Spanish Flavor in Cleveland
Lebron James had 18 points, Jae Crowder 18 points, Kevin Love 19 points, Jeff Green 11 points Channing Frye 10 points and Jose Calderon got 14 points. That's 6 players in double digits with only one player in the roster unable to score.
In the very first game when the Cavaliers fully utilized its third-stringer point guard, the Cavs went on to demolish Detroit Pistons with the score of 116- 88. The Cavs is now on a five-game winning streak and it looks like the absence of their two primary guards may have no bearing to their success.
Jose Calderon who shot 4/5 with 2/2 from beyond the arc was as efficient as he can be and the rest of the team followed as this became one of the few moments that the Cavaliers showed balance in scoring. Isaiah Thomas and Derrick Rose maybe a lot better than Jose Calderon but are they the right fit for the power-packed roster of Cleveland?
It is only the first game of Jose Calderon and we see an opportunity for the veteran Spaniard to make an appeal and become a regular part of the rotation.
With the win, Cleveland jumped up the western conference standing at 4 just behind Boston, Toronto, and Detroit.
