Oden Dominates the Bucks? Portland Rolls Milwaukee. 102-85.

Seriously, typing "Oden dominates the Bucks?" makes me feel giddy, nervous, confused and excited all at the same time.  What a feeling!  I've been bagging on him all season long, but tonight, I can't.  The energy was exactly what I've been begging for and he finally brought it!  Congrats big guy, now just sustain this.

Game thoughts in fantastical bulleted format:
  • LaMarcus let Charlie Villanueva look like an All-Star.  Come on LA.
  • Greg you beast you!
  • Loving the all-around game from Sergio tonight.  Bayless who?
  • I wonder how Joel is feeling with his decreasing playing time?
  • Brandon, you need to find your old form.  This post-hamstring deal is no fun.
  • There was a Richard Jefferson sighting!  Not a bad one either.
  • Michael Redd.  -28.  Eek.
  • Time for Cleveland!  Fresh off a loss in Los Angeles!
Plus/Minus Sheet:

Quite the performance tonight from the starters I'd say.  +30 for Brandon Roy on an off night?  Just shows you the presence the opposing team senses when he's on the court.

Highlights for those of you Cavs-Lakers-ing:

And the post game interview with Oden (via Bust a Bucket):

Box score.

I was hoping Oden would come out of his recent slump with Bogut out, but 20+ points and 15 rebounds was a nice surprise. Nice to see Rudy post a double digit score too.

I'm just hoping when Ben Wallace comes to town on Wednesday, he does put his little tail between his legs again. I wish he would use this as momentum and build on it. It's obvious how good they can be with an inside presence.

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
