This past summer, we watched Jamal Crawford hit his (unofficial) 4th and 5th game-winner at the Seattle Pro-Am over the past 4 years. Every time he made one I just shook my head and said, “another one.” I said that because I’ve seen him knock down 15 game-winners over his NBA career and that’s why I have no problem calling Crawford one of the most clutch players of the past decade. It’s also why I had no problem saying “another one” when Jamal, who missed 8 of his first 10 shots, got the ball in a tie game with 3.6 seconds left in regulation. I was right and the Clippers came away with a 1 point preseason victory over the Blazers.
If you are wondering why they only won by 1 if Crawford hit a 2 with .2 seconds on the clock, DeAndre Jordan was hit with a tech and ejected when he ran onto the court to celebrate with Crawford when the game was still going on.
“He thought he was at the Jamal Crawford (Seattle) Pro-Am where he could run onto the court.” Said Jamal after the game about Jordan’s Shaqtin’ moment.
