Preseason or not, Isaac Okoro had a first NBA game to remember.

Okoro scored 16 points in the fourth quarter to spark a Cleveland comeback against Indiana, and then he hit the game-winning layup with 0.3 left to get the Cavaliers the win.

It’s a good sign for the Cavs.

Cleveland took Okoro — one of the best pure athletes in this year’s draft and a strong perimeter defender — with the No. 5 pick this past draft. Okoro used that athleticism to get to the rim, where he was 4-of-5 shooting. The concern with Okoro was his outside shot, but he was 2-4 on the night from three.

If his jump shot comes around, Okoro could be the best player out of this draft.

His debut should give Cleveland fans hope.
