Crawford scored 14 points (5-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding two assists, a rebound and a blocked shot over 30 minutes in Monday's 108-100 loss against the Jazz. The former standout at Xavier rolled up 30 minutes of playing time, his highest total of the season, and he scored in double digits for the fifth straight outing and 10th time in 11 games in the Big Easy. He has also hit at least one 3-pointer in each of his 11 appearances in a New Orleans uniform.
Crawford scored 13 points (6-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt) while adding seven assists, five rebounds and a steal across 24 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 115-90 win over the Nuggets. Tim Frazier moved into the starting lineup in light of DeMarcus Cousins' (ankle) absence, freeing up Crawford to serve as the primary ballhandler off the bench. He received his largest allotment of minutes in nearly two weeks, finishing tied for second on the team in scoring and assists. Crawford should still see his share of minutes when Cousins returns, but his usage could shrivel up as he reverts to sharing the reserve backcourt touches with Frazier andn E'Twaun Moore.
Crawford scored 22 points (9-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt) while adding two rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 123-109 win over the Timberwolves. He's been taking full advantage of his second (and last?) chance at carving out an NBA career, averaging 14.3 points, 2.7 assists, 2.7 three-pointers and 2.3 boards in seven games with the Pelicans. Crawford is still only 28, so he may yet have a future in the league as a second unit sparkplug.
Crawford has signed a two-year contract with the Pelicans, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Crawford was expected to sign a second 10-day contract with the Pelicans, but after a strong showing over the last week, the two sides have instead come to agree on a two-year deal. While he likely won't keep up with his hot shooting of 50.9 percent from the field and 51.9 percent from the three-point line, Crawford should continue to get his shots with the Pelicans, making him worth a look for those in need of points and three-pointers.
Crawford is expected to sign a second 10-day contract with the Pelicans on Friday, Justin Verrier of ESPN.com reports. Crawford has provided the Pelicans second unit with a needed scoring boost over the duration of his first 10-day deal, registering double-digit points in all five of his appearances while shooting a robust 50.9 percent from the field and 51.9 percent from three-point range. While his efficiency should take a hit sooner or later, the Pelicans' willingness to extend another 10-day deal to Crawford suggests he'll remain a fixture in the rotation for at least the next handful of games. Those in deeper leagues looking for assistance in points and three-pointers should give Crawford a look.
