Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Jamal Crawford will be named the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year on Tuesday for a record third time, according to reports.
Crawford, who will be a free agent this summer, also won the award in 2010 and 2014.

Crawford averaged 14.2 points per game this season for the Clippers, who had to weather a long stretch without star forward Blake Griffin. He also shot 90 percent on his free throws.
With Griffin out, Crawford picked up even more of the offensive slack and was the team's third-leading scorer (15.6 PPG) during the three-month stretch, according to USA Today. The Clippers managed to go 26-13 without Griffin and lock down home-court advantage against the Portland Trail Blazers, whom they lead 1-0 in their first-round series.
