Cleveland Cavaliers second-year point guard Collin Sexton crossed over Josh Richardson so bad that the Philadelphia 76ers wing fell to the floor. The Cavs rising star finished off the highlight play by knocking down the jumper.

Sexton came into Wednesday averaging 19.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists while shooting 45.8 percent from the field, 36.7 percent from beyond the arc and 85.3 percent from the free-throw line.
The Cavs are looking forward to seeing how good Sexton is going to be down the line. He’s made great steps in his second season despite the whole John Beilein disaster.
Cleveland’s young core is headlined by Collin Sexton, Darius Garland, Kevin Porter Jr., Cedi Osman, Larry Nance Jr. and Dante Exum. The Cavs reportedly believe in JB Bickerstaff’s ability to develop the young talent on the roster.
