CJ McCollum is in favor of a play-in tournament to determine the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

“We had 16 games left to make a run. We had a lot of guys that were hurt, that were supposed to come back actually the week the season was shut down. So, I wouldn’t mind playing in a single-game elimination, or a best of three, or whatever the case may be to qualify for the eighth seed,” the superstar of the Portland Trail Blazers told Rachel Nichols of ESPN, via Isaiah De Los Santos of the Blazers Edge.
