Cleveland Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton continued to prove why he is one of NBA's best young players this past week as he averaged 29 points, five rebounds and 4.5 assists in his last two games.
Last Friday, the former University of Alabama star dropped 28 points, grabbed seven boards and dished out two assists in a close 108-102 loss to the Charlotte Hornets.
However, last Wednesday, Sexton led Cleveland to a 121-105 victory over the Chicago Bulls with 30 points, seven assists, three rebounds and one steal.
On the year he is averaging 24.1 points each time out, which is good for 16th in the entire league. Those efforts have earned him the honor of BamaCentral Crimson Tide Pro Athlete of the Week. It is the eighth time he has won this year.
- Washington Nationals catcher Alex Avila went 2-for-3 at the plate with two doubles and a RBI in an 1-0 victory against the St. Louis Cardinals last Wednesday.
- Detroit Tigers pitcher Spencer Turnbull made his season debut on Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday and went five innings, recording the win, striking out six and only allowing two hits.
