Collin Sexton fakes out Warriors to hit fastbreak triple
The Cleveland Cavaliers are hosting the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, but their game this time isn’t as exciting as it was in previous years. That was until Collin Sexton had something to say about it.
The two teams are known for the fierce rivalry that they had before and faced off against each other in 22 games in the NBA Finals. Their regular-season encounters were also as good as they had some classic moments.
But now things have changed, the Cavaliers are no longer with their best player ever, LeBron James, and they aren’t that competitive anymore.
However, a new face in the franchise has been making a splash recently. He’s none other than rookie guard Collin Sexton.
In a video shared by Fox Sports Ohio, Sexton finished a transition play with a three-pointer.

What is more amazing is that he was able to fool his defender Andre Iguodala. Sexton appeared as if he was going to pass the ball, and the 34-year-old swingman took the bait. Then an open Sexton launched a trey that found its mark to give the Cavaliers a 9-2 lead. It was early in the game, but Collin Sexton seemingly launched a firework to ignite his team’s offense.
The rookie is averaging 14.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists through 23 games this season.
