The Clippers have played 9 games without MVP candidate Chris Paul who will miss his 10th tonight. After suffering a broken nose in the loss to the Raptors Friday night they now be forced to play without their second leading scorer and 6th man candidate, Jamal Crawford against a shorthanded Celtics team.
According to the Los Angeles Times:
The Clippers’ Jamal Crawford suffered a broken nose in the fourth quarter of Friday night’s game against the Toronto Raptors and has been listed as a game-time decision for Sunday’s game against the Boston Celtics.
Crawford said that he was hit with Kyle Lowry’s elbow and was bleeding after the game. Crawford got an MRI on Friday night after the game and a CT Scan on Saturday that revealed the fracture.
The Clippers were trying to find a mask for Crawford to wear in the game against the Celtics.
