His numbers for the season are respectable if a bit inefficient. His numbers over the last 10 games are awesome.
Seems you are coming full circle but you still want to trade him. Maybe they do one day, but for today, I enjoy watching him play for us. I just went back to read some of the early posts. People liked the idea of Crawford back then before it became board think that he is the worst and we need to trade him for a ham sandwich. Folks like the idea of him with Wall and Nick as a 3rd guard. I think what we have now is an upgrade to that model. Big picture, things are working out. They upgraded from Nick.
If the rookie keeps up what he started 3 games ago, Beal is going to be a much more complete player then Nick was. Beal rebounds, drives, etc. Crawford keeps improving his numbers year over year and he is obviously a big ball type player. And as you pointed out, he is on a min hot streak again like he had earlier in the year. Keep in mind. He missed a game only 3 games ago with a bad ankle which he has been playing on for much of the year.
I remember a post I did a while about reviewing Crawford. Mostly it came down to him improving his straight on 3 ball and getting more foul calls while driving. If he could do that, kid is a beast.
I like were this team is headed. We haven't seen the fruits of the moves yet as wins, but it is starting to add up.
I'm excited to see that rotation. It has a little bit of everything. Temple and Price make for a good combination backing up PG. One tall that can defend 2 or 3 slots. One smaller and quicker PG/SG combo type that can guard the speedy PGs. Plus, Price as a back up PG won't need to do as much. i.e. carry the starting job. In that role, he can shoot some 3 balls as well which is capable of doing.
For SG - as mentioned. If Beal is really going to start hitting 3 balls like he has the last 3 games 8-15, then this is a game changer for the team. I have zero problem with that Beal starting if he approaches the game like he has the last 3 games. None at all. Beal is playing more like a man and his game face has changed. You can see it. Now add that Wall is returning.
Oh yeah. This is going to be fun.
As for Crawford. This has been the year of Big Ball becoming a legit NBA player. He is going to have a long career. I can see that now.
Best 4-27 team every for sure. Healthy, this team is going to be fun to watch and they will clearly win more games.
