C.J. McCollum did the heavy lifting in Saturday’s 108-100 win over the visiting Thunder, shooting 10-of-20 to finish with 28 points, eight rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks and two threes.
McCollum’s shooting sits at .406 over his last five even including this game, so it was good to see him right the ship a bit. The Blazers have been able to patch together six straight wins even with C.J.’s struggles from the field and they could quickly move away from the Western Conference pack if he goes on one of his binges. While his shooting is down on the year, he’ll still be a solid top-45 fantasy option. McCollum’s big game had extra importance tonight, as it came amidst some struggles for Damian Lillard (20 points, seven assists but 5-of-18 from the floor). You’ll never need to worry about this duo, so don’t sweat any blips on the radar.
