Crawford provided 20 points (8-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, and three assists in 32 minutes during Sunday's 104-91 loss to the Jazz in Game 7. Crawford led a late spark that helped keep the score close, but it wasn't enough for the Clippers to advance. The 37-year-old guard stepped up and played well with Blake Griffin (toe) sidelined, averaging 15.3 points (on 49 percent shooting), 2.5 assists, 1.5 rebounds, and 0.5 steals in 28.8 minutes from Game 4 on. Depending on what happens with Griffin and Chris Paul this summer, Crawford could be relied on even more next season.
Crawford tallied 25 points (9-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal across 31 minutes in Sunday's 105-98 loss to the Jazz in Game 4 of the series. With Blake Griffin (toe) having been ruled out for the remainder of the postseason, the Clippers were in need of one of their secondary offensive options to step up in Game 4, and Crawford ended up being the main beneficiary of the extra shots that were available. He finished second on the team in scoring behind Chris Paul, with the 25 points marking Crawford's most since March 25, which also came in a game against the Jazz. Crawford's efficiency likely won't be nearly this strong over the remainder of the series, but he should at least continue to see ample volume on the offensive end now that Griffin is out.
Crawford compiled eight points (4-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt), two rebounds and one block over 29 minutes during Saturday's 97-95 loss to the Jazz in Game 1 of the Western Conference first-round playoffs. Crawford and Mareese Speights co-led the second unit in scoring, but the veteran guard was largely inefficient overall. He shot just 33.3 percent overall while coming up empty from behind the arc, and was also the primary defender on Joe Johnson when the latter drained his game-winning shot. Despite a generally pedestrian effort, Crawford, who averaged a career-high 17.3 points in the postseason a year ago, will be counted on to serve as an important source of offensive production off the second unit during the remainder of the series.
Crawford supplied 19 points (6-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two assists and one rebound over 30 minutes in Monday's 125-96 win over the Rockets. Crawford's point total led the second unit, and he's now taken double-digit shot attempts in two consecutive games. The 37-year-old's shooting can certainly take a dive from time to time, but he's posted a 45.8 percent (11-for-24) success rate from the field over the last two contests. His experience and offensive contributions figure to be key in both the regular-season finale against the Kings and the upcoming playoffs.
Crawford had zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound, one assist, and one steal in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 112-101 win over the Mavericks. Crawford went scoreless for the fourth time this season, with the first dud coming back on Jan. 14. Crawford had recently been doing a solid job of picking up the slack with Austin Rivers (hamstring) sidelined, but he has just seven points (on two-of-nine from the field) in the first two games of April. Crawford and company have off until Saturday's matchup with the Spurs, one of the few teams that kept the spark plug from scoring (on Feb. 24). However, the Spurs might be resting players since they are locked into the second-best record, so Crawford could have an opportunity to bounce back in a big way as his team looks to catch the Jazz for fourth place in the Western Conference standings.
