For the second time in a week, Doc Rivers talked about Jordan Crawford’s passing as if it were a revelation.
In addition to hitting two big baseline jumpers early in the fourth quarter of the Celtics’ 94-86 win over Golden State last night, the new Celtics guard also fed Jeff Green off the break for the last basket in a 6-0 run.
So someone asked Crawford if he was the pass-first type, and he started to laugh.

“That’s a good question,” he said.
But here’s another surprise: The shooting guard had five rebounds in just over 17 minutes. It didn’t take long for him to feel comfortable in his first game in the Garden as a home player.
“It felt good,” he said. “I was a little nervous. Once that crowd got loud, I thought about being on the other side of it on the away team.”
Likely to stay
Yesterday marked the last day of Terrence Williams’ first 10-day contract with the Celtics, and based on discussions between Danny Ainge and agent Aaron Goodwin, the 6-foot-6 swingman probably didn’t have to worry about a second.
Williams confirmed that there’s a good chance he’ll be with the Celtics for the rest of the season, based on negotiations for a contract that may also extend into next season.
