Blazers' McCollum hopes playoff success translates to next season
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) After his Game 3, 4 and 5 breakout performances, Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum said he hopes his increased production is a step toward a more productive year next season, repors CSNNW.com.
"You kind of leave your stamp on how you perform," he said. "It was big for me, but big for our coaching staff to see how we develop."
Over the final three games of the playoff series against the Grizzlies, McCollum scored a combined 77 points. During the regular season, he averaged 6.8 points over 15.7 minutes in 62 games.
Blazers' C.J. McCollum scores career-high 33 in Game 5 loss
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum scored a career-high 33 points Wednesday on 12 of 20 shooting, including 7 of 11 shooting from behind the arc, but it wasn't enough to stave off elimination as the Blazers fell 99-93 to the Grizzlies in Game 5 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.
McCollum rode his amazing shooting performance to 39 minutes of action off the bench, with starter Arron Afflalo (zero points, 0 of 2 shooting) playing just 14 minutes. The Blazers were able to keep the game close until going cold in the middle of the fourth quarter, allowing the Grizzlies to put them away for a 4-1 series win.
The Blazers are entering an offseason of uncertainty with many of their players, highlighted by star LaMarcus Aldridge, potentially reaching free agency.
Trail Blazers list guard Arron Afflalo as doubtful for Sunday's game
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) The Trail Blazers have listed guard Arron Afflalo as doubtful for Sunday's opening round game against the Grizzlies with a shoulder injury, the team announced.
Afflalo missed the final three games of the regular season with the injury. If he is unable to go, CJ McCollum would likely fill in. Also listed on the injury report are Alonzo Gee (foot) as questionable, McCollum (ankle), Nicolas Batum (knee) and Chris Kaman (back) as probable.
The Trail Blazers are currently 5 1/2-point underdogs against Memphis
Trail Blazers' CJ McCollum able to practice on injured ankle

McCollum is questionable for the opener of the playoff series against Memphis with an ankle injury.
Allen Crabbe could get start for Trail Blazers in Game 1
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Shooting guard Allen Crabbe could get the call to start the first game of the Trail Blazers' playoff series against Memphis, per Oregon Live.
Assuming Arron Afflalo remains out with a shoulder injury, coach Terry Stotts likes Crabbe's fit in the lineup better than CJ McCollum, who started the last three games of the season.
"I think Allen complements Damian (Lillard) and (LaMarcus Aldridge)," Stotts said, "as far as being defensive minded, not needing shots, not needing the ball."
"We need to be good at both ends of the court and it needs to mesh at both ends of the court," Stotts added. "And Allen brings a defensive mindset. And I think you've seen he's shooting the ball with confidence. It's not like he can't play offense. There are players in the league who come in and they're strictly defenders. But he was a scorer in college and he can help us at the offensive end. I think he plays off the ball a little bit more, whereas CJ plays with the ball. I think it's all about trying to maximize what each guy can bring."
|C.J. McCollum found playing time pretty hard to come by for most of his first two seasons in the NBA, as the Trail Blazers leaned on their bench less than just about any team in the league. However, that started to change last season when Wesley Matthews went down with an injury, as he averaged 15.6 points per game in the month of April. He then went on to average 17.0 points in the team's five-game playoff series loss, even forcing his way into the starting lineup before long. He should be a fixture in the starting five this season, with the Blazers turning over four of five roster spots, and you have to like the potential he showed late last season. McCollum may not do much ballhandling with Damian Lillard on the floor, but he might be the team's second option offensively, and is worth targeting in the later rounds on Draft Day as a breakout candidate.
