C.J. McCollum shot just 5-of-13 from the field on Sunday, finishing with 13 points, one 3-pointer, three assists, one rebound, one steal and four turnovers in 29 minutes.
Portland has won three straight games and they're tied with Denver for the No. 8 seed. McCollum's struggles tonight didn't really matter because Portland had this game in hand early, and he could have played more minutes if it weren't a blowout. Expect a more robust line in a critical home game vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday. Mar 27 - 12:23 AM

C.J. McCollum made scoring 32 points look easy during a 112-100 win over the Wolves on Saturday, making 11-of-13 from the field and all six free throws with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

Not bad on efficiency with a 102.3 true shooting percentage. Damian Lillard said McCollum is the best midrange player in the league, but McCollum said on the Blazers broadcast that he's the best "in the world." He may be right with C.J. way above league average in non-restricted paint scoring, midrange and on 3-pointers. For a guy who gets 48.3 percent of his shots on pull-ups, McCollum is vastly underrated as an elite scorer in the NBA. His fantasy owners certainly don't underrate him thanks to his top-20 value in standard leagues this season.
Mar 26 - 1:24 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 22 points with six rebounds, five assists, two blocks, one steal and no turnovers against the Hawks on Saturday.

That eight-point Tuesday dud is forgiven now and C.J. has been very effective in his other recent games. Even with that game factored into his last five outings, McCollum averaged 23.2 points, 3.4 boards, 4.2 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.6 steals and 1.6 treys on 51.1 percent from the field and 94.1 percent from the line. He's elite and has been a second-round player this season.
Mar 18 - 9:25 PM

C.J. McCollum had one of his worst games of the season on Tuesday, hitting just 4-of-12 shots and zero 3-pointers for eight points, three rebounds, two assists and nothing else in 30 minutes of a 100-77 blowout loss to the Pelicans.

CJM had scored in double digits in every game since scoring eight points against the Clippers way back on Nov. 9, so he was probably due for a let down at some point before the end of the season. Jusuf Nurkic was right there with him, and when those two are struggling, the Blazers are likely going to be blown out. McCollum should bounce back against the Spurs on Wednesday, even though it's not a great matchup for him. He scored 16 and 29 points in his previous two games against the Spurs this season.
Mar 14 - 10:45 PM

C.J. McCollum scored 34 points with six assists and five 3-pointers against the Wizards on Saturday.

He's getting hot again, averaging 27.3 points, 2.8 boards, 3.5 dimes and 3.3 treys on 51.9 percent from the field in his last four. One interesting thing on C.J. is he's only posted a 19.3 usage rate next to Jusuf Nurkic, which is down from his season 27.6. McCollum is still a top-20 player overall on the year, so his fantasy owners have to be pleased the reigning Most Improved Player improved even more.
Mar 12 - 3:03 AM

C.J. McCollum hit 8-of-16 shots and three 3-pointers for 23 points, four rebounds and three assists in 42 minutes of Thursday's 114-108 overtime win against the Sixers.

C.J. has scored in double figures in every game since Nov. 9 and is hot right now, averaging 23.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.8 3-pointers on 49 percent shooting over his last five games. Set your DVR for Saturday's matchup against the Wizards, when McCollum and Damian Lillard will be out to prove they're the league's premier backcourt. John Wall and Bradley Beal will be determined to prove them wrong and that one should be a blast to watch.
Mar 10 - 1:42 AM

C.J. McCollum hit 8-of-20 shots and scored 21 points on Tuesday, but finished with just one 3-pointer, two rebounds, zero assists, steals or blocks.

It was an oddly quiet line for CJ, but Allen Crabbe's big night (23 points) off the bench probably had something to do with it, along with him focusing on trying to at least slow Russell Westbrook down. It's going to take more than a weird stat line from McCollum to cause any concern and the fact the Blazers were able to beat the Thunder on a night Westbrook dropped 58 points is a bonus. Damian Lillard added 22 points and eight assists for the Blazers.
Mar 7 - 10:47 PM

C.J. McCollum scored 31 points during a 130-116 win over the Nets on Saturday, adding five rebounds, five assists, one block, four 3-pointers and no turnovers in 38 minutes.

It's been almost a month since we've seen C.J. drop a 30-point night with his last one coming on Feb. 7. He did get the ol' Nets bump here, but he's also catching fire from deep again after a slump last month. McCollum has made 10-of-16 from deep in his last three games to get him to 41.7 percent on the year. He's back into the top 20 for standard leagues on the season with this gem. More importantly for the Blazers, they're just 1.5 games behind the Nuggets for the No. 8 spot.
Mar 5 - 1:24 AM

C.J. McCollum needed 19 shots to score 17 points on Sunday, hitting six field goals with three rebounds, one assist and no defensive stats in 35 minutes.

One of McCollum's makes came from downtown and this just wasn't his night, as he repeatedly forced the action vs. Toronto's defense. C.J. was rolling in late January and early February, but over his past four games he's dipped to 38.0 percent shooting. It's only a matter of time before he heats up again.
Feb 26 - 8:52 PM

C.J. McCollum scored 22 points with one rebound, six assists, one block, two steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Magic on Thursday.

On the last defensive play of the game, McCollum was shaking his right arm and hand, but it looked like he just hit his funny bone. He has been tremendous all season and came in flirting with a 50/40/90 shooting line, making 48.4 percent from the field, 41.1 percent from deep and 89.6 percent from the line. The Blazers will be building around him and Damian LIllard for a while.
Feb 23 - 10:28 PM

C.J. McCollum scored 18 points during a 111-88 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday, adding two rebounds and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

The Jazz can shut down the best of them and they took care of the dynamic duo in this one. Damian Lillard was even worse, making just 3-of-19 from the field for 13 points. Lillard also had some cheers in this game with some Weber State fans showing up to give Dame some love. Both Dame and C.J. could see some of their teammates get traded, but they will have terrific value regardless.
Feb 16 - 12:38 AM

C.J. McCollum hit 9-of-24 shots and three 3-pointers for 26 points, seven rebounds and five assists in Monday's overtime loss to the Hawks.

Damian Lillard hit just 6-of-21 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points, six boards and four assists in the loss. The Blazers scored the first seven points of overtime, but the Hawks responded with 12 unanswered points and held on for the comeback win. Lillard has hit just 37 percent of his shots over his last five games, but CJM's been holding it down at 49 percent over that stretch.
Feb 14 - 2:04 AM

C.J. McCollum hit 8-of-18 shots for 20 points, four rebounds, four assists and a block on Thursday, but was 0-for-6 from downtown.

He was guarded by defensive wiz Marcus Smart for much of the night, so owners should be pretty pleased with CJM's nice stat line. McCollum came into this one shooting it lights out for the past couple weeks, but Smart made him work really hard for everything he got tonight.
Feb 10 - 1:17 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 32 points and hit the game-winning shot in Tuesday's 114-113 win over the Mavericks.

With 3.9 seconds left in the game, the Blazers inbounded the ball to C.J. and he did the rest, sinking a game-winning floater which you can check out in the link below. He finished 13-of-21 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line with three assists, two rebounds, one steal and two triples, and he scored 14 points alone in the fourth quarter and seven points in the final 34 seconds. He now has 23 games with 25+ points this season, one more than he finished with in 2015-16. He's unreal.
Feb 7 - 11:21 PM

C.J. McCollum scored 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting Sunday, to go with eight boards, two 3-pointers, one assist and three turnovers in 31 minutes.

C.J. also sent Victor Oladipo tumbling to the floor on a nice cross-over move (link below), and he was the only Blazer to score efficiently and in a meaningful way in this one. Portland is battling for the No. 8 seed out West, but even if they miss the playoffs this year, McCollum owners won't need to worry about any potential rest days as he's just 25 years old and still developing. He's been a top-15 guy all year long, and over the past month, he's worked his way into the top-10 equation in 9-cat leagues.
