Collin Sexton continued to dazzle for the Cleveland Cavaliers this past week in two appearances, scoring 29 and 27 points, respectively, against the Toronto Raptors and Oklahoma City Thunder.

On Saturday versus Toronto, Sexton poured in a team-high 29 points on 10-of-20 shooting from the field and 8-of-9 shooting from the charity stripe. He also added five assists in the 135-115 loss. 

The former University of Alabama guard's 27 points, four assists and three rebounds against Oklahoma City propelled Cleveland to a 129-102 victory last Thursday. 

His efforts have earned him the BamaCentral Crimson Tide Pro Athlete of the Week. It is the eight time he has taken home the honor this season.
