Jae Crowder netted 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting to go with six rebounds, three triples and a steal in Cleveland’s Christmas defeat at the hands of the Warriors.
This game started out pretty chippy, and Crowder is a player whose toughness allows him to thrive in that sort of environment. The matchup was right for him in this one as the Cavs prioritized defense and he made good on his 29 minutes today. While this line is more reminiscent of the top-75 player that fantasy owners had grown to adore in his Boston days, Crowder needs to string more of these together before receiving any endorsements as a standard league pickup.
