Jamal Crawford has been quickly taking names with his deadly crossover. Wesley Matthews gets so confused that he just gives up with a wave of the hand. Jamal Crawford has been doing these things for years on players. He might be the most underrated ball handler in the league with devastating moves like this. Wesley Matthews never stood a chance.
As previously noted on Outside the Boxscore, when the Los Angeles Clippers play a basketball game, there will at least be one notable dunk from star forward Blake Griffin.

If you took a poll among fans as to who has the best crossover in the NBA, I’m sure Jamal Crawford would at the very least be right in the middle of the discussion.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Jamal Crawford was pretty sure he was going to be the hero for his new team on his old stomping grounds.
