Goes for 21 points in loss
McCollum was remarkably consistent with his scoring figures throughout the series, as he ended with 21 or 22 points in five of the six games while attempting between 20 to 22 shots in four of those contests as well. The shooting guard averaged 20.7 points while shooting 43.9 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from three-point range in Portland's first-round exit.

Double-doubles in playoff exit
Lillard recorded his fifth double-double of the series Thursday and also surpassed the 25-point mark for the fifth time, but his efforts on the offensive end of the court were not enough to carry the Blazers to a potential Game 7. Lillard struggled a bit from deep in Game 6, but that shouldn't hide the fact that he delivered an impressive performance across the board throughout the series. He averaged 34.3 points, 10.2 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game as Portland got trounced in the first round.

Scores 17 in playoff exit
Powell failed to reach the 20-point mark once again, and he reached that tally just once throughout the entire series. The former Raptors wing settled in as the Blazers' third-best scoring threat during the postseason run, and while he had some decent performances, he was wildly inconsistent as well. He averaged 17.0 points per game while shooting 50.0 percent from the field and 38.5 percent from three-point range during the first-round series.
