Damian Lillard scored 44 points on 14-of-25 shooting (4-of-11 3PTs, 12-of-12 FTs) with three rebounds, eight assists and two steals in the Blazers' 123-117 win over the Warriors. We might be seeing peak Lillard right…

Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum combined to hit 9-of-34 shots from the field (0-for-12 from deep) in the Blazers’ 115-111 loss to the Rockets on Tuesday.
Lillard finished with 20 points on 5-of-17 shooting, four rebounds, six assists and a steal and it looked like getting torched by James Harden got him to press on the offensive end. McCollum hit 4-of-15 shots for eight points, two boards and three assists in an otherwise invisible performance.

C.J McCollum scored 21 points on 9-of-17 shooting with two triples, five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block against the Clippers on Sunday.
McCollum had a nice outing against the Clippers and the defensive numbers are icing on the cake. He had a smooth 3-pointer over Austin Rivers in the fourth quarter which essentially put the game out of reach and is instrumental in the Blazers’ 13-game win streak. Things are clicking in Portland and C.J. should have a nice ride to end the year.

C.J. McCollum made 8-of-16 from the field and finished Saturday with 16 points, six rebounds, four dimes, two blocks and four turnovers.
McCollum was efficient in this one and supplemented his already solid line with a couple of blocks for the second time in the last seven games. He’s been one of the safest plays in fantasy all season, and there’s no reason to expect otherwise as the Blazers look to continue their hot streak down the stretch.
March 16, 2018, 3:34 amC.J. McCollumSG, Portland Trail Blazers
C.J. McCollum scored a team-high 29 points on 50 percent shooting from the field and added a rebound,
three assists, three triples and a steal on Thursday.
This was a step up from his 17-point outing against the Heat on Monday. McCollum will continue to deliver the goods in the categories of points, threes and a few assists as the Blazers climb the standings to secure a better playoff seed.
March 13, 2018, 1:36 amC.J. McCollumSG, Portland Trail Blazers
C.J. McCollum scored 17 points on 5-of-11 shooting with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block on Monday.
McCollum was efficient from the floor, but he took a backseat to Damian Lillard and Jusuf Nurkic tonight as the Blazers took a big lead early in this one. He just came off a 30-point game against the Warriors though so there’s no need to worry about McCollum’s production.

Damian Lillard shot 8-of-21 in Friday’s 125-108 victory but still filled up the box score with 28 points, four rebounds, eight assists, four triples and a perfect 8-of-8 mark from the free throw line.
Lillard has been feeling it lately and it often feels like he just can’t miss. The Blazers pulled away in the last five minutes so his heroics weren’t needed but the Moda Center was hopping as if he was working more crunch time magic. Portland is pulling away from the pack as the West’s third seed and Lillard’s brilliance is a big reason why. For all his greatness, it was C.J. McCollum who led the team with 30 points tonight. He went 10-of-19 from the field with five threes, four rebounds and a block. When both guys score that much the Blazers are tough to beat. They’ve done well to take some pressure off by separating from the 4-10 bloodbath in the standings and can start to gear up for a playoff run. While the team itself is a little short of the league’s elite, Dame and C.J. can score with the best of them and make for must-watch TV.

Damian Lillard scored 37 points on 10-of-18 shooting (including eight threes) with two rebounds, one assist and two steals in the Blazers’ 111-87 win over the Knicks on Tuesday.
Lillard probably has a more well-rounded line in game that was closer and he’s been getting low-end MVP buzz this past week. C.J. McCollum added 19 points with five treys of his own to go with six boards, four assists and a steal in the win.
March 6, 2018, 1:17 amC.J. McCollumSG, Portland Trail Blazers
C.J. McCollum scored 22 points on 6-of-15 shooting with two triples, five rebounds, five assists and a steal.
McCollum went 8-for-13 at the line including two of them with 7.4 seconds left which could have put the game away, but was one of three Blazers who scored in double figures.
March 4, 2018, 2:48 amC.J. McCollumSG, Portland Trail Blazers
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.

C.J. McCollum did a bit of everything in Thursday’s win over the T-Wolves, scoring 19 points, collecting four rebounds, handing out two assists, hitting three treys, swiping one steal and blocking one shot.
McCollum has been struggling with his shot in recent games, shooting just 40.2 percent from the field in his last five. This should not be a cause for concern for his owner though, the guard should be able to swing those averages closer to his season average of 44.7 percent in the games to come.

The Blazers easily dispatched the Kings despite a down night from C.J. McCollum, who finished with 11 points, two assists and a block while shooting 5-for-18.
Luckily for Portland, Sacramento doesn’t offer much resistance. Though McCollum is still one of the more bankable assets in the game, he’s going to settle closer to the top-50 than in his recent top-30 campaigns. That’s still going to get the job done for most fantasy teams but it’s still a slight disappointment. Perhaps C.J. has one crazy production binge left in him before the season is up.

C.J. McCollum made 8-of-24 from the floor and 4-of-4 from the line to finish Saturday with 21 points, three rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer.
McCollum has to be one of the most boring players in fantasy, but there’s a lot to be said for boring consistency. He can be counted on for 20 points with a couple of assists, rebounds and 3-pointers virtually every night and owners can expect more of the same as we roll towards the fantasy playoffs.
