Collin Sexton totaled 25 points (9-13 FG, 0-2 3PT, 7-7 FT), four rebounds, and five assists in the Trail Blazers’ 118-113 loss to the Jazz.
Sexton scored 25.0 points in the Jazz’s win over the Trail Blazers, putting together his most robust performance this season as he also tagged on four rebounds and five assists. It has been a long road, but he is starting to see the results of his efforts, as he saw 30.0 minutes on the floor for the first time this season. This bump in playtime is encouraging, especially with him coming off the bench, as it could indicate that he is on the verge of securing a meaningful and substantial role in the rotation that will allow him to demonstrate the offensive upside we experienced during his time in Cleveland. Between his consistency and teammate Keyonte George’s promise, the team seems to have the workings of a solid core that can be consistent and productive enough to help the team effectively begin the next chapter of the franchise. Sexton’s production will remain in flux as the team continues its shift, but it should remain high enough to make him a viable streaming option with roster potential in most season-long leagues. His price has seen modest, albeit consistent growth in daily formats, which could detract from his appeal; however, he has a high enough floor and upside to warrant some consideration. Sexton has a usage rate of 24.6 percent, a plus-minus of -1.5, and averages 20.7 minutes, 12.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.2 blocks per game while shooting 45.2 percent from the floor and 33.8 percent from beyond the arc.
