CJ McCollum is now the eighth leading scorer in Portland Trail Blazers franchise history.
In the second quarter of Wednesday’s game vs. the Memphis Grizzlies, the Blazers guard hit a floater to score his 14th point of the game.
In doing so, McCollum, now with 9,733 points, has passed Blazers legend Geoff Petrie for eighth all-time on the Trail Blazers scoring list.
Here’s the updated top 10 on the Blazers all-time scoring list:
- Clyde Drexler (18,040)
- Damian Lillard (16,474)
- LaMarcus Aldridge (12,562)
- Terry Porter (11,330)
- Clifford Robinson (10,405)
- Jerome Kersey (10,067)
- Jim Paxson (10,003)
- CJ McCollum (9,733)
- Geoff Petrie (9,732)
- Mychal Thompson (9,215)
McCollum is now just 270 points behind Jim Paxon for seventh all-time in franchise history. The eight-year guard has notched 835 points this season in 36 games for Portland. He is averaging 23.2 points on 45.1 FG shooting and 39.0 three-point shooting to go along with 4.8 assists and 4.1 rebounds per game.
For years, McCollum has been one of the NBA’s elite and now he’ll go down as one of the franchise’s best scorers too. Congrats CJ!
