No. 1: Catch-and-shoot three-point percentage

When you have a system like the Cavs do and run two point guards as your two starting guards, it can be a bit tough at times. Who is going to take the ball up? Who is going to be your number one playmaker and create shots for other guys?

Overall, Darius Garland has seemingly taken over that role for the Cavs as Sexton has been getting better and better at understanding the game and reading the defense. Whether it be off of Garland’s dimes or not, Sexton is shooting 42.1 percent on catch-and-shoot three pointers, as documented by’s shot tracking data.

I believe there are two takeaways from this number. One of those takeaways? The obvious; he is improving in all aspects of shooting.

The other takeaway? He is a team-first guy and is willing to let Garland run point and create open shots for him.

One thing’s for sure: takeaway number two is not easy for Sexton, let alone any guard who was the guy running the floor the vast majority of the previous season.

Many people have always described Sexton as a team-first guy, in terms of his tireless work ethic, and someone who just wants to win. Even with that being the case, this is just the icing on the cake when it comes to clearing up any confusion on that topic.

Point guards are supposed to create their own shots, right? For Sexton, he has embraced the two guard role very well and has become a reliable catch-and-shoot player for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

These numbers show many different things, but seeing that he has grown as a player when it comes to off-ball situations, which includes his cutting, is huge and is just another trait he has added to his arsenal.
