Sexton produced another high point total, though he did so at the expense of his overall shooting from the field. Over his previous four games, Sexton has averaged 22.5 points per game while draining 11 three-pointers on 44.0 percent from deep. If his offensive output continues to rise, Sexton could be a valuable fantasy asset down the home stretch of the season.
Sexton tallied 20 points (7-21 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), a rebound, three assists and a steal in 39 minutes Monday against New York.
Sexton poured in 20 points on the way to a 107-104 victory at home, but he failed to do much outside of his scoring contributions. The 20-year-old guard has found his groove in the scoring column of late, averaging 20.6 points across his previous five contests. He's also dishing out 3.2 assists over that brief stretch.
Sexton scored a team-high 27 points (10-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding four assists and three rebounds in 38 minutes during Friday's 119-106 loss to the Wizards.
The rookie continues to assume a leading role in a Cavs offense completely stripped of established scoring options, at least until Kevin Love is ready to take on a full workload again. Sexton will have his growing pains, but the 20-year-old seems poised to produce strong numbers over the final two months of the season.
Sexton totaled 27 points (11-24 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals across 42 minutes in Tuesday's 103-96 loss to the Celtics.
Sexton posted his second-highest scoring output of his career Tuesday night, working inside and out with the ball to drop a game-high 27 points. With Sexton working as the main ball handler, there is little that stands in the way of Sexton taking over games like he did here, especially on a depleted Cavs roster.
If not for his status as a lottery pick along with the Cavaliers' place near the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings, Sexton probably would have been removed from the starting five a while ago. The 20-year-old rookie hasn't seemed to make much progress in his development since being installed on the top unit Nov. 7, with his poor field-goal percentage and lack of counting stats chipping away at most of the luster of his 14.3 points-per-game average. Sexton retains more value in points leagues than eight- or nine-category rotisserie leagues but shouldn't be viewed as a must-start player in either format.
