After allowing a season-high 79 points in the first half and trailing the Toronto Raptors by 15 at intermission on Wednesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers stormed back to win 132-129. The game left acting head coach Larry Drew believing he witnessed a breakthrough performance. “I always say there is one game during the season that changes your team,” Drew said. “That game can be early, it can be midway, it can be late. There’s always one game that kind of changes your team, the mindset. And I really believe tonight’s game might have done that for us.”

Four times times during this interview, Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry laughed before the question was even finished. The mere mention of a possible career as a coach elicited one such response. “I couldn’t deal with nobody like me,” Lowry told CBS Sports. “That’s why I respect [coach Dwane Casey] so much: Because he’s dealing with guys that have different individual personalities and he’s able to coexist with everyone and make everyone love him. That’s why I believe he’s one of the best coaches I’ve ever had.”
