In 16 seasons, we have seen Jamal Crawford win 2 6th Man of the Year Awards, score 50+ with 3 different teams, make enough 3-pointers to be in the top 10 all-time, make 14+ game-winners, break countless ankles and make almost as many 4-point plays as the #2, 3 and 4 players on the list combined. What I can’t ever recall is seeing Jamal get into a fight – which is a good thing.
Crawford is such a melo guy that his first career ejection didn’t happen until a month ago and his ejection was an overreaction by the refs.
“That was the craziest ejection I’ve ever seen without going too much into it and getting in trouble.” said teammate Blake Griffin after the game. ” I’ve never seen that happen before … I heard a guy say worse things tonight and not even get a technical.”
On Sunday, Jamal picked up a tech when he got into a little altercation with an overreacting Patrick Patterson, who tried to push Crawford out of the way after an out of bounds turnover.
A Patrick Patterson v. Jamal Crawford altercation is like seeing two buddhist monks fighting over a baroo.

Crawford finished the game with just 3 points in 19 minutes. The output snapped his 12 game streak of scoring in double figures.
