Second-year player Collin Sexton lit up the scoreboard in Sunday’s game against the Knicks. “Young Bull” dropped a career 31 points shooting 10-16 from the field, and 5-8 from 3 in a blowout win 108-87 at Madison Square Garden.
The former Alabama Crimson Tide Point Guard is currently averaging almost 19 points a game, slightly up from his rookie season where he averaged 16 a game. The Cavs, clearly in a rebuilding stage are now 4-5 on the season.
“It’s amazing… I just started making shots early and my teammates found me and I just continued to be a pest on defense and we got out and ran,” Sexton told Fox Sports Cleveland in the post-game.
“We’re just playing together. We’re having fun. I feel like when we’re having fun, we’re at our best.”
