Sexton supplied 28 points (10-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 35 minutes during Thursday's 117-109 overtime win against the Spurs.
Sexton scored at least 20 for the sixth time through 25 appearances this season. His assist average has dipped a bit, as has his three-point shooting percentage, but otherwise he has improved across most categories as a sophomore, albeit minimally. Still, Saturday's matchup versus a stingy Bucks defense may not be the best time to trust him in daily formats.
Sexton contributed 10 points (3-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two assists and one steal in a blowout loss to the 76ers on Saturday.
Posting career-highs in points, rebounds, steals and field-goal percentage going into this game, Sexton struggled with his shot against Philly's stifling defense. Due to the extremely lopsided score, head coach John Beilein opted to empty the bench, leaving Sexton to finish the game with 25 minutes. This ugly loss aside, Sexton has been trending in the right direction after his strong performance down the stretch of last season. Reports recently surfaced of the Cavaliers testing the trade market for Kevin Love again, as the team will likely give their young guys large roles, and try to get another high lottery pick to pair with their young backcourt tandem. Still just 20 years old, he and Darius Garland could see their minutes and roles grow as the season wears on.
Sexton amassed 22 points (8-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 127-94 loss to the Pistons.
Sexton played a team-high 33 minutes Tuesday, finishing with a strong performance despite the blowout. Any peripheral numbers are a bonus for Sexton who typically struggles outside of simply scoring the basketball. Sexton is fine to have on a 12-team roster, however, there is not a ton of upside at this point.
Sexton scored a team-high 20 points (8-14 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding seven rebounds and six assists in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 116-104 loss to the Magic.
The 2018 eighth overall pick hit for at least 20 points for the first time since Nov. 10 and the fourth time this season, although he's scored in double digits in all 18 games. Sexton's shift to the off guard spot this year hasn't had a noticeable impact on his production, but the 20-year-old also hasn't taken any kind of step forward yet from his solid rookie campaign.
Sexton had 14 points (4-12 FG, 0-3 3PT, 6-6 FT), five assists and two rebounds in 32 minutes during Friday's 143-101 loss at Dallas.
Sexton has never been recognized as a passing threat, and he has dished out four or more assists just twice this season. Despite the sudden passing outburst, Sexton's value going forward should remain almost exclusively tied to what he can do scoring the rock. He averages a career-high 17.7 points per game on 43.5 percent from the field and only 33.9 percent from three-point range.
Sexton had 19 points (8-16 FG, 1-4 3PT, 2-3 FT), two rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 124-100 loss at Miami.
Sexton's minutes have slightly reduced over the past week and hasn't topped the 30-minute mark in each of his last four games, although his production hasn't been altered by this minor change. He should remain as one of Cleveland's most important scoring threats Friday on the road against the Mavericks.
Sexton had 17 points (7-17 FG, 0-2 3PT, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 28 minutes during Sunday's 114-95 loss against the Sixers.
Sexton struggled from the field in this one, although that shouldn't nothing new considering he is making just 44.0 percent of his field-goal attempts while hitting 35.8 percent of his threes. Most of Sexton's value going forward will remain tied to his scoring, and that should be the case against Monday against the Knicks.
Sexton had 31 points (10-16 FG, 5-8 3PT, 6-8 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 30 minutes during Sunday's 108-87 win over the Knicks.
The second-year guard had the best scoring performance of his NBA career and did it at a very efficient rate. Sexton made 62.5 percent of his field goals, a season-best mark for him in an individual game. Considering Sexton has scored 20-plus points in three of his last five outings, he seems to be on the rise ahead of Tuesday's matchup on the road against the lowly Bulls.
Sexton supplied 21 points (6-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one block in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 119-113 loss to the Celtics.
Sexton has scored exactly 21 points in two of the last three games. Nevertheless, his field-goal percentage leaves a lot to be desired, as do his contributions across most of the other categories. Still, Sexton is earning a ton of minutes and his role seems awfully safe.
Sexton pitched in 21 points (9-21 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 37 minutes during Friday's 102-95 loss to the Pacers.
Sexton had finished with exactly 18 points in each of the first four games of 2019-20, as his scoring continues to be by far his most consistent area of production. With that being said, he's averaging only 2.0 assists and has more turnovers (11) than dimes (10) through five appearances.
The Cavaliers have exercised the third-year option on Sexton's rookie contract.
This comes as no surprise. Through three games this season, Sexton is averaging 17.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists across 30.3 minutes.
Sexton scored 18 points (8-15 FG, 2-5 3PT) to go along with three rebounds and one assist during Cleveland's 129-112 loss to Milwaukee on Monday.
Everybody knows Sexton can get buckets, but his main problem has been the efficiency -- he needed 15 shots to score 18 points in this one. While his shooting percentages remain poor, he topped the 50 percent mark from the field for the first time this season. He will try to build on this performance Wednesday against Chicago.
Sexton scored 16 points (5-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), grabbed two boards and dished two assists in Wednesday's 94-85 loss at Orlando.
Sexton led the Cavs in scoring, but did so by taking the most shots and connecting on only 33 percent from the field. There had been questions as to whether or not the sophomore would be benched in favor of newly drafted Darius Garland, or at the very least be asked to play alongside the rookie. Both played 30-plus minutes, making last season's sixth man, Jordan Clarkson, the odd man out Wednesday, as the 27-year-old played just 18 minutes. However, it's possible the roles could fluctuate throughout the season.
Sexton accumulated 20 points (7-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds, and two assists in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 118-95 loss to the Celtics.
Sexton paced the team in scoring and minutes, though his contributions in the other categories were lacking as per usual. Sexton can likely be expected to score a decent number of points on most nights but he's not a very good passer or defender at this stage of his career.
Sexton produced 24 points (6-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 9-10 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 26 minutes during Friday's 109-105 preseason loss to the Pistons.
Sexton came through for 24 points Friday, including an impressive 9-of-10 from the charity stripe. He has been talking up the fact he wants to be a 90 percent free-throw shooter this season and he was right on the money here. The lack of assists continues to put a dent in his fantasy value but there is really no place to go but up. Based on his scoring alone, Sexton is worth considering with a late pick as long as your expectations are not sky-high.
Sexton's role may be impacted by the Cavaliers selecting Darius Garland with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2019 Draft.
With Garland slipping to five, it seems the Cavaliers' front office wasn't going to let him pass by, despite having a positional conflict with Sexton. Sexton averaged 16.7 points on 14.7 shots across 31.8 minutes per game during the 2018-19 campaign, and he notably averaged 21.9 points through the last 20 games of year. It's unclear if he and Garland will play side-by-side or fight for minutes at point guard.
Sexton produced 18 points (8-17 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 assists and one rebound across 38 minutes in Tuesday's 124-97 loss to the Hornets.
Sexton was afforded 31.8 minutes per game as a rookie, which allowed him to really develop his play over the course of the year. His 16.7 scoring average is a solid starting point to build off of in his next year, where a likely high draft pick will assist their rebuilding roster.
Sexton scored 16 points (6-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and added four assists and a steal in 40 minutes Sunday against the Spurs.
As usual, Sexton failed to produce much outside of scoring, although he led the Cavaliers in points yet again. The rookie guards showcased his scoring talent all season and while his secondary production has yet to catch up, it appears good things await Sexton in the 2019-20 season. Sexton will look to top double-digits for the 22nd-straight game in Tuesday's season finale against Charlotte.
Sexton registered 27 points (10-21 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, a rebound and two steals over 32 minutes Friday against the Warriors.
Sexton put forth a valiant effort Friday night, and although he managed to keep the game closer than expected, it wasn't enough to secure the victory. The rookie point guard continues to pour in the points with two games remaining left in the regular season. He's averaging 22.4 ppg over his previous five matchups.
Sexton poured in 21 points (9-23 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added four rebounds and three assists across 39 minutes in the Cavaliers' 122-113 loss to the Suns on Monday.
Sexton spearheaded the team in scoring with Kevin Love (shoulder) out of action. Sexton extended his streak of 20-point games to four with Monday's performance, even as he generated his worst shooting percentage (39.1) since March 6. With the Cavaliers likely to be cautious with Love for what remains of the season, Sexton should be poised for robust usage along the lines of Monday's the rest of the way.
