C.J. McCollum scored 25 points on 10-of-21 shooting in Friday's loss to the Magic.

He's now scored 25+ points in eight straight games which is the second longest streak in the NBA this season -- Russell Westbrook had 10. That's also the third-largest streak in franchise history behind Geoff Petrie (11) and Clyde Drexler (9). He added three rebounds, two assists, one steal, three blocks and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes, and he will try to keep his streak alive against the Wizards on Monday.
Jan 14 - 1:10 AM

C.J. McCollum carried the Blazers' first unit during a 102-86 win over the Cavs on Wednesday, scoring 27 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal, five 3-pointers and a career-high four blocks.

He's simply been awesome lately. McCollum joined Anthony Davis, James Harden and Russell Westbrook as the only players to score 25-plus in at least seven consecutive games -- he's also the first Blazer to do that since Clyde Drexler in 1987. McCollum is destroying opponents with his midrange, making 64.2 percent of his 53 attempts in that seven-game span. Even though the Western Conference guards are stacked, C.J. makes a case to be an All-Star. This gem moved McCollum inside the top 20 for standard leagues.
Jan 12 - 1:48 AM

C.J. McCollum said that there's no animosity in the Trail Blazers' locker room.

"We’ve got a tight-knit group, there’s a lot of young guys who are on the same career trajectory, so we all get along well," said McCollum. "Everybody still hangs out together, there’s no animosity in the locker room, there’s no hate, there’s no jealousy." Portland has had some tough luck with injuries this season, which has had a negative impact on their record, but they're still staying together as a group.

C.J. McCollum scored 25 points on 10-of-18 shooting in Tuesday's 108-87 win over the Lakers.

McCollum has now scored 25+ points in six straight games -- that matches the career bests of Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge. The SG added four assists, one rebound, two steals and two triples in 34 minutes. He gets a matchup with the Cavaliers on Wednesday.
Jan 11 - 12:58 AM

C.J. McCollum was phenomenal on Sunday, scoring 35 points on 16-of-28 shooting with three 3-pointers and six assists, but it wasn't enough to avoid a double-OT loss to the visiting Pistons.

He sank a critical 3-pointer to tie the game in regulation, and this marks the first time in his career that he's scored at least 25 points in five straight games. Part of that had to do with Damian Lillard missing time with a sprained ankle, but Lillard was plenty active tonight with 20 points, nine boards and five assists in 43 minutes. Tonight's loss will sting for a Blazers team that is barely clinging to a playoff spot, just two games ahead of the 12-seed Lakers.

The Pistons at Blazers game has been postponed to Sunday night at 9 pm EST.

The winter weather in Portland has pushed back tonight's game one day. The Pistons and Blazers are both off on Monday night, so they don't have a back-to-back set because of it. C.J. McCollum was on Twitter earlier today wondering about if he had to set his alarm for his pre-game nap, so hopefully he can go back to sleep.
Jan 7 - 5:36 PM

C.J. McCollum hit 11-of-21 shots for 27 points, seven assists, four rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointer on Thursday against the Lakers.

Despite Damian Lillard’s (ankle) return, McCollum led the team in scoring and attempted over 20 shots. This was a prime matchup for him, which plays a big factor into his performance. However, after a nice run in the last six games, he will see a dip in production with Dame back on the court.
Jan 6 - 1:32 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 35 points during Wednesday's tough road loss to the Warriors, making 13-of-31 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs with four 3-pointers, nine rebounds, five assists and two blocks.

Damian Lillard (sprained ankle) was out of commission, so it was McCollum running the offense for the fifth straight game tonight. He was phenomenal in the first half and has enjoyed an inflated usage rate during Lillard's absence, but even with Lillard he was flirting with second-round value. He's been everything his draft-day owners wanted, and more.
Jan 5 - 1:54 AM

C.J. McCollum scored a career-high 43 points (16-of-25 FGs, 8-of-9 FTs) with five rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes on Sunday.

With Damian Lillard (ankle) sidelined, McCollum carried Portland to a road win against the Timberwolves. In the last four games, he has scored at least 20 points and has attempted at least 18 field goals. So long as Lillard is out, the Trail Blazers offense will continue to run through McCollum.
Jan 1 - 9:41 PM

C.J. McCollum scored 29 points vs. the Spurs on Saturday with two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one trey and three turnovers in 33 minutes.

He was just one of three Blazers to score in double digits, joining Allen Crabbe (11 points) and Moe Harkless (12 points). McCollum finished 10-of-19 from the field and 8-of-8 from the line, but simply didn't have enough help tonight as the Blazers lost their eighth game out of their last nine. McCollum will be a monster play once again if Damian Lillard (ankle) can't play on Sunday vs. the Wolves.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 12:28:00 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 20 points with seven assists, two rebounds, one steal and two triples in Wednesday's win over the Kings.

Making his second consecutive start at point guard with Damian Lillard (ankle) out, McCollum shot 6-of-18 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line with a pair of turnovers. He didn't shoot the ball well tonight and his owners were probably hoping for a bit more because he had scored 25+ points in his previous five appearances without Lillard dating back to last season, but it's hard to complain about this line. McCollum gets a matchup with the Spurs on Friday, but Lillard's status is up in the air.
Thu, Dec 29, 2016 12:43:00 AM

C.J. McCollum played 34 minutes, hit 12-of-23 shots, 3-of-7 3-pointers and 2-of-2 free throws for 29 points, three rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Monday's 95-91 loss to the Raptors.

Damian Lillard was out so CJM got all he could handle tonight. And given that he had scored 16 or fewer points in three of his four previous games, tonight's big line was a sight for sore eyes. Lillard could miss more time with his sprained ankle and if it happens, McCollum's usage will be through the roof this week.
Tue, Dec 27, 2016 12:53:00 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 36 points with four assists, two rebounds, one block and two triples in 39 minutes against the Kings on Tuesday.

He finished 13-of-22 from the field and 8-of-10 from the line with a pair of turnovers. This was his 10th game of the season with 25+ points and he's now scored 30+ points in his last three meeting with the Kings. He's returning second-round value in standard leagues on the season and there's no reason why he won't be able to keep it up.
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 02:04:00 AM

C.J. McCollum hit just 5-of-12 shots for 10 points, four rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes of Saturday's ugly 135-90 blowout loss to the Warriors.

This was McCollum's worst game since he hit 4-of-11 shots for eight points back on Nov. 9, but he's scored in double figures in all but two games this season, including his last 20. He'll bounce back against the Kings on Tuesday, so forget about this one and move on. Damian Lillard was also quiet by his standards, scoring 20 points with just one assists in the blowout loss.
