Sexton finished with 20 points (8-16 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, and three assists in 34 minutes during Saturday's 99-98 loss to Chicago. Sexton managed an efficient 20 pointsSaturday, going 8-of-16 from the field in 34 minutes. He didn't offer a lot outside of the scoring and much of that was due to the Bulls lack of defense. George Hill (shoulder) is slated to miss a couple of weeks giving Sexton the keys to the offense. Upon Hill's return, Sexton could keep the starting spot but that remains to be seen. Sexton is worth an add in standard leagues if you can handle the lack of supporting stats.
Sexton will serve as Cleveland's starting point guard for the next two weeks while George Hill recovers from a shoulder sprain, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Sexton drew the start at the point Wednesday and finished with 15 points along with a pair of rebounds, an assist and block over 42 minutes of action. The Cavs currently have a plethora of injuries (Kevin Love, Sam Dekker and Hill), so expect Sexton to shoulder the load along with Jordan Clarkson at point guard.
Sexton scored 15 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt) while adding two rebounds, one assist and one block across 42 minutes in Wednesday's 95-86 loss to the Thunder. Sexton got the start and a season-high in minutes Wednesday night with usual starter George Hill (shoulder) sidelined. Although he had the extra minutes, he didn't do much more with the extra time, as the point and rebound marks were right in line with his usual stat lines when coming off the bench.
The Cavaliers are concerned that Sexton doesn't "know how to play," Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports. The Cavaliers careened to another blowout loss Saturday night, a game in which Sexton played 19 minutes off the bench and finished with just four points (and a minus-25) and two assists. While the 19-year-old has shown a few flashes, his career is off to a relatively disappointing start, and the Cavs' veterans have begun to express their concern with Sexton's defense and decision-making. Sexton is averaging 11.1 points, 2.2 assists and 2.1 turnovers on the year, but he's hitting just 22 percent of his three-point attempts, and he struggled mightily against an aging veteran in Tony Parker on Saturday. The poor shooting isn't overly surprising, but Sexton was billed as an elite perimeter defender coming out of Alabama, so his deficiencies on that end are a discouraging development. Still, the Cavs aren't likely to slash Sexton's minutes any time soon, as he remains one the organization's top long-term assets.
Sexton had 12 points (5-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 25 minutes during Thursday's 110-91 loss to the Nuggets. Sexton received more minutes than George Hill once again despite coming off the bench. He managed 12 points with very little else which appears to be the fantasy profile for Sexton. If his minutes can keep trending in the right direction, he could start project some influence in standard leagues for those in need of a scoring streaming option.
