The Cavs of an unprecedented Calderón continue in free fall

It was an emergency duel. On the one hand were the Hawks who showed up in Cleveland with an eight-game losing streak at the bottom of the Eastern classification. On the other, those hesitant Cavs with a very disappointing start to the season. And none of the Playoffs.

And Atlanta was better, 115-117, passing even more anxiety to some Cavaliers who do not know what is most worrying: LeBron is going to end the season or wander all year without options to the title.

Atlanta arrived with five casualties, but still was able to win for the first time since the opening game against Dallas. Your 2-8 is revealing of the bad season they are leading.

The Hawks controlled almost the entire game and when they did not, there was Schroeder to mitigate the reaction of the Cavs. The German, author of 28 points and 9 assists, was crucial in the third quarter with 11 points in a row in the middle of the local comeback.

In the end, the Cavs came to have serious options. In fact, three seconds before the end Channing Frye threw a triple to win the game and Dwyane Wade came to palmear to send the game to overtime. Neither of the two balls entered.

For the Cavs the night was terrifying. In the third quarter they lost Kevin Love, who also did not have a dazzling performance with four points and four rebounds in 19 minutes, who was transferred to a hospital with a very high fever.

But in reality, everything revolved around LeBron James who, after his display Friday with 57 points, signed 26 against the Hawks plus 13 assists and five rebounds in a game in which he did not throw well: 10 of 17 in field goals with 0 of 3 in triples.

The Cavs, who lose their fifth game in the last seven, are left with a mediocre 4-6 in the first 10 league games and away from the posts of Playoffs in the East

José Manuel Calderón was left without playing for the second consecutive game. He was, in fact, the only player in the Cavs squad that was not even a minute on the court.
