Jamal Crawford and Quentin Richardson return for a new stream of NBA HooperVision on NBA League Pass. The duo will give their unique perspectives on Friday’s game between the Los Angeles Clippers and Philadelphia 76ers (7:00 ET). The duo will be taking fans inside the life of an NBA player by sharing stories from their careers and providing in-depth analysis on all things basketball.
The Clippers (22-24) are coming off a 130-128 overtime loss to the Denver Nuggets. With Paul George remaining sidelined due to a right elbow injury, the Clippers have seen an uptick in production from several veterans. Reggie Jackson has been leading the charge pumping in 15.8 ppg in his last five contests. Marcus Morris Sr. has looked sharp after returning to the lineup, while Ivica Zubac chipped in 32 points in his last outing.
The 76ers (26-18) enter the matchup playing at a high level, winning 8 of their last 10 contests. Joel Embiid’s KIA MVP case has surged during this recent stretch. In his last ten games the All-Star center has averaged 32.8 ppg on 54.7% shooting from the field. Embiid is coming off a stellar 50-point performance in a 123-110 win over the Magic on Wednesday. Philadelphia will look to continue gaining ground in the tight Eastern Conference standings.

Richardson and Crawford were both selected in the 2000 Draft and combined to play in more than 2,100 NBA games.
Crawford, a guard who was picked No. 8 in the Draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers and traded to the Chicago Bulls, is tied with Lou Williams as the only players in NBA history to win the Kia Sixth Man of the Year Award in three different seasons. Crawford played for the Bulls, Knicks, Warriors, Atlanta Hawks, Portland Trail Blazers, LA Clippers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Phoenix Suns and Nets in his 20-year career.
At 39, and in his final regular-season game with Phoenix, Crawford dropped 51 points in a loss to the Dallas Mavericks. That performance made him the oldest NBA player to score 50+ points in a game, as well as the first player to score that many points off the bench in a single NBA game.
Richardson, a combo guard-forward who was picked No. 18 by the Clippers, played 13 seasons with stops in Phoenix, New York, Miami and Orlando after beginning his career in LA. He won the 2005 NBA 3-Point Contest and has gone on to a successful broadcast career, which includes co-hosting the popular “Knuckleheads” podcast.
