The Clippers have been missing point God Chris Paul for the last 10 games after he separated his shoulder against the Mavs in the second game of 2014. With Paul out, scoring assassin off the bench Jamal Crawford has gotten a lot more run handling the offense, and hasn’t shirked that responsibility during LA’s 7-3 record in Paul’s absence. Against the Raptors Saturday night, Crawford again exploded, and ran a gorgeous double-lob with Blake Griffin on his way to a scorching double-double and the win.
Check out how fast this double-lob goes down. First DeAndre Jordan sends the outlet to Blake on the wing, who immediately fires it to Crawford racing down the opposite wing. Jamal jumps in the air to catch the pass and tosses it right back for a powerful Griffin jam. A grounded Greivis Vasquez could only look at his teammates like, “What am I supposed to do?”
Crawford finished the game with 37 points (12-of-22) and 11 dimes with just a single turnover. Griffin added 30 in the victory.
