Quote of the Day
“I knew I’m going to make shots eventually. I ain’t going to go 80 games and shoot 33 percent from three. That’s impossible based on how I work and the shots I get, and the type of player I am. It was just a matter of time – watch the film, breaking it down, get to my spots… I had some good looks that I didn’t make, I should’ve made about eight or nine of those threes, but you can’t make every one.” – CJ McCollum after his 32-point performance vs. San Antonio
