Jamal Crawford knows how to make a sitting-duck-wearing-unsharpened-rental-skates out of you.

Midway through the fourth quarter of a 105-100 loss against the Indiana Pacers Sunday, the wily Los Angeles Clippers guard crossed over Lance Stephenson in true Jamal Crawford fashion:

There's something both wonderfully simplistic and overly complicated about Crawford's on-court dance.

The move itself is elementary: show left, go right. But his execution is difficult. With a flick of the wrist, he shakes Stephenson while simultaneously leading him into a screen set by DeAndre Jordan, further accentuating the stumble.

Crawford missed the shot of course, but a discombobulated Stephenson fouled him behind the three-point line. Far from perfect, but undeniably effective.

Whatever works, right?
