Cleveland Cavaliers wing Cedi Osman is starting to make his mark more as of late, which has been nice to see. We’ll look at a few post-All-Star break goals for Osman here.

Cedi Osman has been decent thus far in the 2019-20 season in what has been his second year as a full-time starter at the 3 for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

I of course will say that Osman defensively has his hands full trying to guard starting caliber small forwards, but he’s at least gotten better off the ball. That’s mostly in relation to staying attached to his primary matchups and his feel as a rotator/stunter to cutters/post threats has improved.

Plus, I’d imagine playing with Andre Drummond behind him near the paint should help Osman some in terms of deterring drives.

On the offensive end, Cedi has blended in more so than taken a key on-ball role, which he had more of in 2018-19. In that role, though, Osman has been pretty darn efficient.

On the year, Osman has averaged 10.8 points per game on an effective field goal shooting clip of 54.2 percent, and he’s hit 38.2 percent of his three-point attempts, according to NBA.com. That’s been on 4.8 attempts per contest.

Additionally, Osman’s had 3.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.

That’s not the 4.7 rebounds per game Cedi averaged last year, but it’s understandable that Osman’s rebounding numbers are down with Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson being active most of this season.

Last season, those two combined to miss 99 games mostly due to reported toe surgery (in Love’s case) and a reported foot injury/soreness related to it (in Thompson’s case).

Alright, well lets get started with the first post-All-Star break goal for Osman, which I considered one goal, at least.
