LOS ANGELES (AP) — Clippers guard Jamal Crawford will be named the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year for the second time in his career, a league official with knowledge of the award told The Associated Press.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the league hasn’t announced the award.

Crawford was the Clippers’ third-leading scorer and the NBA’s top-scoring reserve with 18.6 points per game.

While starting just 24 of his 69 games this season, the veteran guard had his highest scoring average since the 2009-10 season with Atlanta, where he won his first Sixth Man award.

Crawford set a franchise record with 161 3-pointers this season and finished ninth in the NBA by making 86.6 percent of his free throws.
