C.J. McCollum    G  Trail Blazers

 

 

C.J. McCollum (ankle) is listed as probable for Game 3 vs. Golden State on Saturday night. McCollum tweaked his ankle is Game 1 but was listed as probable for Game 2 and was able to suit up. He is fully expected to log his typical 35-plus minutes on Saturday night. McCollum was on fire in Game 1, pouring in 41 points, but crashed back down to earth in Game 2, scoring just 11 points on 4-of-17 shooting. The Blazers need an efficient and effective McCollum to show up on Saturday if they are to have a shot at knocking off the Warriors.

Allen Crabbe    G/F  Trail Blazers

 

 

Allen Crabbe (foot) is listed as probable for Game 3 vs. the Warriors on Saturday. Crabbe missed the final two games of the regular season with a foot issue but has been fine since the start of the playoffs. He is expected to play his usual allotment of minutes on Saturday night. The Blazers need Crabbe to contribute in Game 3, as his struggles are part of the reason Portland is a 0-2 hole. He has scored a total of just nine points on 4-for-15 shooting over the first two games.

Chris Paul    G  Clippers

 

 

Chris Paul carried the Clippers to a comeback 111-106 win in Utah on Friday, scoring 34 points with seven rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers. No Blake Griffin in the second half, no problem. The Clippers overcame a 14-point deficit for their largest road comeback since 2012, and CP3's 24 points in the second half were a big reason why -- also had seven rebounds in the second half. Even if BG has to miss time, the Clippers may be OK with CP3 at the helm and getting more shots. He also passed Wilt Chamberlain for 30th on the all-time playoffs assists lists. The Clippers will take their 2-1 lead to Utah again for Sunday's Game 4.

Marreese Speights    F/C  Clippers

 

 

Marreese Speights started the third quarter against the Jazz on Friday, scoring eight points with two rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes. The Clippers went with a lot of small-ball lineups, so Speights actually didn't really benefit from the Blake Griffin injury. He's likely looking at minutes around 20 for Game 4, assuming BG can't suit up.
