  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Flirts with triple-double

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Scores 25 in 43 minutes

    McCollum finished Sunday's 110-99 loss to the Suns with 25 points (9-25 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-6 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, one block and one steal over 43 minutes.

    McCollum's 25 points were a team high on a night when the Suns held the Pelicans to just 37.9 percent shooting as a team, including a 9-of-23 effort from beyond the arc. New Orleans should be able to get more out of Brandon Ingram (18 points, five turnovers in 39 minutes), but McCollum is the player with significantly more postseason experience, so look for him to continue shouldering a major offensive burden as long as New Orleans can manage to stay alive against the NBA's best team.

While his overall numbers weren't as prolific as the first play-in game, his timely scoring was key in New Orleans advancing to its first playoffs since the 2017-18 season. The Pelicans will have to lean heavily on McCollum if they have any chance of pulling off a first-round upset against the Suns.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Not listed on injury report

    McCollum is not listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against Golden State. However, he's only expected to play "a few minutes," according to a since-deleted tweet from his personal Twitter account.

    The Pelicans are holding out several regulars, including Herb Jones, Jonas Valanciunas, Brandon Ingram and Devonte' Graham, but it looks as though McCollum will be active for the regular-season finale. However, he's not expected to play more than a handful of minuets to begin the contest, so he should be avoided in most DFS contests. At this point, the Pelicans are squarely focused on winning Wednesday's do-or-die play-in matchup against the Spurs.
