NBA HooperVision: Quentin Richardson, Jamal Crawford on call for Knicks-Rockets

Jamal Crawford and Quentin Richardson are up for a new stream of #NBAHooperVision on NBA League Pass.

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 Thursday’s game between the New York Knicks and Houston Rockets at 8 p.m. ET., taking fans inside the life of an NBA player by sharing stories from their careers and providing in-depth analysis.

Crawford and Richardson were teammates on the Knicks from 2005-08, and Richardson played there until 2009, before briefly returning during the 2012-13 season.

The Rockets (9-19) have lost three of four, but are coming off of a surprising seven-game winning streak that caught the attention of many around the league. Houston defeated Chicago, Charlotte and Brooklyn during that stretch. They also turned heads with a road win in Atlanta on Monday.

The Knicks (12-16) are looking to regain the form that made them a surprise Eastern Conference contender last season. New York has lost four straight and currently sits in 12th in the East 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.
