Crawford registered 21 points (7-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, two rebounds and one steal across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 115-98 loss to the Warriors. With the Clippers trailing by 18 points after one quarter, coach Doc Rivers allowed his backcourt reserves to try to dig out of the deficit. While it wasn't enough for the Clippers to make the game a truly competitive affair, Crawford still took advantage of a season-high minutes load to reach the 20-point mark for the second time in three games. Crawford has now hit double digits in the scoring column in nine straight games, averaging 14.7 points to go with 2.0 assists, 1.7 three-pointers and 1.6 rebounds per contest.
Crawford tallied 14 points (4-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 2 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes during Sunday's 111-102 loss to the Pacers. Crawford extended his streak of scoring in double-digits to eight games in a row, but failed to hit a three-pointer for only the fifth time this year and had to do most of his damage from the free throw line. The 36-year-old is continues to struggle this year, as his 12 points and 1.5 rebounds per game are his lowest over the last 15 seasons.
Crawford generated 17 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists and one steal across 22 minutes in Monday's 127-95 win over the Nets. The five assists were a season-high total for Crawford, but his fantasy value lies almost exclusively in his scoring and three-point production. The reigning Sixth Man of the Year isn't even contributing in those areas as well as he normally has, with his 11.2 points and 1.2 three-pointers per game representing his worst marks since the 2002-03 campaign, when he was a member of the Bulls.
Crawford scored 15 points (3-12 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 8-8 FT) and added four steals, three rebounds and one assist across 26 minutes in Thursday's 114-106 win over the Trail Blazers. Crawford's lone three-point basket helped cap the Clippers' 16-0 second quarter run, but the sixth man was otherwise inefficient from the field, with the flawless performance at the free-throw line representing his only saving grace. The Clippers are content to live with Crawford's occasionally erratic shooting for the scoring lift he often provides when Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are enduring off nights, but fantasy owners shouldn't rely too heavily on the veteran guard, who is largely just a two-category play (points and three-pointers) at this stage of his career.
Crawford paced the Clippers bench in Monday's 104-78 preseason loss to the Jazz with 10 points (3-10 FG 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists and a rebound over 22 minutes. Crawford had trouble finding the net from anywhere but beyond the arc Monday, but the pair of threes he drained propelled him to the scoring lead among the second unit in what was his second double-digit scoring effort of preseason. The 36-year-old begins his fourth Clippers campaign once again slotted in to the sixth man role that he's excelled in over the prior three seasons.
