CJ McCollum, Alex Len get into shoving match in Blazers-Kings game
The Portland Trail Blazers and the Sacramento Kings are both hungry to get more wins, so it’s understandable that both sides would be playing these games in a heated state. In fact, CJ McCollum and Alex Len both got into it during the game.
The two got into a physical shoving match due to McCollum not allowing Len to bully him out of a pick. Things eventually got heated up, and the Blazers shooting guard was actually ready to jump up and smack the center who is nine inches taller than him.
Hoop Central’s video showcased just how absurd the visual of McCollum and Len squaring up looked.

It’s understandable why McCollum wouldn’t let Len get in his way. The Blazers are desperate to book their spot in the playoffs after their horrible start to the season, and letting Len bump him out of his mark was out of the question. Whether he should have let his temper get the better of him is an entirely different question, however.
