McCollum poured in 26 points (10-22 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and added seven assists, two rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 44 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 119-117 overtime loss to the Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals Monday. McCollum checked in just behind Meyers Leonard and Damian Lillard in scoring on the night, but the efforts of Portland's "Big Three" ultimately fell short. Like his backcourt mate Lillard, McCollum strugged with his shot over the first three games of the series, posting sub-40-percent success rates from the floor in each of those contests. His 45.5 percent shooting mark Monday, which included an impressive 55.6 percent tally from distance, was thus his best performance of the series by far. McCollum will look to play an integral role in helping the Trail Blazers build on this season's success during the 2019-20 campaign.
McCollum totaled 23 points (7-20 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 7-12 FT), five assists, three rebounds and two steals over 38 minutes in the Trail Blazers' loss to the Warriors on Saturday. McCollum led the Blazers in scoring in Saturday's loss, though he did so with an inefficient shooting performance, going just 7-20 from the field. In 12 games prior to the series with Golden State, McCollum averaged 25.6 points per game while shooting 45.5 percent from the field. Those numbers have decreased to 20.7 points and 37.1 percent respectively, and McCollum has now scored a total of 62 points on 62 shots in the Western Conference Finals. The Blazers will likely play their final home game of the season in Monday's Game 4, where McCollum will have a chance to rectify his recent shooting and scoring woes.
McCollum tallied 22 points (9-23 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one steal across 39 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 114-111 loss to the Warriors in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals Thursday. McCollum checked in just behind backcourt mate Damian Lillard in scoring for the Blazers on the night. The veteran two-guard is just 16-for-42 from the field overall over the first two games of the series, and he'll presumably need to be markedly sharper to give Portland a chance at a home victory in Game 3 on Saturday.
McCollum amassed 37 points (17-29 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 45 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 victory over the Nuggets. McCollum almost single-handedly carried the Trail Blazers offense on a night Damian Lillard struggled. Evan Turner was the second-leading scorer for the Trail Blazers with 14 points, emphasizing the importance of McCollum's big out. Portland will now move on to the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 2000, with a matchup looming against the two-time defending champion Warriors.
McCollum delivered 30 points (12-24 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and three assists across 42 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 119-108 win over the Nuggets in Game 6 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series Thursday. McCollum rediscovered his stroke at a critical time following a 5-for-16 showing from the floor in Game 5. The veteran two-guard checked in behind only backcourt mate Damian Lillard in scoring for thenight, and he's now tallied at least 30 points in three postseason games thus far. McCollum has also sandwiched a pair of 50.0 percent shooting nights around the aforementioned Game 5 clunker, and the Blazers will hope he can carry the hot hand over to Sunday's do-or-die Game 7 in Denver.
