Mike Richman

CJ McCollum just ended his pregame warmup with a 360 (er 270) dunk. Sneaky hops.

Erik Gundersen

Hot take: CJ McCollum will make a 3 in this series. Tons of open looks. Just not going down.

David Locke

Worst PAAC in playoffs CJ McCollum -6.7 pts per game Damian Lillard -6.3 Zach Randolph -5.8 Pau Gasol -5.7 Boris Diaw -5.3 Kyle Lowry -5.1

Kerry Eggers

McCollum converts that reverse layup, now 3-17 from field in series. Lillard is 0-10 from 3 in series

Mike Richman

McCollum in for Allen Crabbe. Stotts sticking with Lopez longer here than in the 1st Q.

Erik Gundersen

Lee-Conley-Udrih: 13-21 Lillard-Batum-McCollum: 6-22 Make or miss league. 50-39 Memphis at halftime.

Kerry Eggers

So far, Lillard, Batum and McCollum are combined 3 for 16. That's not gonna get it done

Erik Gundersen

Tony Allen out there ball-hawking. Blazers can't put the ball below their waist. Also…Lillard is 1-for-6, McCollum 1-for-5.

Tony Jones

very good move by Terry Stotts to play CJ McCollum with the second unit and start Allen Crabbe

Mike Richman

CJ McCollum on the board with a semi-transition floater. He was 0-for-4 in the paint in Game 1

Mike Richman

Jeff Green replaces Tony Allen for Memphis. CJ McCollum and Meyers Leonard in for Crabbe and Lopez for Portland.

Kerry Eggers

Looks like @Allen Crabbe starting at 2 guard in place of @CJ McCollum. Makes sense. CJ will get more scoring opps off bench

Mike Richman

Trail Blazers shootaround: Meyers Leonard on floor spacing, CJ McCollum on bouncing back s.oregonlive.com/iPlTQNX

Kevin Pelton

This was a night where the Blazers could've used a spark from C.J. McCollum, and it hasn't been there.

Mike Prada

That was a fantastic Conley pocket pass to hit Gasol before McCollum arrived with the nail help.

Mike Richman

McCollum comes all the way across the lane to help on a Gasol-Conley pick and roll ... Courtney Lee spots up for a wide open 3

Mike Prada

Tony Allen was so far off C.J. McCollum and the Blazers didn’t notice

Amy Schwartz

CJ McCollum looking better than Damian Lillard right now. #PORatMEM

Mike Richman

CJ McCollum is the first non-Aldridge Blazer to score. 10-6 Grizzlies.

Mike Richman

CJ McCollum gets introduced first in his first career playoff start. He's played 24 minutes across 6 playoff games coming in.

Baxter Holmes

Blazers starting bench spark-plug CJ McCollum at SG in Game 1. He’s got three starts all year but has been hot: 13.5 ppg in last 15 games.

Erik Gundersen

CJ McCollum is getting the start in Game 1. Here's our story on him from our playoff preview columbian.com/news/2015/apr/…

Jason Quick

Blazers starting CJ McCollum in Game 1 at SG

Joe Freeman

CJ McCollum will start at SG for the #Blazers in Game 1 vs. the Grizzlies.

Ronald Tillery

Jeff Green listed as starter for Griz alongside Conley, Lee, Z-Bo and Gasol....CJ McCollum starting for Blazers instead of Allen Crabe

Mike Richman

No Arron Afflalo tonight. Terry Stotts declined to name a starter so take your pick between McCollum or Crabbe for next hour.

Erik Gundersen

Excited, but as always, playing it cool. My playoff feature on CJ McCollum: columbian.com/news/2015/apr/…

Mike Richman

For what it's worth, latest game notes from the Blazers list CJ McCollum as the starting shooting guard.

Mike Richman

Injury updates from Memphis: Arron Afflalo is 'doubtful' for Game 1; plus updates on CJ McCollum and Alonzo Gee s.oregonlive.com/OXaoEGR

Amy Schwartz

Afflalo is doubtful. Gee (foot) is questionable; McCollum, Batum,and Kaman are probable for Sunday at Memphis.

Erik Gundersen

Other updates from the Blazers: Kaman, Batum and McCollum are probable. Alonzo Gee (foot) is questionable for Game 1.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers CJ McCollum is going through an extensive workout with Dame and asst coach David Vanterpool. Ankle looks fine.

Erik Gundersen

CJ McCollum making hard cuts and quick moves off the dribble. Looks like the left ankle is just fine.

Amy Schwartz

CJ McCollum and Nic Batum shooting. Dorell Wright on a treadmill and Aaron Afflalo was doing some kind of workout when #Blazers prax opened

Zach Lowe

Blazers should feel safe playing Lillard/McCollum against most MEM lineups. Banged up as they are, I think POR has a fighting chance.

Amy Schwartz

This was 24 weeks ago. @Damian Lillard knew. @CJ McCollum #Blazers http://t.co/k6Nu4tKWRr

Joe Freeman

Worth noting: Trail #Blazers' Nicolas Batum and CJ McCollum said they will play in Game 1 of the Western Conference playoffs.

Bigger concern for #Blazers: injuries to Batum, McCollum and (perhaps) Kaman. They end regular season Wednesday at Dallas.

Erik Gundersen

CJ McCollum (left ankle sprain) leaves Monday's game against OKC wp.me/p3CpBY-1wK

Mike Tokito

Boy, this is getting ugly with the injuries, with McCollum adding ankle sprain. What's the procedure to forfeit?
