Colin Sexton has been quietly having a solid 2nd half to the rookie campaign. About 18 and 3.5 assists.

Game slowing down for the young bull... another solid efficient outing with a lot of stuff not showing up in the box score as well

The Cavs are now 6-8 (.428) when Love plays, and in at least one of those other games (Brooklyn), the coach seemed intentionally to make decisions (e.g., benching Nwaba for the whole 4th quarter when he was tearing up the other team) to lose that game.

What this suggests to me is that the Cavs have much better personnel than their current record suggests...and that Love's injury this season might have been a blessing in disguise (enabling them to get a better lottery pick while resting their best player). Assuming they do well in this coming draft, and with the large amount of cap space available in 2020, the "rebuild" may end a lot sooner than expected.

I thought at the start of the season that the Cavs could be battling for a playoff spot if everyone was healthy, obviously there were a lot of time missed by guys like Love/TT etc and that definitely derailed any possibility of it happening, but the fact that the Cavs seem to win these games against some of the better teams in the league shows what they can be in the coming years.

Yeah, I mean they have the roster to compete for a 7th or 8th seed when healthy, but overall this season has gone exactly as it should have imo for overall improvement of the roster through the draft.
