The final score doesn't indicate how much this team (and Jose Calderon) owned the Toronto Raptors. When Calderon was on the floor, the Cavs outscored the Raptors by 27 points.
Calderon was the much needed option for the team as James and Kevin Love was first and third in scoring with 27 and 18 respectively. But Calderon's 19 points came with being 7 of 11 from the field and 3 for 5 from downtown.
Tonight's victory against the Raptors was their second win head-to-head in two weeks. The Cavs are also 9-1 in the last 10 games as they look to secure the 3rd seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs with 4 regular season games remaining. Calderon's performance against Kyle Lowry was aided by Lowry's apparence in San Antonio the night before for the NCAA National Championship Game as a Villanova alum. Lowry only scored 5 points against Calderon.
Cavs will be back home this Thursday night against the Washington Wizards in a possible first round playoff preview. Our Complete Cavaliers Coverage will begin at 7pm with Cavs Now with Nick Camino and tipoff at 8pm on Newsradio WTAM 1100.
