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.
I like Casey, but Calderon on Holiday was brutal. I agree with some posters with Ross or even McGuire, but Holiday was attacking Calderon with ease which lead to lay-ups or open shots for other teammates. Maybe he thought he can use the same scheme in Dallas with Barea or Kidd at the top of the key, but the Raps don't have a Tyson Chandler or Marion to erase the deficiences of other teammates. The loss can be blamed on the players for the non-execution on offense during crunch time, but the coach takes the majority of the blame on the defensive end. Aside from Lowry and the progression of Demar, BC should be fired for the team he has assembled. Keep the coach, he just needs more players who play both sides of the ball.
