Arrow Smith: As good as it gets for Jose

No, I donít remember Jose Calderon playing as well at both ends of the court in a game this year, for sure, and maybe not for a season or two.

That was a clinic.

And Iím not sure what was more impressive: The points, the assists, the rebounds or the way he defended Chris Paul.

You know, and I have hammered it home enough that youíd better, that defence is never about one guy but the job Jose did keeping Paul in front of him was as good as heís done in a very long time.

And letís go through the last four games, all against very, very good teams.

Paul: seven and five.

Jason Kidd: Six and seven.

Steve Nash: Seven and 11.

Derrick Rose: Thirty-two (19 in the fourth) and 10. And Toronto won.

I donít think you can say starting point guards have killed the Raptors as theyíve gone 2-2 against quality opponents in their last four.
