His defense was much better than other games against Rose. I said it was "decent", not excellent. Calderon can't prevent Rose from getting to the paint, but he can make it difficult enough to give a chance to the help defence.

I take that 7-19 as a good thing because the defense from Chicago (Gibson, Noah...) was very hard. He found different ways to score even so. After watching a game like this you can't negate that he is a versatile scorer.

Funny how you forget to always mention them as being important.
Most of those 8 buckets were assists from Calderon, and the rest were put-backs. Nice job, but I wouldn't call it a key player.
I have to give credit to DeMar. He is improving quickly. He is an athletic slasher that can score through contact. He is still limited though and in the fourth quarter, when the defense is harder and the lanes close, he finds it difficult to score. Then you see that a player like Barbosa is still at another level.

Sorry, as much as you can hate this, the Raptors rely on International players. You'd better assume this, because it is the future of this team. At least International players re-sign for the Raptors at the right price.
