The 2018 NBA Summer League tournament may be over, but Collin Sexton is just getting started. The rookie was .... intense as the Cavs took on the favored Lakers Monday night.
Tied at 98 with 15 seconds to go …

Sexton scored 27 points while making plays in crunch time as Cleveland fell to the top-seeded Lakers 112-109 in double overtime.
This one tied it up late.

And this one came too late, but what a shot.

Not bad for a guy who supposedly doesn't have an outside shot.
Following the game, Dan Gilbert gave a shoutout to the entire team, particularly Sexton, who has people around the NBA starting to take notice.
Hell of a run by @CollinYoungBull and the the entire @Cavs Summer League squad. These guys repped the franchise and the city of Cleveland with character, heart and guts we plan to continue this Fall...
