The Stat Line of the Night – 12/09/09 – Jamal Crawford
The Atlanta Hawks have a new version of “The Microwave” and last night it burned the Bulls badly. Jamal Crawford is a former Bulls first-round pick that received a lot of criticism in Chicago. So he must have really enjoyed lighting up his old team.
Crawford is the sixth-man for the Hawks, but last night he was the star. He scored a season-high 29 points as the Hawks smoked the Bulls 118-83 at Philips Arena in Atlanta. The 35-point margin was the largest of the season for a Hawks win.
Crawford got it working early and often. With his 29 points he was 10-16 shooting, with 4-6 from behind the arc. He also nailed all 5 of his free throws and added 4 assists and a steal. He scored five points in a row to start a 15-4 run that opened up a big Atlanta lead going into halftime. There was no let up as the teams came back out for the third quarter. Atlanta outscored the Bulls 31-15 and the blowout was in place.
So for his season-high 29 against his former team, Jamal Crawford has The Stat Line of the Night for 12/09/09.
