Video: Joey Crawford’s blocking call dance is spectacular


Referee Joey Crawford was in full on “I want to be part of this game” mode on Tuesday night, injecting himself into the Pacers win over the Lakers with questionable calls and handing out technicals like candy on Halloween.

But this blocking call was the best — maybe the best blocking call ever in NBA history. This is classic. Watch it on a loop. Anytime today you get a little down just bring up Crawford’s blocking call dance video and you will smile.

Well, unless you’re Chris Duhon (who got called for the foul on David West). Or Mike D’Antoni. Or most Lakers fans. But the rest of you enjoy.

Anthony Bennett moves around, dunks on Lakers’ Upshaw (VIDEO)

If you believe there is a difference between being dunked on and being dunked around, this definitely falls in the latter category.

Still, it’s an impressive move by Toronto’s Anthony Bennett to make the move and dunk around Lakers’ big man Robert Upshaw during the Raptors’ 105-97 preseason win over the Lakers Thursday night.

Bennett only had four points, but Kyle Lowry had another impressive preseason outing with 25. He has looked sharp. Julius Randle had 17 for the Lakers on 7-of-10 shooting.

Report: Cavs sign Dionte Christmas

The Cavs are shorthanded in the backcourt right now, with Kyrie Irving still out and Iman Shumpert sidelined for up to three months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears reports that they’re bringing in former Temple guard Dionte Christmas, who played for the Suns in 2013-14:

In 31 games for the Suns two seasons ago, Christmas averaged 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per game. He probably won’t get very many minutes if he makes the Cavs’ final roster, but there’s a chance they’ll keep him around on a non-guaranteed deal until Irving and Shumpert are healthy, just to have another body in the backcourt.
