    Markkanen scored at least 20 points for a second straight game and for the fourth time in the past seven games. With Jarrett Allen (finger) out indefinitely, Markkanen figures to take on a bigger role in the offense, though it could be a collaborative effort from Cleveland's frontcourt.

  • Cavaliers' Lauri Markkanen: Leading scorer in victory

    Markkanen contributed 22 points (8-18 FG, 3-12 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds and one block across 38 minutes during Sunday's 104-96 victory over Toronto.

    Markkanen hadn't scored more than 12 points in any of his last three appearances while shooting just 33.3 percent from the floor during that time. However, he saw increased looks from the floor and led the Cavaliers on the scoreboard in the narrow win. Markkanen also hauled in a season-high 12 rebounds en route to his second double-double of the season. Although he continued to struggle with efficiency from beyond the arc Sunday, it was encouraging to see the fifth-year pro put together a well-rounded performance after a string of lackluster outings.

    Markkanen battled an ankle injury before the All-Star break and has struggled with his efficiency in three games since returning.

Markkanen is a viable source of threes and a capable scoring threat, but Monday serves as a reminder of his high volatility.
