CLEVELAND-Collin Sexton and the Cleveland Cavaliers managed to do the unthinkable in their 116-101 against the Washington Wizards; they held John Wall to just one point and no field goals.

Collin Sexton who guarded Wall led all scorers with 29 points in 40 minutes of game action. Tristan Thompson led everyone in minutes (42) and rebounds (19) while also putting up 23 points. 

The Cavs outscored the Wizards 31 to 4 between the first and second quarters and the Cavs never looked back. Rodney Hood did not play due to injury and Coach Larry Drew pulled Jordan Clarkson in the third quarter due to back issues. But other guys like Larry Nance Jr, Cedi Osman and Alec Burks picked up the efforts. Even Jalen Jones was perfect from downtown (4/4).

Cavs will hit the road against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night where new Cavaliers player Matthew Dellavedova is expect to officially begin his second run with Cleveland and it will be against his former team. They play again at The Q this Friday. 

Wizards will travel to Indianapolis to face the Indiana Pacers this Monday night.
