Calderon attributed his excellent performance in the first half to his teammate LeBron James: "I think they are very careful about marking LeBron, because he played great in the last time, so I just tried to play.

Calderon won two unfinished three-point chances in the game twice in a row. He hit the first but missed the second. "I hit the first ball and I'm left in the second chance.

He is not quick and will not do a lot of eye-catching things on the court, but he will Doing a lot of things is a trivial thing that many big people admire.
