Sixth Man Voting: Smith got Twice as Many First-Place Votes as Crawford

JR SmithNEW YORK — Well, you can’t exactly call it a landslide.

But it certainly was a more decisive vote than many might have anticipated.

J.R. Smith, who led all reserves in scoring, received 72 first-place votes to Crawford’s 31 in winning the NBA’s Sixth Man award Monday.

Jarrett Jack of Golden State received 14 first-place votes and finished third.

My vote went to Smith, who had seven 30-point games in which the Knicks went 5-2. Crawford scored 30 once — one of the deciding factors I used when casting my official NBA ballots, which you can review here.

Here are the vote totals from the NBA:

    Whoever gave Jordan Crawford their 1st place vote either thought they were voting for Jamal or is a Boston homer. Either way, voting privileges should be revoked.
