Trail Blazers hand Bucks second loss behind McCollum's big game
The Portland Trail Blazers handed the Milwaukee Bucks just their second loss of the NBA season with a wire-to-wire 118-103 win at the Moda Center on Tuesday.
Portland are now 8-3 this season and all alone in third place in the Western Conference.
The team's win on Tuesday had everything to do with C.J. McCollum as the 27-year-old guard scored a season-high 40 points on 17-of-26 shooting.
He added six assists, five rebounds and four steals.

76ers at Pacers
Joel Embiid and Victor Oladipo are two players who are turning into must-watch stars. Embiid has been dominant this season, averaging 28.4 points, 12.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists while Oladipo has not done much less as he is putting up 23 points a night. He also hit the game-winning shot on Sunday against the Celtics and just missed it Monday against the Rockets. Something exciting will happen in Indiana on Wednesday.
