    I know it’s only preseason but I think this worth noting.

    CJ got off to a slow start in Portland’s pre-season but in the next 2 games put up these #s

    19 points in 28 minutes on 7-13 shooting and 5 assists against the World Champion Warriors.

    30 points in 26 minutes on 11-20 shooting including 5-10 from 3 against the Kings. Worth noting is that CJ scored 19 of those points in the 3rd Quarter alone.

    It seems that our guy has picked up right where he left off in the playoffs.

    I may never have another chance to type this..so here goes.

    A former Lehigh basketball player is #2 in the NBA in scoring, surpassed only by reigning MVP Stephen Curry.

    Way to go CJ with 37 points.

    The last seven players with 37+ points and 6+ rebounds in a season opener are Bryant, James, Anthony, Harden, Durant, Curry and now McCollum

    CJ just misses his 1st triple double in his career with a monster game of 35 points, 11 rebounds, 9 assists, 4 steals and a block. Portland wins back to back games with Lilliard including a 30 pt blowout of Cleveland in the much anticipated matchup of LeBron and CJ or was that CJ and LebBron?

    McCollum became the first NBA player with at least 35 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists and four steals since Kevin Garnett in 2004 and the first Blazer to record that stat-line since Clyde Drexler in 1992.

    Drexler and Michael Jordan (1989) are the only other two players since the 1985-86 season to reach those numbers in a road game.

    For those who haven’t noticed, CJ is on fire lately in the absence of Dame Liliard. He is now #14 in the NBA in scoring at 21 ppg and is ave 4.3 a/g and 3.7 rpg. His efficiency has really improved.
    Of note: 4 of the most prolific scorers in the NBA all came from mid major programs. I think Fresno St. is considered a mid major.

    As we all know, CJ didn’t make the All-Star team but he was chosen to be a competitor in the skills competition.

    Tough competition

    Isaiah Thomas (2), Jordan Clarkson, C.J. McCollum, Patrick Beverley (2), DeMarcus Cousins, Karl-Anthony Towns, Draymond Green, Anthony Davis
