C.J. McCollum scores 28 in first half, 37 for game in Blazers’ win

C.J. McCollum is going to win a lot of fantasy team owners games this season.

In Portland’s opener against a weary New Orleans team on the second night of a back-to-back, McCollum dropped 28 points in the first half (you can see that above) and 37 for the game, as Portland picked up a quality win to start the season 112-94.

His jumper was falling, he was 10-of-15 outside the paint on the night and hit 6-of-9 from three. He shot 14-of-22 overall and even when defended it didn’t matter much, he was 5-of-7 on contested shots (according to NBA.com stats). Damian Lillard added 21 points on 21 shots for Portland, plus had 11 assists.
