CLEVELAND -- The Phoenix Suns can serve as a test for Cleveland Cavaliers acting coach Larry Drew's theory.
See, after Cleveland clawed its way back from 15 points down to topple the Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Raptors on Wednesday behind 35 points and 17 assists from LeBron James, and on a night when five rotation players and coach Tyronn Lue were out, Drew said it was a win upon which the Cavs' season might turn.
"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."
