The recipient of a Carmelo Anthony elbow-to-the-face told the Daily News that it wasn’t an isolated incident and he had to warn the Knicks star. It also helped explain why the referees gave Anthony a Flagrant 1 for what looked like inadvertent contact in the first quarter of New York’s 97-86 loss to the Celtics. “Melo plays with his elbows,” Boston forward Jae Crowder said. “He pivots. He came and just raked me on my lip and it’s the second game in the row, and I didn’t know if it was starting to be a routine from him. I let him know it’s the second game in a row, ‘You got to watch that.’”
Boston forward Jae Crowder says Washington coach Randy Wittman used profanity toward him, leading to Crowder’s technical foul during the Celtics’ victory over the Wizards on Saturday night. Crowder made a layup with 3.9 seconds remaining to help Boston to a 119-117 victory. Earlier in the final minute, referee Tony Brothers whistled Crowder for a technical for arguing while standing in the blocks awaiting John Wall’s free throws.
Every NBA team would love to have a prototypical 3-and-D wing that can hit outside shots at a high rate, defend multiple positions, switch assignments and doesn’t need the ball to be successful – an important skill in the modern NBA, where ballhandling is often dominated by point guards. Every year some of these players are the most underappreciated role players, and this season Jae Crowder is the one you’d point to as being the perfect example. The Celtics did a great job with a five-year, $35 million deal that looks like it’s going to be a bargain, and the contract runs straight through the entire prime of Crowder’s career.
