Jamal Crawford with half court buzzer-beater that matters (VIDEO)

Nov 12, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

Usually we bring you the video of these half-court buzzer beaters just because they are fun shots to watch, they rarely have a big impact on the game itself.

But this one from the Clippers’ Jamal Crawford at the end of the third quarter did.

Crawford’s shot took a 2 point lead and jacked it up to 5. Fast forward to the end of the game and the Clippers won by just two (and got lucky at that as both Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Love missed point blank shots off offensive rebounds to tie the game and send it to OT). The difference ended up being this shot.

    Got lucky? Paaaleeese, the Wolves got lucky we let them hang around by keeping the 2nd unit in for too long. Should have been a 16-18 win easily. I understand Doc is trying to develop the 2nd unit early in the season. Plain and simple reason the game was that close? 2nd unit gave up far too many offensive boards period. Cut those offensive boards in half and there is your 16-18 win. Clippers got lucky, no you have it backwards. Wolves suffered their 6th straight loss to the Clippers and are the lucky ones as they should have been blown out. It’s a work in progress that will only get better for the Clippers.

      Are you serious? As a diehard Clippers fan, I thought they played a pathetic game. The T-Wolves have zero depth on their bench and yet at the end of the day it was a 2 point game, which by the way would most likely have resulted in a loss had it gone to OT. I love the Clippers, but they NEED to defend better in the paint (they gave up 4 consecutive offensive rebounds and blew an 11 point lead in a minute). In addition, they have to develop some perimeter defense (11 of 29 3 pointers allowed, 4 of which were by KLove), Blake needs to work on a reliable midrange jumper, and DJ needs to learn to shoot free throws. If not, they’re facing yet another first round exit.

    I think Crawford has the best handles in the league.

    @jerdogthompson, were we watching the same game!!?? Clippers were the obvious lucky ones due to the fact the wolves bench did basically nothing and still were in it at the end. All the bs miss calls by the refs…..please! The refs cater to Paul and Griffin! Plus it looked to me Martin was fowled the last shot….no call! Chris Paul clearly slaps Brewer in the head and oh wow, no call! Clippers had the calls all game so it seems they were the lucky ones!

    @mimaiheatdynasty, I would have to agree! He is a great player! I would say sixth man of the year for sure!

    Paul did break Brewers ankles though! Damn that kids got sick moves!

      He had a little help from Blake Griffin on that. Ankle breaker, my ass.

    clippers crack me up. They are always whining and they get ALL of the calls…

    Blake STAYS traveling… lol their announcers are ADORABLE too… when they were talking about the 2 best power forwards in the game (K Love / Griffin) … please. Blake is garbage… and I’m sorry bro you’re 6’8 or whatever cut up like that… ACT LIKE IT… I don’t like soft dudes, can’t even go play any pick up basketball these days because dudes think it’s the NBA and are on their griffin, crying and whining about everything

    @luvmnsports

    Yes CP3 clearly smacked Brewer in the head……….AFTER he grabbed the ball. Just his way of saying thank you :)

    It’s a mans game.
