Jordan Crawford has 21 points, none bigger than the pull-up fading jumper he hit over Gordon Hayward to force overtime on Monday night against the Jazz. The Wizards and Utah finished regulation in quite a wacky and sloppy manner tied at 85-85.
John Wall missed all eight of his shot attempts in the second half and did not score.
The Wizards appeared to be cruising to victory in the second half, but went on an extended scoring drought -- netting just one point from the 7:35 mark in the fourth quarter until that final Crawford bucket. The Jazz zone defense befuddled Washington and slowed down Wall significantly.
Once again, the Wizards are still on track to match the 1990-91 Kings, who are the only team to win just one road game in a season.That can all be erased if the Wizards can get back on track against the Kings in overtime.
