Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) – Collin Sexton set the Cavaliers' rookie record for most three-pointers made on Friday night. Sexton moved past Kyrie Irving with his 76th three-pointer of the season.

The rookie finished with 27 points and six assists in the Cavs' 126-110 loss to the Heat. 

Sexton has been impressive over the past five weeks. He was averaging 17.9 points, three rebounds and three assists-per-game in his last 13 games going into Friday night's contest. The Cavs' rookie has taken a lot of criticism this season, but the return of Kevin Love has had a positive impact on his play. 

Sexton is fourth among rookies averaging just over 15 points-per-game. He's shooting 38 percent from beyond-the-arc and his 76-made threes ranks seventh among rookies. If his recent play is any indication, the 'Young Bull' is going to be a big part of the Cavs' future.
