Cavaliers see signs of growth in Collin Sexton after first battle with champion Warriors, Stephen Curry
Author: Chris Fedor
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Late in the fourth quarter, as the clock started ticking down, rookie Collin Sexton looked over at head coach Larry Drew for instructions. Sexton could've taken the final shot. He didn't. He dribbled out the game, the buzzer sounded and the Warriors walked off the court with an impressive 129-105 win.
It may seem small. But Drew considers that a sign of growth.
"In that situation, there was no need to take another shot. He had the awareness to turn and look at me see if I wanted him to shoot it. That shows growth," Drew said. "That's something we look for and we point it out to him when those types of things happen."
In his first matchup against the NBA champion Warriors, Sexton showed plenty of other glimpses. - CLICK HERE to read full story.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- New team. New year. Same result.
The Cleveland Cavaliers lost their eighth straight game against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night 129-105 -- a stretch that goes back to Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals.
The Warriors have turned a once-feisty rivalry into a lopsided joyride, seemingly toying with the Cavaliers at points in the second half and gesticulating at their expense.
The Cavs couldn’t keep up with the champs even when LeBron James was in town. Without him, forget it.
Prior to the game, players and coaches reminisced about four straight Finals matchups. They talked about their favorite moments. Those memories will live on for both teams and the NBA benefited greatly, but as Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said, rivalries don’t last forever. With James' departure, both sides seemed ready to put it in the past. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
