2008: Jamal Crawford drops 50 points on the Bobcats, becomes 4th player to score 50 on 3 teams
On December 20th of 2008, with Stephen Jackson and Corey Maggette out with injuries, Jamal Crawford stepped up for the Warriors and dropped 50-points on the Bobcats in a 110-103 victory and became the 4th player in NBA history to ever score 50+ points on three different teams; Wilt Chamberlain, Moses Malone and Bernard King are the other three greats with this accomplishment.
It was a nice bounce back game after only scoring six points on 3 of 15 shooting the night before.
“I was just out of it yesterday,” Crawford said. “I got mad [at myself] yesterday and I played horribly because of it.”
Against the Bobcats, Crawford hit 14 of 26 shots, including 5 of 8 from downtown and 17 of 18 free throws.
“I feel like I can pretty much get any shot I want,” Crawford said. “I let people off the hook by settling for jump shots.”
