Clippers’ Jamal Crawford Won Sixth Man Of The Year For The Third Time In His Career
Los Clippers’ Jamal Crawford becomes the first player in NBA history to win the Sixth Man of the Year award three times.
Crawford won his first award back in the 2009-10 season with the Atlanta Hawks, and now has two with the Clippers. He’s always known for making bad shots off the dribble. But over the years, he was at his best off the bench, making the Clippers a title contender.
Early in the season Crawford was off to a slow start, shooting 31 percent from three and 36 percent overall. When Blake Griffin got injured during the Christmas game, His shooting got to 42 percent and 35 from three. By the end of the season, he finished with 14 points, 2.3 assists and o.7 steals.
Others like Andre Iguodala (Golden State Warriors) and Enes Kanter (Oklahoma City Thunder) were in position to win the award due to their regular season success. But Crawford deserved the award, and will certainly be a big factor for the Clippers to have a deep postseason run.
