Jamal Crawford scores 53 points, 1 day after scoring 51, at Seattle Pro-Am
In 2007, Jamal Crawford became the 3rd Knick to ever score 50+ points in less than 40 minutes. But he only needed 39 to score 52 which included 16 straight points and 8 3-pointers. If that was legendary enough, Jamal joined Wilt, Bernard King and Moses Malone as the only players in NBA history to score 50+ points with 3 different teams.
We are still waiting for Jamal to score 50 with the Clippers, but in the meantime we are having a great time watching him score 50+ in Seattle. Yesterday, he racked up 51 points in the Seattle Pro-Am and today he put on an encore performance with 53 points for the DNG Wolverines!
30 of those 53 came in the 2nd half which also featured him connecting on 6 of 7 from downtown in the 3rd quarter. He also made a 4-point play in this game and he’s no stranger to 4-points plays. He became the 4-pointer leader back in 2010, beating Reggie Miller’s record of 23, and now has 21 more than Reggie and anybody else in NBA history. He even has more 4 point plays than the Boston Celtics franchise.
What else can we say about Crawford without sounding like a broken record.
