Game 6 started as an ugly duckling, but it transformed into a beautiful goose by the end.
Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum started out slow, through the first quarter Lillard was 2-of-6 and McCollum 3-of-6. But the Blazer backcourt showed up big as the game progressed.
Lillard finished with 32 points off 11-of-23 shooting, while McCollum scored 30 points on 12-of-24 shooting.
Obviously, Lillard and McCollum can’t do it all themselves. So, it’s a good thing Rodney Hood and Zach Collins stepped up.
Hood cashed in 8-of-12 from the floor (including 3-of-4 from three) for 25 points off the bench. Collins scored 14 points, grabbed four rebounds and blocked five shots.
Enes Kanter continued to be a warrior. Enes The Menace grabbed 14 rebounds while scoring six points through 29 minutes.
Sunday can’t get here soon enough. Game 7 in Denver, time is still to be determined.
