MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) C.J. McCollum struggled with his shooting until overtime when a trio of field goals provided Portland with a winning boost.
McCollum had six of his 21 points in overtime, Damian Lillard scored 33 points and the Trail Blazers defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 112-106 on Monday night.
"I wasn't very good," said McCollum, who was 7 of 19 from the field at the end of regulation. "I fouled. I gave up some points to Mike Conley. Didn't make shots. But I just had to stick with it. They need me to score. They need me to execute down the stretch and have the confidence to take and make good shots."
