Cleveland Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton scored 21 points in Wednesday's 94-105 loss to the Orlando Magic, setting a franchise record with eight consecutive games of 20 or more points to open a season. The team announced Sexton's achievement on Twitter.
Sexton breaks the previous franchise record of seven consecutive games, set by LeBron James in the 2004-05 season. The young guard has a season high of 32 points scored from a Dec. 26 win over the Detroit Pistons. He is emerging as one of the premier scoring guards in the Eastern Conference, and has been the offensive engine for the 4-4 Cavaliers.
