Portland Trail Blazers
CJ McCollum broke out of an extended shooting slump to score thirty-five points in twenty-eight minutes against the 76ers on Sunday night.
The Trail Blazers led by more than forty in the fourth quarter and as a result, the starters had a light night. McCollum’s twenty-eight minutes led the starting unit.
Speaking of the starters, Evan Turner is back in the first five with Mo Harkless missing another game due to a sore knee. He should be back soon, though, which may send Turners back to his job of leading the second unit.
Zach Collins was just a freshman when he left Gonzaga and he’s starting to look like the sort of productive player that it at least seemed like many people doubted he would become when the Blazers drafted him 10th overall in 2017.
He’s taking more shots than last season and making them more often (48.5% this season, up from 40% last year). He’s been more aggressive this season on the glass, too. There’s a ceiling here that he’s fast approaching but there is something to be said about taking a guy in the lottery who simply fulfills his potential, even if it isn’t as high as guys taken after him.
The Kings became the Lakers’ first win since LeBron James went out on Christmas. LA beat the Kings by seven at the Staples Center on Sunday night behind twenty-six points from Kentavious Caldwell-Pope off the bench, twenty-two from Josh Hart, twenty-one from Brandon Ingram and eighteen from Kyle Kuzma.
The Kings, meanwhile, got some scoring out of Fox, Hield and Bogdanovich but not enough from elsewhere. As teams key in on those guys, another scorer stepping up for Sacramento has become more important.
That guy should be Marvin Bagley, except the second overall pick in the most recent draft has missed the last eight games with a knee injury. He’s been productive when he’s been on the court but his absence is starting to hurt the Kings, who are just two games over .500 now.
A big game from Nemanja Bjelica wouldn’t hurt. He’s someone who could get off in this game as a little mismatch at the four.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction: Sacramento digs in and gets a win.
Interesting to see how this game will be lined. I’m guessing it will be somewhere close to a pick. So I’m picking the Kings. If Fox digs in and slows down Lillard, the Kings can take advantage at home. I don’t think it gets much over 200 total, either.
