Report: Jamal Crawford wins Sixth Man of the Year award
Clippers guard Jamal Crawford reportedly wins his second Sixth Man of the Year after averaging 18 points per game this season.
Sources told ESPN.com that Crawford was originally scheduled to have received the award at Staples Center on Tuesday night before the Clippers' Game 5 victory over Golden State Warriors, but the ceremony was pushed back in the wake of the Donald Sterling scandal.
Crawford averaged 18.6 points per game this season, but shot just 41.6 percent from the field. This is the second season that the Sixth Man of the Year has finished with a sub-44 percent shooting percentage (J.R. Smith shot 42 percent last season).
The other big candidate was Taj Gibson, and in fairness, factoring 3-point shooting, Crawford had a 56.6 percent effective field goal percentage to Gibson's 47.9. But Gibson was a force defensively and produced points for a Bulls team for whom scoring points was like pulling teeth.
The award is Crawford's second Sixth Man of the Year, after he won in 2010 with Atlanta.
