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.
Sexton scored 21 points (7-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 40 minutes during Saturday's 132-108 loss to the Clippers.
He's ending his first NBA campaign on a very impressive note, and Sexton has scored at least 20 points in 11 of the last 12 games. Still only 20 years old, the guard is solidifying his spot as one of the key components in the franchise's rebuild.
Sexton totaled 24 points (10-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three assists and one rebound across 35 minutes in the Cavaliers' 116-110 loss to the Spurs on Thursday.
Sexton remained red-hot from the field in the loss, churning out his second straight 24-point effort in the process. The rookie has now shot 47.4 percent or better in six of the last seven games, a sample that includes five tallies of greater than 58.0 percent. Sexton isn't doing much else besides scoring, however, so his value is always a threat to take a dip any night his shot isn't at its best.
Sexton scored a game-high 24 points (9-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding three assists and two rebounds in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 116-106 loss to the Celtics.
He doesn't get the attention of the likes of Luka Doncic or Trae Young in this rookie class, but Sexton is finishing up his first NBA campaign in style, scoring at least 20 points in nine of the last 10 games. His contributions in other fantasy categories is lackluster at the moment, but the 20-year-old still has a bright future.
Sexton scored 20 points (9-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt) while adding four rebounds and an assist in 31 minutes during Friday's 1110-108 loss to the Clippers.
The rookie has now scored at least 20 points in eight straight games, averaging 25.5 points, 3.5 three-pointers, 3.0 assists and 2.5 boards over that stretch. The 20-year-old may be better suited for a two-guard role in the long run, but unless the Cavs add Ja Morant in the draft, their offense figures to be in Sexton's hands for the foreseeable future.
Sexton tallied 25 points (10-18 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists and two rebounds across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 107-102 win over the Bucks.
Sexton showed up to play against one of the better teams Wednesday night, dropping a team-high point total en route to the victory. Sexton has taken over as the predominant scorer on the Cavs offense, averaging 26.3 points per game over his last seven contests.
Sexton collected 27 points (10-16 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two steals and one assist across 33 minutes in Monday's 126-119 victory over the Pistons.
Sexton continues to shoot the ball extremely well over his last six games, averaging 26.5 points on just under 60 percent shooting over that span. As he continues to develop on a rebuilding roster, Sexton should continue to blossom as a lead scoring option for the Cavs.
Sexton provided 28 points (10-17 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four assists and three rebounds across 38 minutes in the Cavaliers' 121-116 loss to the Mavericks on Saturday.
Sexton stepped up with his fourth stellar shooting effort over the last five games to lead the Cavaliers in scoring for the night. The rookie has drained at least 55.0 percent of his attempts in each of those contests, a stretch during which he's also accomplished the same statistical feat from three-point range. Inconsistent accuracy has often served to cap Sexton's production this season, but his recent red-hot hand has led to the 2018 first-round pick scoring 23 points or more in five consecutive games.
Sexton finished Thursday's game against the Magic with 23 points (7-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 7-8 FT), four rebounds, three assists and a block over 39 minutes.
Sexton was Cleveland's leading contributor in the scoring department, although it wasn't enough to prevent an embarrassing loss on the road. The rookie point guard has been hot of late, scoring 23 or more points in each of his previous four matchups. Sexton is averaging 21.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 3.2 assists through the first seven games of March.
Sexton accounted for 26 points (11-20 FG, 4-7 3Pt), two rebounds and an assist in 35 minutes during Tuesday's loss to Philadelphia.
Sexton has been on an absolute tear of late, totaling 82 points over his last three outings and hitting 58.1 percent of his shots from the field in the process. While the rookie guard's been unable to consistently provide strong secondary production, he's improved his scoring ability throughout the year and has flashed the potential that made him a lottery pick last summer. In 67 games, Sexton's averaging 15.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.2 threes in 30.7 minutes.
Sexton produced 28 points (10-18 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds and four assists across 36 minutes in Monday's 126-101 win over the Raptors.
Sexton has now led the charge for the Cavs in each of their last two games, averaging 27.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists over that span. The most notable reason for his scoring uptick would be his increased efficiency, as he has shot 60 percent from the floor in his last two games, but just 40.8 percent on the season.
Sexton scored a game-high 27 points (11-17 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding six assists in 35 minutes during Friday's 126-110 loss to the Heat.
The performance wasn't that impressive from a real-life perspective -- Sexton committed seven turnovers and had a Cavs-worst minus-16 rating -- but it was the rookie's best scoring effort in exactly a month. Expect Sexton to continue seeing heavy usage to close out a forgettable campaign for the rebuilding squad.
Sexton supplied 12 points (4-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-6 FT), five assists, two blocks, and one rebound in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 113-107 loss to the Nets.
Sexton finished with a career high in blocks, recording his first rejection since Nov. 23. He had swatted just three shots prior this contest, so fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting Sexton to host block parties on a regular basis. Nevertheless, the 20-year-old rookie remains a decent option in leagues that value counting stats more than they reward efficiency, as he's likely to continue earning plenty of minutes across the last 17 games of 2018-19.
Sexton managed 17 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists and a steal across 29 minutes in the Cavaliers' win over the Magic on Sunday.
Sexton finished behind Jordan Clarkson for the team lead in scoring in Sunday's win, but the rookie from Alabama has been a relative disappointment for Cleveland this season. Considering the Cavaliers' dearth of talent and playmakers, it's been frustrating for fantasy owners to watch Sexton struggle to take over games and produce on a consistent basis.
Sexton scored a team-high 16 points (3-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 10-13 FT) while adding three rebounds in 35 minutes during Saturday's 129-93 loss to the Pistons.
The Cavs couldn't get anything going at either end of the court, and while Sexton salvaged his night at the free-throw line, it was still a disappointing performance from the rookie. He's now averaging 19.1 points, 3.4 boards, 3.0 assists and 2.2 three-pointers over his last 10 games, and Sexton figures to remain one of the focal points of the offense down the stretch.
Sexton supplied 20 points (8-16 FG, 4-6 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists, and two steals in 32 minutes during Saturday's 112-107 win over the Grizzlies.
Sexton was about as efficient as one can be without earning a single trip to the charity stripe, as he canned a career-high four treys while contributing in every category except blocks. Sexton has drained at least three threes in four of eight games here in February after doing so only four times through his first 52 appearances this season.
