“We might have to go to all 10-day contracts next year,” Wittman joked. “Some of our guys might not like to hear that. They’ve been great.”

But it was Jordan Crawford who put the finishing touch on the game by connecting on a 3-pointer with just over a minute to play, after missing his first four from beyond the arc. Crawford finished with 21 points.

“As long as players keep playing with confidence, we can do a lot of things,” Crawford said.

As Crawford hit the game’s final two shots, he was asked why a smile didn’t come across his face. He answered with a shrug.

“I don’t never really smile when I get buckets. I’ve been doing that since I popped out. [This is] nothing new to me.”
