McCollum managed six points (2-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 30 minutes during Monday's 115-107 loss to the Kings. McCollum has been up and down this season, struggling to adjust to spending the vast majority of his minutes alongside Damian Lillard. With Evan Turner taking hold of the primary playmaking responsibilities off the pine, McCollum doesn't have the ball in his hands as much, which has resulted in dips in his scoring and assist averages. However, the most noticeable drop-off has been from beyond the arc, as McCollum is shooting a career-low percentage from distance.
McCollum finished with 30 points (12-20 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 29 minutes during Friday's 127-96 victory over the Hornets. McCollum ended with a game-high 30 points Friday, spearheading the Trail Blazers to a comfortable victory over a hapless Hornets. McCollum has played well over the past two games although they have both come against an inferior defense. The Trail Blazers will travel to Denver to face the Nuggets in what will be a much tougher assignment.
McCollum supplied 24 points (10-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists and three rebounds across 31 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 124-112 win over the Bulls on Wednesday. McCollum took charge of the Blazers' attack on the night, putting up his second-best shooting percentage of the season (71.4) in the process. The six-year veteran now has pair of 24-point efforts in the last three games, and he's drained multiple threes in four straight contests. Despite the elite effort from the field, however, it's worth noting that McCollum has been considerably less sharp on most nights recently -- prior to Wednesday, McCollum had shot 42.9 percent or worse in nine of the prior 11 contests.
McCollum ended with 24 points (9-21 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 40 minutes during Saturday's 110-101 victory over Houston. McCollum scored at least 24 points for just the third time in his last ten games, going 9-of-21 from the field. He has struggled to get back to the form he showed just two seasons ago and currently sits outside the top 50 for the year. His lack of defensive numbers really hurt his overall value and owners should probably just accept that this might be who he is now.
McCollum logged 10 points (4-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, five assists and two rebounds across 32 minutes in Friday's 111-109 loss to the Thunder. It wasn't a great shooting night for McCollum, and the game flow really didn't come his way in the game, although he did dish out five assists in the loss. McCollum's totals are often tied to Lillard's performance, and the two are known to often exchange standout games back-and-forth, although that scenario was more prevalent last season. Portland plays their best when both guards are humming on all cylinders, and neither of them had a superlative game on Friday.
