Jae Crowder eclipsed the 20-point mark for the first time in the bubble on Tuesday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals vs. the Celtics, posting 22 points (7-of-11 FG) and five boards in the win.
Crowder has been vital for the Heat coming off the bench since being acquired from the Grizzlies in early February. His importance has only grown as their time in Orlando has worn on and he hit five 3-pointers (5-of-9 3PT) on Tuesday. Crowder also had two blocks, one steal and one assist in 39 minutes of floor time against his former team. The Heat will take a 1-0 series lead into Thursday's Game 2.
