Brooklyn Gets Apple of Its Eye: Allen Crabbe Is Finally A Net

Unlike most elite prolific shooters, Allen Crabbe did not generate more open looks for himself in Portland via off-ball movement. Often, Crabbe relied on the gravity of C.J. McCollum or Damian Lillard to create his space instead and much of his time in the half court was spent rather stationary in spots. Jeremy Lin has made his living on slashing to the rim and passing to open teammates when necessary so Crabbe should suit well next to him. New addition D’Angelo Russell also has the craft to help generate space for his teammates via subtle dribbling and passing angles.
