Gameday Open Thread: Blazers vs Lakers

NEWS: Greg Oden is done for the year after undergoing Microfracture surgery today, the third of his career and second on his left knee.

Ben's transcript of Chad Buchanan's press conference

The original announcement

Anyway, if you didn't see the first half tonight, you're lucky. The Blazers scored 7 whole points in the first quarter, and 30 in the half. They've cut a 30 point Laker lead down to 22 at halftime. If you're up for it, come hang out here for the second half.

NOTE: There are tons of threads to discuss Greg Oden. Since he's clearly not playing tonight, the GDT is not one of those locations. Consider it an auxilliary rule for the night. Thanks. -- Tim
