Jordan Crawford - Get him out!

Jordan Crawford is a volume shooter; along the likes of J.R Smith and last year's Jarrett Jack. Crawford, however, does not have nearly the same track record as either of those guys. Crawford is not by any means a proven player in this league but still seems to believe he is entitled to his excessive share of shot attempts. Anyone who has watched the Warriors play this year has seen Crawford go 3 or 4 possessions at a time without making a single pass. Perhaps this explains why Crawford has negative +/- numbers in nearly 62% of all games he has played in this year.

In tonight's game for instance, Crawford had a series where he went 3 straight possessions without passing the ball (to anyone in blue at least). The Warriors then came down the court a fourth time with 15 seconds left and a chance to cut the game to seven. Instead, Crawford gets double teamed off a pick and roll, is reluctant to pass out of it, turns the ball over, Jamal Crawford lays the ball up for the Clips, and gives LA a 11 point lead going into the break. Although the Warriors had been playing terribly even before that play, Crawford's turnover gave the Clippers momentum which they would use to bust the game wide open.

Although a stretch, I would even go as far as saying that Kent Bazemore would be a better backup guard than Jordan Crawford. As Bazemore saw more minutes with the Lakers, his production levels increased dramatically. If we played Bazemore the same minutes we give to Crawford, I think Bazemore could of became a more EFFICIENT offensive player for us and certainly a much better defensive player.
