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 Oklahoma City Thunder and Brooklyn Nets (8:30 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 Thunder (13-27) are coming off a 122-118 loss to the Washington Wizards. Oklahoma City is getting solid production from its young backcourt as Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 22.6 ppg over his last seven games while rookie Josh Giddey is at 14.0 ppg, 9.2 rpg and 8.2 apg over his last five games.

The Nets (26-14) enter Thursday’s matchup fresh off a 138-112 victory over the East-leading Chicago Bulls. In that game, Kevin Durant finished with 27 points on 7-for-10 shooting while James Harden added 25 points and 16 assits. Brooklyn seeks back-to-back wins for the first time since it defeated the Lakers and Clippers on a West coast trip in late December.

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.
