DeAndre Jordan believes Clippers guard Jamal Crawford should win the 6th Man of the Year award, and he broke out his singing voice on Monday to support his teammate.

After Crawford scored 21 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Clippers past the Nuggets, Jordan stole the spotlight during Crawford's postgame interview.

Crawford, the reigning 6th Man of the Year, is averaging 15.7 points this season, down nearly three points from last season. He also won the award in 2010 as a member of the Atlanta Hawks. He is one of four players who have won the award twice, joining Kevin McHale, Ricky Pierce and Detlef Schrempf.

It remains to be seen if Jordan's inspired performance will boost Crawford's candidacy this season. While he didn't quite match Klay Thompson's 37-point quarter, Crawford's big fourth quarter likely did more for his chances than Jordan's song.
