Jordan Crawford hits ridiculous game-winning three for Wizards (VIDEO)

Jan 22, 2013, 2:40 AM EDT

Was there ever any doubt that was good?

Okay, there was a lot of doubt. But the shot found its way in and with that Jordan Crawford lifted the Wizards to a win over the Blazers on the road.

It was 95-95 with 3.6 seconds left when the play started. Crawford worked free, caught the ball, dribbled left and launched a step-back nearly 30-foot three over Wesley Mathews. And it finds nothing but the bottom of the night just as the buzzer sounds. Jordan had all his 13 of his points in the fourth quarter.

With the win the Wizards are 5-2 in their last seven games and they are no pushover anymore.

    Wiz would be battling for playoff positioning if Wall wasn’t hurt. Probably good for them though so they get high pick.

      They don’t high pick lol they should be in playoff hunt in weak east. Wall injury plus wrong coach has hurt them plus nene injured as usual always hurts

    @mick No… They wouldn’t.

      @themagicfanguy….Yes they would. I’m not a Wizards fan but I’ll give them that.

        How? The NBA is a long season. Teams get streaky. You can’t say that a team that won only 5 games without a player would all of a sudden fight for the playoffs when he returns.

    Can someone please tell me what makes Crawford shot so “ridiculous.” There was nothing exceptional about Crawford’s shot. Hitting shots like that to win games while not the norm, happens with a degree of regularity in the NBA. The degree of difficulty was minimal so there was nothing, in my humble opinion so “ridiculous” about that shot.

    @broncobeta Because the only thing you’re looking at is John Wall’s absence. I’m looking at Nene’s absence. Jordan Crawford’s absence and so on. This team finally gets to show what they look like when near full strength. Something they haven’t been since the season began. Yes teams get streaky. But I’m a fan of the game enough to know that a starting 5 that includes Nene, Wall and Beal can COMPETE for a playoff spot. That is what we’re talking about right?

    I am a Wiz fan. Go back and look at their schedule and see how many games they lost by 4 or less/ in OT. Now give me a rational argument why they wouldn’t be competing for a playoff spot if they had better health.
