The Wizards will have a reunion with Crawford on Sunday at TD Garden, but when reporters in Boston asked him about playing his former team, Crawford responded on Saturday with a question of his own. “Who?” Crawford said, before adding, “I don’t recall playing for Washington.” Washington Post

Since Crawford was traded, Beal has missed 17 of the past 23 games and is done for the season with a stress injury right fibula. The Wizards (28-47) have been content with having two roster spots occupied by the seldom-used Jason Collins and the injured Leandro Barbosa, who never suited for the team. Grunfeld bluntly explained why he moved Crawford by stating, “Jordan did not fit into our current plans…or our future plans.” When asked he had something to prove to Washington, Crawford responded, “To who?” “It’s just another game,” Crawford said. “I want to come out and try to win the game.” Washington Post

Jordan Crawford will face his former team, the Washington Wizards, on Sunday at TD Garden. "Who?" Crawford asked before practice Saturday when the issue was broached. Washington, he was told. You'll be playing Washington. Your old team. "I don't recall playing for Washington," Crawford responded -- and he used this line twice. Boston Globe

Yet with his team struggling down the stretch, Scott elected not to use one of his three remaining timeouts after Pierce brought the Celtics within 92-91 with a 7-foot fadeaway with 32 seconds left. Instead, Livingston missed a 10-footer with 10.9 seconds left and Jordan Crawford got the rebound with 9.9 seconds left, paving the way for the game- winning play. Asked why he didn't take a timeout, Scott said: "I knew what they were going to do. They were going to switch everything anyway. It was going to be pretty much the same as what we ended up with. Shaun was going to have the ball, or Wayne was going to have the ball and try to make a play. I thought Shaun got a good look. Got it right in the paint, about a 10-footer. He just missed it." And the Cavs missed another chance. "We have to hold ourselves accountable," Ellington said. "We're all professionals here and should all be communicating with each other and helping each other on the defensive end of the floor.'" Cleveland Plain Dealer

Jordan Crawford has blended into the Celtics nicely since joining the team Feb. 21 after a trade with Washington. “He does have a pretty good role: be aggressive and shoot the ball,” said Rivers. “That’s a sweet role to have for anybody. But he’s doing the other things. He’s playing defense and he’s making the right passes.” Crawford’s averaging 5.6 points in 13.6 minutes since joining the team. “It’s important for the coach to let me play my game,” Crawford said. “I’m glad he shows faith in me.” Boston Globe

But head coach Doc Rivers stressed patience with Crawford, providing encouragement for the 24-year-old guard as he continues to adjust to his new Boston surroundings. "That’s fine by me," Rivers said of Crawford looking for his shot. "I want him to be aggressive. Again, I think Jordan, [observers are] looking for him to make a bad offensive play. Paul [Pierce] made one; Kevin [Garnett] made one. Offensive players are going to make a couple bad offensive plays. I thought he made far more good ones than that. I want him to stay aggressive. I thought that [first-quarter drive] could have been a foul, he just went into the trees and couldn’t get out. I don’t want to take away what he can do, that’s very important." ESPN.com
