Sexton finished with 26 points (12-16 FG, 2-2 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one steal in 36 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Bulls. While he may not have taken a single three-point attempt, Sexton came out hot in this one, scoring a game-high 26 points on an impressive 75 percent shooting. Over the last two months, Sexton has played at a top-60 level, producing per-game stats of 23.8 points, 3.9 assists, 2.3 triples and 1.0 steals, while shooting 49.0 percent from the field, and 86.4 percent from the line in that span prior to this gem. Both Darius Garland (groin) and Kevin Porter (concussion) have been sidelined over the last few games, giving Sexton some extra on-court opportunity, seeing his usage rate jump from 26.7 on the season to 32.0 over his previous three outings.
Sexton went for 26 points (8-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 9-11 FT) to go with four assists, one rebound and one steal across 39 minutes Sunday in a 132-129 overtime win over the Spurs. Sexton's 11 free-throw attempts matched his season high, with the most crucial of his nine makes coming with three seconds remaining in regulation to briefly give the Cavs a two-point lead. The second-year guard has been on a nice offensive heater of late, pouring in 25 or more points in five of his last six outings while shooting 54 percent from the field and 45 percent from 3-point range. As per usual, Sexton's numbers in the non-scoring categories have been somewhat lacking, so he'll continue to offer better fantasy utility in points leagues than rotisserie formats.
Sexton amassed 41 points (17-30 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six assists, three rebounds and one steal in 44 minutes in Wednesday's 112-106 loss to the Celtics. With Andre Drummond (calf), Tristan Thompson (knee) and Darius Garland (groin) all inactive, Sexton posted a new career high in the loss to the Celtics. Rookie Kevin Porter (head) was also forced to leave this game early, pushing Sexton to a season-high 44 minutes of work and a new career-high 30 shots from the field. It is unclear if any of these injured players will be available for Saturday's matchup versus the Nuggets, but if either Garland or Porter are forced to sit, expect a heavy dose of Sexton once again.
Sexton scored a career-high 32 points (11-17 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 6-8 FT) while adding five rebounds, three assists and three steals in 39 minutes during Monday's 126-113 loss to the Jazz. With the Cleveland roster effectively down to seven rotation players due to multiple injuries, Sexton stepped up and did his best to keep his squad in the game. The second-year guard has been remarkably consistent for the Cavs, scoring in double digits in 32 straight games. Since the beginning of February he's averaging an impressive 22.8 points, 4.0 assists, 2.7 threes, 2.5 boards and 1.1 steals.
Sexton notched 16 points (7-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists and three rebounds in 37 minutes during Saturday's 113-104 loss to the Pacers. Most of Sexton's value has been tied to what he can do scoring the rock, but he has improved on his versatility over the last few weeks and has made strides as a playmaker of late. He has averaged 4.1 assists per game in 11 February contests to go along with 21.9 points while shooting an impressive 48.3 percent from three-point range.
