CJ McCollum just went nuclear.

The Portland Trail Blazers shooting guard poured in 28 points in the first quarter against the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night, a franchise record for single-quarter scoring (breaking the previous record of 26 held by Damian Lillard), the most any player has dropped in a quarter this season, and the most anyone has ever scored in a quarter against Chicago.

As impressive as the point total was the efficiency with which he accrued it, shooting 11-of-14 from the field and 4-of-5 from 3-point range, many of those jumpers being the contested, step-back, high-degree-of-difficulty variety. He outscored the Bulls by nine points all by himself in the frame, posting a plus-24 in 12 minutes.
