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 Monday’s game between the New York Knicks and Utah Jazz (9 ET), taking fans inside the life of an NBA player by sharing stories from their careers and providing in-depth analysis on the matchup.
NBA HooperVision gives fans the authentic feel of watching a game with two NBA legends. Crawford and Richardson do everything from discussing players’ pregame outfits to breaking down detailed X’s and O’s during the live game. The stream usually includes a special guest, too. On Friday night the NBA HooperVision stream welcomed Seattle Sonics and NBA legend Shawn Kemp to the show. Tune in tonight to see what the guys have planned on NBA League Pass.
The Knicks (24-29) are looking to gain momentum on this west-coast trip after falling to the Lakers 122-115 in overtime Saturday. RJ Barrett shined in the loss, pumping in a career-high 36 points. The third-year small forward has been a bright spot for the Knicks amidst a tough portion of their schedule. Barrett is averaging 22 ppg in his last five outings. New York will look to get in the win column before heading out to Denver to play the Nuggets on Tuesday.
The Jazz (32-21) enter Monday’s matchup on a two-game win streak after defeating the Nets 125-102. Star point guard Donovan Mitchell returned to the lineup from injury and scored 27 points, while Bojan Bogdanovic added 19. Utah is still without All-Star center Rudy Gobert (left calf strain) but is hopeful he will return to the lineup this week. Despite the injuries, Utah has remained a top-four seed in the West.

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.
