During Crabbe's 2018-19 campaign, he continued to build his reputation as a sharpshooting wingman. Crabbe knocked down at least one three-pointer in 40 of the 43 games in which he played, establishing a season high with seven treys against Dallas on Nov. 21 and again versus Oklahoma City on Dec. 5. Overall, the six-year veteran averaged 2.3 threes per game and shot 37.8 percent from behind the arc. For the fifth consecutive season, Crabbe's true-shooting percentage eclipsed the 50 percent mark, as he registered a 51.9 TS percentage in 2018-19. In arguably his finest performance of the season, the former second-round pick posted 14 points and knocked down 4-of-6 threes while grabbing a season-high 10 rebounds against the Pistons on Mar. 11. Crabbe was particularly effective as a starter, nailing 44.1 percent of his three-point attempts and averaging 11.2 points and 3.7 rebounds over 20 games in that role. After a strong start to December during which he averaged 14.8 points and 4.5 boards in six games, Crabbe was shut down for nearly two months with a sore knee. He returned shortly before the All-Star break and caught fire over a four-contest stretch in mid-February during which he averaged 18 points and 4.0 three-pointers per game while shooting 55.6 percent from the field. Crabbe went on to play 10 more games before a recurrence of the knee injury ended his season in early March.2017
Crabbe enjoyed his best NBA season in his first year with Brooklyn, emerging as a regular starter for the Nets following a trade from Portland. The 25-year-old started in 68 of the 75 games he appeared in, setting a new career high with 29.3 minutes per game. He also scored a career-best 13.2 points per game on a career-high 11.0 field-goal attempts per game. Crabbe finished second on the team to Spencer Dinwiddie in total field-goal attempts and third on the team in shots per game. The California product did plenty of his work from downtown, launching a career-high 7.1 three-pointers per game and converting on 37.8 percent of those shots. Crabbe also excelled at the free-throw line, where he made 85.2 percent of his attempts. The sharpshooter exploded for a season-high 41 points in a win over Chicago on Apr. 9. In that contest, Crabbe went 12-for-15 from the field -- including 8-for-11 from three-point range -- and drained all nine of his free-throw attempts. He had one other game with at least 30 points and a total of 16 outings with 20 or more points. Crabbe also set a career-high with 4.3 rebounds per game; he grabbed a season-high eight boards on six different occasions.2016
The 2016-17 season was Crabbe's fourth season in The Association. The 6-foot-5 wing appeared in 79 games (seven starts) for the Trail Blazers. He averaged a career-high 10.7 points, a career-high 2.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists over 28.5 minutes per game. Crabbe also experienced career highs in field goal percentage (.468) and three-point accuracy (.444). In fact, his 44.4 percent from behind the arc ranked second in the NBA among qualifying players and marked the best three-point field goal percentage in franchise history by a Trail Blazer with 100-plus three-pointers made. Crabbe also scored 20 or more points six times this season. On New Year's Day, Crabbe grabbed a career-high eight rebounds, plus scored 10 points, during a win at Minnesota. On Jan. 8, Crabbe scored a career-high 30 points, aided by five three-pointers, during a close loss to the Pistons. On April 6, the 6-foot-5 wing hit a career-best eight three-pointers leading to 25 points during a home win over the Timberwolves. A sore left foot forced Crabbe to miss the last four games of the regular season. He overcame that issue to appear in all four of Portland's playoff games, averaging 5.5 points and 3.0 rebounds, before the Trail Blazers were eliminated by Golden State.2015
Allen Crabbe became an established NBA contributor during his third season with the Portland Trail Blazers. For the 2015-16 season, Crabbe appeared in 81 games (eight starts), up from 51 contests last year. He also doubled his playing time from 13.4 minutes per game last season to 26 minutes per contest in 2015-16. The increased floor time led to career-high per game averages in almost every category, including points (10.3), rebounds (2.7), assists (1.2), made three-pointers (1.4) and steals (0.8). On Dec. 21, Crabbe scored a career-high 19 points, plus four rebounds, during a home loss to Atlanta. Five days later, Crabbe scored a new career-best 26 points, aided by four three-pointers, during a blowout win over the Cavaliers. Crabbe's biggest contribution to the Trail Blazers was from his outside shooting. The 6-foot-5 wing shot 45.9 percent from the field, 39.3 percent from behind the arc and 86.7 percent from the charity stripe. All three averages were a career high. Crabbe's 10.3 points per game were third on the team behind Damion Lillard and CJ McCollum. The Trail Blazers finished at 44-38 and defeated the Clippers in the first round of the playoffs. They faced Golden State in the second round and lost in five games. Crabbe appeared in all 11 playoff games for Portland and delivered 9.5 points and 1.4 made three-pointers per post-season contest.2014
Crabbe's game appearances and playing time increased considerably during the 2014-15 NBA season, his second in the Association. After appearing in only 15 NBA games for 6.7 minutes per contest as a rookie, Crabbe appeared in 51 games, with nine starts, at a clip of 13.4 minutes a game in 2014-15. A November injury to Nicholas Batum let Crabbe grab four straight early-season starts, over which he delivered 5.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.0 made three pointers over 23.0 minutes per game. On Nov. 30, Crabbe drained a career-best three three-pointers during a win over Minnesota. On Dec. 20, Crabbe dished a career-high four assists during a win at New Orleans. On Apr. 11, Crabbe scored a career-high 11 points, plus grabbed four rebounds, in a home loss to the Jazz. Portland finished at 51-31 and lost to Memphis in the first round of the playoffs. Crabbe played 15 minutes and scored seven points during the Game 1 loss. The 6-foot-5 wing then started Game 2 and posted three points , two rebounds, one assist, and one block in 23 minutes. Portland lost Game 2 and eventually lost to the series to Memphis in five games.2013
Crabbe was drafted with the first pick of the second round (31st overall) by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2013 NBA Draft. He was then traded on draft night to the Portland Trail Blazers for two future second-round picks. The rookie appeared in 15 games for Portland and six games for the D-League Idaho Stampede in the 2013-14 season. He made is NBA debut on Nov. 1 with a brief appearance during the second game of the season, a win at Denver. For the most part, the Trail Blazers stuck with a strict nine-player rotation, which made it hard for Crabbe to get playing time. Crabbe played briefly in five November games, two December contests, one January game and three February games. On Dec. 6, Crabbe scored a career-high eight points during a blowout win over the Jazz. Eight nights later, he posted seven points during another blowout win in Philadelphia. In March, Crabbe would play six games for the D-League Stampede. In 39 minutes per game, Crabbe posted 16.0 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.0 made three-pointers and 1.0 steals per D-League contest. Crabbe also made brief appearances in three NBA March games for Portland, including a 11-minute, 5-point effort on Mar. 22 versus Charlotte. Crabbe's biggest contribution came on the last game of the season, Apr. 16, versus the Clippers. Crabbe saw 29 minutes, scored four points, grabbed five rebounds and fouled out.
