Need a reason for Toronto’s turnaround? Maybe it starts with coach Sam Mitchell’s intensity.
“We need some edge,” Mitchell said following his team’s loss to the last-place Celtics. “We need something. That’s what I told the guys, especially if they’re coming off the bench. You don’t have time to work your way into a game. If you’re coming off the bench and you’re dragging you’re not going to play … if you’ve got to ease your way into that, then you might as well come back and sit down.”
