Crawford made the most of his 22 minutes, scoring 13 points on an efficient 5-of-8 shooting from the field, including 3-of-4 from the three-point line. He added one rebound, one steal and one assist and turned the ball over just once.
The Wizards are finally getting healthy and have been able to utilize Crawford as a scorer off the bench. His fresh legs and energy proved to be a difference-maker as he lifted the Wizards, who are finally at full strength, past the Blazers in a key road win. Nene and Martell Webster added 24 points apiece to lead the Wizards, but on this night, it would be Crawford who finished the job.
