Since the last ALUMNI WATCH, the Portland Trail Blazer have played three games: Thursday night at home against the Denver Nuggets, Saturday night at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves, and they visited the Golden State Warriors Sunday night; the Blazers won the first two games and lost last night against the Warriors.
CJ McCollum played in all three games. His statistics:
