Advice: The 40 minutes and six dimes are both new season-highs for Sexton, who also matched his season-high in threes and steals. The rookie continues to thrive, scoring 20+ in three straight games. The return of Matthew Dellavedova should have minimal impact on Sexton's development.

Collin Sexton finished Friday's game with 23 points, two assists and one rebound, making 9-of-16 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws in a lopsided home loss.
Advice: Sexton has scored at least 20 points in seven games this season, trailing Luka Doncic's rookie-leading 11 games with 20+ points. He came in shooting a fantastic 46.2% from deep and suggested recently that he "just [has] to shoot more of them," so that's something to keep an eye on -- he missed his two attempts tonight. Cleveland jettisoned George Hill in a trade on Friday and brought back Matthew Dellavedova, who shouldn't be a threat to Sexton, so his arrow continues to point straight up.
Collin Sexton hinted that he'll start attempting more 3-pointers after knocking down three on Wednesday.
Advice: "I’m comfortable shooting it," Sexton said. "Shooting at a pretty good percentage. Just have to shoot more of them." The Cavs currently rank last in 3-point attempts, but Larry Drew is encouraging his team to shoot more. Sexton has been doing a nice job in the scoring department this season, but he's not bringing much else to the box score, so consistently adding a 3-point shot can only help his value.

Collin Sexton held his own vs. the Warriors on Wednesday with 21 points, three assists, three 3-pointers, two rebounds and one steal.
Advice: The rookie made 7-of-14 shots and was 4-of-5 from the line, with a perfect 3-of-3 mark from downtown. He's a combined 5-of-8 on triples over the past five game, after shooting 48.1% from distance in November, so hopefully his attempts will trend up -- he hasn't taken more than three in a game all season. The No. 8 draft pick is an optimistic outlier in an increasingly hopeless season for the Cavs.
