11 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 0 steals, 0 blocks in 35 minutes in a 127-122 loss @ Nets
The Clippers’ breakdown from a #1 seed to losing to the Brooklyn Nets has oddly come adjacent to Crawford shooting poorly.

4 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 0 steals, 0 blocks in 13 minutes in a 120-101 win vs Rockets
Diaw isn’t asked to do much for the Jazz, likely until their playoff run. His four points and two rebounds are just enough.
11 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 0 steals, 0 blocks in 26 minutes in a 120-101 win vs Rockets
Similar to Diaw, Johnson’s impact will likely be better felt when the season gets closer to its’ end. But, tonight he shot 60% from behind the arc, and that always helps.
9 points, 0 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 0 blocks in 20 minutes in a 112-103 win vs Rockets
Mack racked up some quick offense for Quin Snyder’s team. He scored 9 points in only 20 minutes, while shooting 80% from the field.
3 points, 1 rebound, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 block in 23 minutes in a 118-101 win vs Cavs
The only relevant play from Terry came while he was on the bench. J.R Smith came over to show his respects to the Hawk legend. Only problem was that the ball was live.
16 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assist, 1 steal, 0 blocks in 16 minutes in a 105-88 loss vs Pelicans
Williams couldn’t salvage this game from Anthony Davis’ grasp tonight. Davis put up 40 and 15 at home, and the Lakers were without D’Angelo Russell and Nick Young, who left the game with an Achilles injury.
Best Performance of the Night by a former Hawk
Sending a game into double OT seems to be fun. Unless you’re on a “championship contender” and the opponent is a team that seemed to have a tangible chance to not win a single game over the course of the 2016-17 season. Crawford always has had a clutch gene, but there is no reason that it should have had to been unleashed upon the Brooklyn Nets.
