Good news for Clippers fans (and probably not so much for the Blazers or Spurs). Jamal Crawford is coming back. The reigning Sixth Man of the Year was looking right in practice.

This is great, because as hard as Chris Paul and the starters have been going, they aren't going to make it out of the West without consistent support from the bench. Crawford was that consistent scorer. Losing him in March 2 to that right calf contusion is something like getting punched in the stomach at the tail end of a 5km race—it's not a great feeling. Clippers got their second wind.
