Sexton had 18 points (7-17 FG, 2-6 3PT, 2-3 FT) in Monday's loss to Chicago.
Sexton continues to score at a decent rate -- he's reached double-digits in every game since Dec. 28 -- but efficiency has been an issue, and his season-long field goal percentage is creeping closer to 40 percent. Monday marked the seventh straight game in which Sexton failed to hit better than 50 percent of his attempts. He also failed to record an assist in 29 minutes and added only three rebounds and two steals.
Sexton turned in 10 points (4-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and a steal across 33 minutes in Saturday's 124-102 loss to the Nuggets.
Sexton's development is key to Cleveland's rebuilding effort, so the organization will give him every opportunity to succeed while assuming the risk and growing pains associated with a first-unit rookie point guard. Sexton's raw talent is apparent, but appears impatient often and doesn't let plays develop, which results in some turnovers and errant shots. The 20-year old is still a viable scoring option and has value in most seasonal formats.
The rookie put together his second-best shooting night since Dec. 12, which led to his highest point total in the seven contests he's played since the calendar flipped to 2019. Sexton's overall shooting continues to be a work in progress, but he's been an excellent source of three-point production in January, generating an impressive 47.8 percent success rate from behind the arc on an average of 3.3 attempts per game. While not yet much of a facilitator at this point in his career, the 2018 first-round pick is partly making up for his shortfall in assists with a solid average of 14.6 points across his first 44 games (34 starts).
Sexton managed 13 points (3-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three assists, a rebound and a steal in 29 minutes during Friday's loss to the Jazz.
The rookie guard hasn't shot above 50-percent from the field since December 12th, a streak of 11 games. While this isn't untypical for rookies, it's concerning for fantasy owners who may be unable to absorb Sexton's woeful shooting percentage. He's still providing decent complementary stats, but if Sexton's percentages are starting to hurt, he's an expendable asset in standard formats.
Sexton registered 12 points (5-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds and four assists across 30 minutes Wednesday against Miami.
Sexton led the team by logging 30 points, although he shot just 33.3 percent from the field in a 117-92 loss. He's averaging 12.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 4.4 assists over his preceding five contests, although he's sporting a 31.0 percent success rate from the field during that stretch. Sexton figures to pull out of his recent slump in the near future, given his respectable 42.5 percent field-goal percentage on the season (37 games).
