When Greg Oden signed with the Miami Heat this past summer, everybody was just hoping he'd find a way to get onto the court one more time and play some basketball. In the preseason, he made it on the court and dunked the ball right away. Then he made his first appearance in a regular season game in four-plus years and found a way to get a dunk immediately again. Sunday in a win over the Houston Rockets, Oden was given his second start of the season.

Tuesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Oden will start his second consecutive game. It'll be the first time since December 1 and December 5 in 2009 in which he's started consecutive games. If all remains healthy with Oden, it sounds like Erik Spoelstra is interested in making this a permanent plan for starting Oden at center.
