It was the look Clippers guard Jamal Crawford wanted, but it wasn't the result. Crawford's 19-foot jump shot over Nicolas Batum was a fraction long and bounced off the back rim, giving the Portland Trail Blazers a 101-100 victory over the Clippers on Saturday night. Crawford scored 16 of his 19 points in the second half, but he missed a scoop shot in the paint and the final jumper in the last 24 seconds. The shot over Batum came after Crawford grabbed an offensive rebound, got tied up and won the ensuing tip.
