Match-Up of the Night: Parker vs. Calderon

Last year Jose Calderon was one of the more underrated players in the entire Association. I would argue the only larger All-Star snub than Calderon was Manu Ginobili. He had an excellent turnover rate, shot .519 from the field, and was pretty much automatic from the charity stripe. After successfully navigating a difficult situation with former teammate T.J. Ford, who would be traded to the Pacers for Jermaine O'Neal, Calderon permanently secured the starting job in Toronto.

Most Toronto fans would probably admit that Calderon has been a little underwhelming this year. At 10-16, the entire Raptors squad has been underwhelming but Calderon in particular has performed slightly beneath expectations. His turnover rate is up, his field goal percentage is down, and many Raptors fans are quietly missing T.J. Ford's ability to get into the lane. Most recently Calderon and the Raps are coming off a pretty mediocre performance against the Thunder, in which they gave OKC only its third victory of the season.

It's not often one would say a player has a chance to bounce back from a loss to OKC against the Spurs, but given the way Tony Parker has played recently, that very well may be the case. Parker shot a mere 3-17 from the floor against the Magic on Thursday night and proved incapable of slowing down a hot-handed Jameer Nelson. Some efficiency and aggression on the part of Parker would go a long way towards ending the Spurs 2-game skid.

I didn't get to see the game; two questions: 1) Did Kurt Thomas's old self show up? 2) Why so little George Hill?
