IFWT_Jamal Crawford Sixth Man

Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Jamal Crawford has been voted as the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year for the third time.

Crawford, the 36-year-old who averaged 14.2 points per game for a Clippers team that went 53-29 despite being without Blake Griffin for 47 games, is the first player in NBA history to win the award three times. He also won the honor in 2010 and 2014.

Crawford came off the bench in 74 of his 79 appearances and averaged 14.2 points and 2.3 assists in 26.9 minutes in all games, helping the Clippers (53-29) post their fourth straight 50-win season.

Crawford amassed 51 first-place votes and 341 total points from a panel of 130 sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada. The Golden State Warriors’ Andre Iguodala finished second with 288 points (33 first-place votes), and the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Enes Kanter was third with 182 points (19 first-place votes).
