No More Drama for Crawford

When Jamal Crawford [1] faced the Boston Celtics [2] two weeks ago as a member of the New York Knicks [3], the game was filled with heated tension and hostility [4]. That wasn’t the case with the Golden State Warriors [5]. While Wednesday’s back-and-forth game was a battle, it was simply good basketball in his opinion.  Crawford could hardly hide his excitement for playing with his new team.

‘€œIt was a lot more fun because with the Knicks, for whatever reason, we always get into it with the Celtics,’€ Crawford said with a smile from ear-to-ear following the Warriors 119-111 loss. ‘€œBut here it’s just fun, we just play, it’s competitive. I thought our young guys came to play tonight. After playing kind of lackluster last night, all of us bounced back and had a chance to win against one of the best teams in the NBA.’€

Crawford can look forward to another match up against the Celtics when they come to town on December 26 as part of their four-game West Coast road trip.
