the latest in a series of injuries to the Blazers, including coach Nate McMillan, who will undergo surgery Monday for a ruptured Achilles' tendon suffered Thursday at practice. McMillan was filling in because the Blazers were short of players due to injuries. He won't make the team's upcoming four-game road trip. Assistant coach Dean Demopolous will run the team in McMillan's absence.

Forwards Nicolas Batum (shoulder) and Travis Outlaw (foot) aren't expected back until late in the season. Guard Rudy Fernandez (back spasms) missed Saturday's game and was to undergo and MRI. The Blazers had only nine healthy players by the end of Saturday's game.

"We've gone through it all year long, and we just continue to get these setbacks, where guys are getting injuries that are keeping them out for awhile," McMillan said. "Greg was the most consistent player this short season as far as what he brought every night on both ends of the floor. For him to go through this, it's unfortunate for him."

But McMillan was buoyed by the victory and with the way his players overcame adversity.

"The team I've been looking for, I saw it after (Oden's injury)," the Portland coach said. "The scrappiness, the togetherness, the being connected. ... that team came together tonight after Greg went down. For the first time I've seen them play like we're capable of playing and like we played last year. We ended up pulling out a tough game against a very good team."

After Luis Scola's 12-foot jumper with 9.1 seconds left pushed Houston in front 89-88, Portland called timeout. The Blazers inbounded to Roy at the top of the key. Roy ? guarded by Trevor Ariza ? drove to the basket, scoring on an off-balance, dipsy-do layup that went off the glass and richocheted around the rim before dropping through.

After a Houston timeout, the Rockets got the ball to Brooks, whose drive to the hoop resulted in a desperate layup that didn't draw iron.

Houston (11-9) got an outstanding performance off the bench from forward Carl Landry, who collected 23 points and nine rebounds ? 13 and five in the fourth quarter ? and Luis Scola, who had 21 points and five boards. It was oh so close, which made it that much more frustrating for Rick Adelman.

"We couldn't get a stop there in the last two minutes," the Houston coach said. "We had a great chance to win. When you're playing on the road, (if) you give yourself a shot in the fourth quarter, that's what you want. We had our shot to win; we just didn't get it done."

Roy led Portland with 28 points, but the Blazers also got superlative performances from reserves Andre Miller (24 points on 9-of-14 shooting), Jerryd Bayless (13 points on 4-of-6 shooting) and Joel Przybilla (six points, 12 rebounds).

"When Greg was sitting on the floor after he got hurt, he looked at me and said, 'I'm sorry,' " Roy said. "He ain't got nothing to be sorry about. I said, 'We're going to play this game for you.' We all huddled up and said, 'We got to play for Greg, and for Travis, and Nic.' It was a good, emotional win, for us to step up and win a game for those guys."
