McCollum scored 24 points (9-23, 4-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with three rebounds, two assists, and three steals over 48 minutes in a thrilling overtime loss to the Warriors on Monday. McCollum paced the Portland offense for much of the first half, scoring 14 points on 6-for-11 shooting in the first 24 minutes. However, he cooled off considerably in the second half, missing nine of his 12 shots in the final two periods and overtime. Still, McCollum has bumped up his scoring after struggling in Game 1 against the Warriors, averaging 22.7 points over his last three contests.
McCollum supplied 22 points (8-18 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, four assists and a steal over 42 minutes in Saturday's 120-108 Game 3 semifinal round victory over the Warriors. While he played second fiddle to backcourt mate Damian Lillard's 40-point outburst, McCollum turned in a second straight solid performance of his own. He matched his Game 2 point total, while supplying some nominal contributions across other areas of the stat sheet. Just as was the case in the quarterfinal round versus the Clippers, the third-year guard has bounced back nicely from a lackluster Game 1 to eclipse the 20-point mark in subsequent games.
McCollum finished with 22 points (9-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block across 40 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 110-99 loss to the Warriors in Tuesday's Game 1. McCollum got off to a hot start, but the Trail Blazers fizzled in the fourth quarter. Overall it was a much more impressive performance than what we saw in Sunday's Game 1, but he'll have to be even better for Portland to steal a game from the defending champs here in round two. McCollum and company now have off until Saturday, leaving ample opportunity to rest and recover. With that being said, the Warriors' defense will likely continue keying on Damian Lillard and McCollum, so Tuesday's showing may be as good as it gets in terms of efficiency.
McCollum scored just 12 points (5-17 FG, 2-2 FT, 0-4 3Pt) to go along with three rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 40 minutes during Sunday's Game 1 loss to Golden State. McCollum endured a rough shooting performance versus a rangy Warriors team that held him without a three-point basket for the first time this postseason. The NBA's Most Improved Player has stepped into a large role for the Blazers this season, and he will need to perform at a much higher level if his club is to have a chance to push the defending champs deep into the series.
McCollum pitched in with 20 points (7-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four assists, two rebounds and a steal over 39 minutes in Friday's 106-103 series-clinching Game 6 victory over the Clippers. Damian Lillard's backcourt mate did a nice job of supplementing the former's team-high scoring total with his second consecutive effort of at least 20 points, and third in his last four games. McCollum came alive after a tough initial pair of outings against the Clippers, contests in which he only tallied nine and 16 points, respectively. He shot between 43 and 50 percent from the field over the last four games of the series, and averaged a solid 19.7 pints, 3.3 assists, 3.2 rebounds, 0.5 blocks and 0.5 steals over the six games overall.
