McCollum contributed 32 points (10-23 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds and two steals across 39 minutes during a 119-113 loss to the Warriors on Saturday.
McCollum scored more than 30 points for the second time in three games so far in the series as he posted a team-high 32 points in the loss. The six three-pointers made marked his highest total since Dec. 10. McCollum has been a great scorer so far in the series, but after he averaged 3.6 assists per game during the regular season, he has just a combined total of three assists so far in this series.
McCollum contributed 11 points (4-17 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal over 30 minutes in Wednesday's 110-81 loss to the Warriors.
After scoring 41 in Game 1 of the series, McCollum had a horrific evening on Wednesday, shooting a mere 23.5 percent from the floor with many shots going way off the mark. He had been listed on the injury report with an ankle sprain, and although he started at shooting guard as usual, he may have been feeling some ill effects from that injury. He joined the rest of Portland's starters on the bench in the fourth quarter which also contributed to his light stat line. The backcourt tandem of McCollum and Damien Lillard scored 75 points in Game 1, and combined for only 23 points on Wednesday. This will have to change if Portland has any chance to compete with Golden State. They return to Portland on Saturday which is a tough place to play, and they will most likely get Jusuf Nurkic (leg) back, but McCollum will need to regain his shot if they are to contend with the Warriors.
McCollum will start at shooting guard for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Warriors.
No surprise here, as McCollum was listed as probable heading into the evening. He had a monster Game 1, posting 41 points (16-28 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 41 minutes. His presence on the team's injury report figured to be more of a formality, so look for him to take on a full workload Wednesday.
McCollum is probable for Wednesday's Game 2 against Warriors due to a right ankle sprain, Casey Holdahl of NBA.com reports.
McCollum had monster 41 points (16-28 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 41 minutes in Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Warriors. It seems unlikely the guard would miss Wednesday's critical Game 2, barring any major setbacks to his ankle. Should he be cleared to play, the Trail Blazers may decided to restrict his minutes, as he is expected to hover around 40 minutes per contest. Look for more updates on his status to come after Wednesday morning shootaround.
McCollum provided 41 points (16-28 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 41 minutes during Sunday's 121-109 loss to the Warriors.
McCollum got hot in the first half, hitting 11 of his 15 attempts on route to 27 points, matching a Trail Blazer playoff record for most points in a half. He ended up finishing 16-for-28, dropping a playoff career-high 41 points, though his team couldn't seal a victory. While he only managed to hand out one assist, his eight rebounds and electric scoring performance likely makes up for it for those who deployed him in fantasy. Assuming he can get more help from his teammates, who only scored 34 points minus Damian Lillard's 34-point performance, McCollum will probably have a better chance of getting closer to his 3.6 assists per game average in the following games. Look for him to stay aggressive moving forward, likely seeing around 40 minutes per game for the remainder of the series, assuming the games stay close.
