The Blazers might not be in the postseason this year, but some familiar faces are.

When CJ McCollum and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Los Angeles Clippers Friday night in the final play-in game, it marked nine straight seasons in the playoffs for the former Blazer.

McCollum was apart of the team’s eight previous playoff trips, but with the Portland Trail Blazers out of the playoffs this season for the first time since 2013, all fans can do is watch their former friends perform in the playoffs.

Here’s a list of former Blazers in the NBA Playoffs:

Boston Celtics

Nik Stauskas

Milwaukee Bucks

Pat Connaughton

Wesley Matthews

Toronto Raptors

Gary Trent Jr.

Chicago Bulls

Derrick Jones Jr.

Brooklyn Nets

LaMarcus Aldridge

Seth Curry

Patty Mills

Utah Jazz

Hassan Whiteside

Denver Nuggets

Will Barton

Minnesota Timberwolves

Jake Layman

New Orleans Pelicans

CJ McCollum

Tony Snell

Larry Nance Jr.


There’s a lot of representation in both conferences, and while the primary focus for the Blazers will be towards fixing the ship and getting things back on track to return to the playoffs next season, it’s nice to see some familiar faces get some run in the postseason.
