No way in hell should Calderon be averaging 38mpg. Granted those mpg are skewed due to the triple OT game but he's easily averaging 35mpg which is stil far too much. Now with Lowry back i would hope Calderon is going to go back to his 20-23mpg.
At the same time, we have Ross sitting on the bench and his footspeed is a lot better than Calderon's. Why not send him out there and see what he can do? Or bring in Ed Davis and JV, run every play through the post and force Philly to double team us? Casey basically let us get eaten alive as Calderon was killed over and over. There were twofold errors. The first was having Calderon out there at all and the second was not having JV out there to provide protection at the basket.
