Since the last ALUMNI WATCH, the Portland Trail Blazers have played two games: Saturday night at home when the Blazers edged the Toronto Raptors 106-103, and tonight in Washington as the Wizards downed the Blazers 100-90. With the win, the Wizards move to above .500 for the first time since 2009.
CJ McCollum has played in both games. His statistics:
Saturday vs. Raptors: 14:07 Min, 4 Pts (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 1 Reb, 1 TO, 1 PF, +4
Tonight @ Wizards: 10:31 Min, 0 Pts (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 2 Reb, 2 TO, 1 PF, -8
CJ is in a lull right now having only scored four points over his last three games and he has only made one of nine shots in that span. The Blazers continue their trip to the East Coast on Wednesday night in New York to play the Knicks. CJ will most likely be guarding Iman Shumpert who is battling a shoulder injury but he did play 24 minutes tonight against the Bucks. Shumpert averages 7.1 Pts, 4.8 Reb, and 1.9 Ast in about 27:41 minutes per game. This game will be on national TV Wednesday on ESPN at 7pm.
