Celtics’ Crawford Named Eastern Conference Player Of The Week

BOSTON (CBS) – After averaging 23.3 points over a three-game stretch, Celtics guard Jordan Crawford was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday.

He followed that up with a 22-point, eight assist effort in a 106-98 win over the Nuggets on Friday night, and hit a career-high six three-pointers on Sunday in Boston’s blowout win over the New York Knicks.
