Super-sub Crawford leads Hawks past Timberwolves

MINNEAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Atlanta defeated Minnesota, 112-89 with 26 points off the bench from Jamal Crawford and double-digit scoring from the starting five. Atlanta has now won seven of their last eight and seven straight against Minnesota.

Atlanta bounced back from an overtime loss in Chicago on Saturday night. That loss snapped a six-game winning streak that included victories over Denver, Boston, and Dallas and has given Atlanta a franchise-best 20-7 start.

"We should have won in Chicago. We let that game slip away from us," Atlanta forward Josh Smith said. "So we should be 21-6, but it is still a great start. That's what is great about this team, whenever we lose we shrug it off and try to get back on to a winning streak."

Crawford leads the league in scoring among players that have yet to start a game with 16.1 points per game. And he has scored in double figures in 14 of his last 15 games.

"That's what we expect [Jamal] to do," Atlanta coach Mike Woodson said. "He's done it for us all year and tonight he made shots. [Mike] Bibby had it going too, so I was able to play them together. Both were making shots. It was a total team effort."

While Minnesota has only five players returning from last year, Atlanta has benefited from keeping a core of young solid players together.

"It's been huge," Woodson said. "We started with a bunch of babies: eighteen, nineteen, twenty-year-old kids. And they have grown. That core has been together for years. It makes a big difference."

The addition of Jamal Crawford has also really helped solidify that young core.

"The young guys work really hard, there's not too many of them, and we have a great group of veterans," Jamal Crawford said. "Everybody's playing well, at a high level and more than anything, we're playing together."

Atlanta built a twelve-point lead early in the first quarter, with substantial help from Minnesota who turned over the ball seven times in the first three-and-a-half minutes of the game. Atlanta led Minnesota at the half 54-41.

The bright spot for Minnesota in a otherwise dismal first half was the rebounding of Kevin Love. Kevin Love has recorded double-doubles in eight of his last 10 games, including each of the last five. In the first half tonight, he recorded 15 rebounds, including [a Minnesota record] eight on the offensive glass and finished with 15 points and 19 rebounds.

After trailing by as much as 17 points in the third quarter, Minnesota cut Atlanta's lead to eight before seeing the Hawks finish the quarter with a flurry and take a 81-69 lead into the final twelve minutes.

"We played solid from beginning to end," Woodson said. "Teams are going to make runs and they made a run in the third quarter, but we overcame it with our defense. Our defense was solid. We held this team to under 100 points and only 41 percent from the field. I'm pretty pleased with our defense."

Jamal Crawford's production off the bench have many people eying him as the leading candidate for the Sixth Man of the Year Award.

"I didn't start thinking about it, until everybody started talking about it," Crawford said. "Now I'd be lying if I said I didn't think about it. That would be great. If I got it that means that we are winning and doing well."

Minnesota was looking for the team's first back-to-back victory at home this season. They defeated the Sacramento Kings 112-96 on Friday night, with 20 points from Corey Brewer.

Al Jefferson led Minnesota in scoring with 17 points, and with 10 rebounds posted his fourteenth double-double of the season.
