Jae Crowder is perhaps best known as a player who is on Josh Smith’s list of ballers who he won’t respond to.
Also he can play good defense while trying to blend in with the court on offense. Usually. Tonight something got into him, a primal desire to score more points than he ever had in the NBA. Who isn’t consumed with trying to surpass their own achievements? I keep trying to break my personal Hot Pocket record, but I think I set the bar too high when I ate 33 in a single night.
Back to Jae. He had a pair of nice dunks to punctuate his career night, which is two more dunks than I can actually recall him performing. He’s made a bunch of threes before. I remember some of those. But dunks? Watching these highlights you would think this guy have it all.
