Playing without Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and J.J. Redick, the Clippers got some big step-up performance from The Truth, The Life of Pablo, Cole World and the man who deserves to become the first 3 x 6th Man of the Year – Jamal “Sky’s The Limit” Crawford.
Crawford dropped 30 points and with 0.2 seconds left in OT, hit his 2nd game winner of the season and “15th” of his career. The reason why I wrote “15” is because it’s an unofficial stat but back in December, after he buried the Pistons with a game-winner, I did some number crunching and came up with 14.
“I feel comfortable in those situations,” Crawford said after Friday night’s victory. “It was just a read at that point. Wherever I was in range to feel comfortable – and I felt comfortable with that shot.”
And I feel comfortable saying Jamal, who also dropped 32 and 7 against Westbrook and the Thunder last week, deserves to become the first 3 x 6th Man of the Year. And his teammates agrees.
wow great team win!! if @JCrossover isn't 6th man of the year I don't know who is!

For fans of trivia, when Crawford won the award in 2013/14 he became the first player to ever win the award with 2 different teams and at the age of 34, he became the oldest player to ever win it. He is now 36.
