Cleveland Cavaliers: Collin Sexton has ‘no worries’ about 3-point shot despite December struggles

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- After being criticized for his shaky outside shot coming into the NBA, Collin Sexton proved doubters wrong in his debut season, setting a rookie franchise mark for 3-pointers while hitting 40.2% from deep -- the second-best mark among first-year players who attempted enough to qualify.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- New year, same late-game problems.

For the second time in two weeks, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Charlotte Hornets went down the wire. A thrilling finish again, only this time the outcome was flipped. Charlotte capped a fourth-quarter comeback with a 109-106 win on Thursday night, ending its six-game losing skid that began with a loss against the Cavs on Dec. 18.

“Very disappointing, that one,” Cavs head coach John Beilein said. “I would say I think we had it, we played well enough at times. I told the team when we look back at it, there’s going to be segments all throughout the game where we didn’t play very good defense, they got layups or they got dunks, they got something, or an open 3. That came back to haunt us.” - CLICK HERE to read full story.

And beyond.

With each passing game, Garland’s old form -- the silky shooting stroke, underrated passing, clever handle, advanced pick-and-roll game and deep range -- is starting to return. So is his confidence. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
