Jae Crowder scored 27 points to go with eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and six 3-pointers in the Jazz's 107-99 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday night.
It seemed as if the Jazz were going to close out the series mid-way through the 3rd quarter and it would forever be known as the "Jae Crowder game." Instead, OKC woke up and climbed out of a hole to force a Game 6. Still, Crowder was huge off the bench, tallying a team-high 27 points and knocking down six triples. If Crowder is going to be a reliable shooter, it adds another dimension to Utah's offense that can make them dangerous in not only Friday's Game 6 but beyond that if the Jazz get the job done and advance.
