Cavs assistant head coach Larry Drew took the team’s reins after Lue’s second-quarter exit, and remained at the head of the bench for the rest of the game. It was a grim one for the reeling Cavaliers, who blew a 21-point lead with a horrendous second half, scoring just nine points in the fourth quarter and falling to the Magic, 116-98.
