'Motivation': Suns forward Jae Crowder addresses negative chants from Pelicans' fans entering Game 6


Jae Crowder should expect the New Orleans Pelicans fans to chant his name even louder for Thursday night's Game 6 — and not in a good way. During Sunday's Game 4 loss at Smoothie King Center, a very large percentage of the sellout crowd of 18,962 repeatedly shouted ''F Jae Crowder'' (though using the full four-letter word). Crowder said the chants serve as "motivation" for him. "It's tough to block out 20,000 people, but you let it fuel you," Crowder said after Wednesday's practice. "It's motivation. Obviously, you're on the road. You know what you're coming into, but I know who to lean on, and that's my teammates. Whenever things get hard, we talk about leaning on one another and being there for one another and I think when you go on the road and you go into a hostile environment, you try to lean on those guys, but you use all that stuff as motivation, and give you more purpose to play the game with the team, with the crowd into it.
