C.J. McCollum (vertebral fracture) leads Blazers with 36 points (13-of-25 FG, 7-of-8 FT), six rebounds, seven dimes, three triples and one steal in Saturday's Game 5 loss to the Lakers.
It's over. The Blazers are now out of the playoffs and props go out to McCollum and the rest of the Blazers who put up an impressive effort against one of the toughest duos in the league. McCollum was a trooper, playing through a vertebral fracture tonight and hopefully, he'll be able recover well before the 2020-21 season begins.
