During frequent pickup games this summer, Crowder has been impressed with the defensive abilities of Chandler. “I’ve been playing pickup with Chandler for two weeks and he’s one of the best defensive guys I’ve ever played with,” Crowder said. “I love defense myself, and to play with another guy who loves defense as much as you do is something special. “When I play pickup games I try to play on his team as much as possible because I feel like it helps me get better. As a younger guy and a younger defender, it helps me, and I’m trying to learn from him because he’s back there calling shots.” Fort Worth Star-Telegram

He and the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook each got technical fouls late in the game when Crowder took offense to Westbrook’s bravado. “He threw the ball at me,” Crowder said. “I didn’t like that at all. It was disrespectful.” Crowder added that the game got overly physical, but that’s something the Mavericks have come to expect from games against the Thunder. “I’m not surprised it went that route because those guys talk a lot of smack, and it can get under your skin,” he said.

So inquiring minds want to know: how'd he do it? "You kick it up a notch when you work out," he said. "And you watch your diet. Me personally, I took out bread and I took out grease foods. I drink water. I don't drink any caffeine drinks. I stay away from all the sweet drinks and drink water as much as possible." And, of course, dietary luxuries had to go. Beer is one thing that packs on the calories. "I cut that out," he said. "Occasionally, I'll have one. But yeah, I cut that out." Dallas Morning News
