Zach Collins swats 6 shots, Trail Blazers top Lakers
Portland Trail Blazers center Zach Collins scored 6 points (3-of-4 field goals) with 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 6 blocks, and 1 turnover in 26.3 minutes of a 128-119 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday.
Collins never swatted more than 3 shots in 66 games as a rookie. It's an encouraging start for his sophomore campaign but will obviously be tough to sustain. The Trail Blazers host the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday.
Collins produced 33.2 FanDuel points in the opener, almost three times as much as numberFire's projection of 11.5 FanDuel points.
