Crawford leads Timberwolves past Jazz

(TSX / STATS) -- MINNEAPOLIS -- When the Minnesota Timberwolves overhauled their roster in the offseason, the spotlight was on the acquisition of star Jimmy Butler and starters Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson.

Backup guard Jamal Crawford could well prove to be nearly as vital, with his ability to hit big shots.

Crawford provided the closing punch on Friday night that made him so attractive as a free agent. He scored 17 points, all in the fourth quarter, in Minnesota's nail-biting 100-97 win over the Utah Jazz.
