  • Should Jordan Crawford start at point guard for the Washington Wizards tonight against the New Orleans Hornets Pelicans? My thought: he shouldn't only because it's imperative to establish your sets in the first quarter, and Shaun Livingston does that better than Crawford. However, with the game on the line late, I would rather have Crawford so there can be two scorers in the backcourt. [Washington Examiner]
