Joe Freeman

Stotts goes with same duo of first subs as he did in the first half, inserting McCollum and Kaman for Rolo and Dame.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers coach Terry Stotts said he would use a combination of guys to fill Blake's backup PG duties, including McCollum, Morris & Garrett.

Joe Freeman

Is CJ McCollum the Trail #Blazers' sixth man of the future? oregonlive.com/blazers/index.…

David 'Dubi' Pick

Errick McCollum, older brother of Portland guard C.J. McCollum, is a sleeper in China. He gets buckets.

David 'Dubi' Pick

Underrated in Europe, Errick McCollum dropped 34 points vs Emmanuel Mudiay who scored 7 points and fouled out in China. Via @DraftExpress2.

Joe Freeman

At last second, Stotts decides to insert Wright and McCollum along with Freeland. We have an all bench unit right now (w/ Blake, Kaman).

Kurt Helin

C.J. McCollum: ‘I hate’44-minute game dlvr.it/7Dwt3j

Mike Tokito

Batums, Kaman, McCollum will be at #Blazers' 4:30 pm commercial shoot today at Fields Park in Pearl.

Royce Young

For instance, I've seen comparisons to C.J. McCollum's. McCollum's happened on a specific play. Durant's happened over time.

Julian Mozo

#NBA Kevin Durant todavía no decidió si se operará. CJ McCollum, que tuvo la misma lesión, no se sorprendería si le demanda más de 2 meses.

Kurt Helin

CJ McCollum (who had same injury): Don’t be surprised if Durant is out longer than expected dlvr.it/7BmkW6

Joe Freeman

Disappointed in McCollum and Barton's 4 square skills. Getting dominated by kids @ Boise-Eliot during #Blazers visit: http://t.co/PxS2gpze77

Mike Tokito

SiriusXM NBA Radio has preview of #Blazers today noon-3 pm. Interviews w/Olshey, Stotts, Aldridge, Kaman, Lillard, McCollum.

CJ McCollum performs well in his surprise start at point guard for Trail #Blazers oregonlive.com/blazers/index.… http://t.co/ofOv0DK9fz

Erik Gundersen

CJ McCollum feels Kevin Durant's pain wp.me/p3CpBY-18j

Erik Gundersen

CJ McCollum made the most of his first Blazers start, leaving even Clippers coach Doc Rivers impressed columbian.com/news/2014/oct/…

Mike Tokito

Doc Rivers on CJ McCollum: "He's going to be a good player in the league for a long time."

Erik Gundersen

"He's going to be a good player in the league for a longtime." -- Doc Rivers on CJ McCollum.

Erik Gundersen

FINAL: Blazers 119, Clippers 14. CJ McCollum finishes with 19 points and 6 assists in the start for Damian Lillard.

Kevin Pelton

That drive and dish to Thomas Robinson was the best pass I've ever seen C.J. McCollum make.

Erik Gundersen

CJ McCollum having a game tonight. 16 points, 4 assists, 6/9 shooting.

Erik Gundersen

Barton gets a rest. Dorell Wright coming in with McCollum-Batum-LA and RoLo.

Erik Gundersen

CJ McCollum's night so far. He's looked pretty smooth tonight. http://t.co/eL4u6LaDzB

Mike Tokito

Mark Mason working hard to sell his "three J" call for McCollum.

Erik Gundersen

End of 1: Blazers 29, Clippers 20. Wesley Matthews has 11 points to lead Portland, CJ McCollum with 5 points in the start.

Mike Tokito

McCollum exits with five points and a steal. No assists, but also no turnovers.

Erik Gundersen

Will Barton, Chris Kaman and Steve Blake in the game now. McCollum, RoLo and Wes head to the bench.

Erik Gundersen

CJ McCollum off to a good start with 5 of Portland's first 8 points.

Mike Tokito

McCollum guarding Redick, Batum on Paul to start, which makes sense.

Mike Tokito

So, yes, CJ McCollum gets to go against Chris Paul, one of the best defensive PGs in the league.

Mike Tokito

Looks like CJ McCollum will start at PG. Makes sense in that it lets Steve Blake get time with second unit guys with whom will be be playing

Erik Gundersen

Scoreboard that did have Steve Blake listed as a starter has changed to put CJ McCollum in the starting line-up.

Mike Tokito

Stotts, by the way, said he wouldn't necessarily start Steve Blake if Lillard can't go. Teased McCollum or Barton as possible.

Mike Tokito

Here's a silly little video of CJ McCollum, Wesley Matthews in a post-#Blazers practice shooting game oregonlive.com/blazers/index.…

Mike Tokito

Stotts said when Blake was out, he told McCollum, Barton, Batum: "We have 3 playmakers, not 3 point guards."

Joe Freeman

Check that. Burks misses layup after rebounds. #Blazers wind up with ball and call timeout. After in-bound, CJ McCollum misses tough 3.

David Locke

On the next play Coach Snyder brings Booker in for Gobert so they switch every pick and Booker ends up defending McCollum.

Erik Gundersen

McCollum takes a contested pull-up 3 that falls short. Looks like Utah will win this one.

Jody Genessy

Trevor Booker was all over C.J. McCollum, forcing the Blazers guard to huck up a clanker from 3-point range. Jazz ball. 3.5 seconds left.

Mike Tokito

#Blazers, who set franchise record and led league in FT% last season, are 19 for 20 tonight. CJ McCollum is 6 for 6.

Erik Gundersen

I'm sure Portland would hope CJ McCollum can continue getting to the line in the regular season like he is in the preseason.

Joe Freeman

I like McCollum's ability to wiggle into the lane and draw contact. He's created 4 FT chances tonight with nifty handles ... and made all 4.

Tony Jones

Exum draws another foul on McCollum

Tony Jones

Exum is so explosive off the dribble. Just blew right by CJ McCollum, got to the line and drew a foul. It was like he wasn't there

Joe Freeman

Stotts goes to bench for 1st time midway through 1st, inserting Barton, McCollum and Kaman alongside LA and Batum.

Mike Tokito

Blake exits, leaving McCollum/Barton combo to run PG

Joe Freeman

This time, Stotts goes with Blake, Barton, McCollum, Wright and Kaman as first subs.

Erik Gundersen

CJ McCollum really does look like he has an extra gear this year.

Joe Freeman

CJ McCollum swishes his 1st shot attempt, a 3 near top of key. He and Barton will have a fun-to-watch preseason battle for rotation spot.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers will start Blake, McCollum, Barton, Leonard and Kaman in 2nd Q.
