CJ McCollum scores 20 in loss TuesdayJanuary 25, 2023 | 03:40 AM
CJ McCollum posted 20 points (9-22 FG, 0-8 3PT, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, and four assists in Tuesday night's loss to the Nuggets.
Writer's Analysis: The Pelicans and McCollum's performances are both faltering. The vet hasn't scored more than 25 points or shot greater than 47.1% in any of his last six outings -- five of which were losses. This is coming after a seven-game span that included 38 and 42-point showings and five games north of 47.1% shooting. It's worth noting that McCollum has had streaky weeks that follow a similar pattern this season. While performances like these aren't exactly welcomed, they aren't out of the ordinary, either.
