For Osman, Wednesday was a dream come true, getting his first real taste of the NBA after abandoning everything he knew, everything that was comfortable for this this shot. “It was the first NBA game for me. Of course, it was really difficult on the court,” Osman said after the Cavs’ 109-93 loss against the Atlanta Hawks. “Playing together with (Jose) Calderon, Jeff Green, D-Rose and those players and I was really excited. Yes, we lost. But this was the first game and for me this was a big experience.”
“For me, first it was like shock,” Osman said. “But then when I continued to play I got used to it and felt better and better. It was OK for a first game. I think I was a little more excited, but it’s OK.” One of the first times he touched the ball, Osman committed an offensive foul. Moments later, he missed a wide-open 3-pointer at the first quarter buzzer. He didn’t score his first basket until late in the third quarter, a snazzy post move that ended with a layup. He finished the night with six points on 2-of-6 shooting to go with two assists, two rebounds, two turnovers and three fouls. Overall, there weren’t many positives. He even looked a little lost on the defensive end, an area that’s supposed to be one of his best.
