LAS VEGAS (AP) -Greg Oden's foul troubles followed him to the NBA.
The Portland Trail Blazers center, the first overall pick in last month's draft, picked up three quick fouls in the opening three minutes of his professional debut Friday night in the Las Vegas summer league and fouled out with 10 fouls. League rules allow 10 fouls before disqualification.
Portland trailed by double digits for most of the game as Oden was a non-factor in 74-66 loss to the Boston Celtics. He had six points and two rebounds in 20 minutes.
Oden, who battled foul trouble during his only season at Ohio State, had four fouls in the first half and was limited to four points in eight minutes. His woes continued in the third quarter as he picked up three early fouls, including an offensive one for pushing off, in the opening 2:59.
The 7-foot, 250-pounder showed his potential late. He drew sympathy cheers for hitting a jumper with five minutes to play and followed with a monstrous block, but was hardly the force inside Portland expects.
