    In 6 games for the Cavaliers, dante is shooting the ball at 63%fg and 58% 3pts too.
    Dante is probably the best player in the Cavaliers right now.

    all the things you've been ******** on Donovan about, they are actually real facts on the cavs backcourt Garland and Sexton. some teams would've traded them by now since it's become pretty clear that those two have no star potential.

    Fine. One more screen shot. Two games in a row where Exum is turning over the ball too much and getting over 30 minutes

    Would like to point out that both Mitchell and Hayward and Hood were asked to stand in the corner early in their careers, the only difference is they played with more ability and confidence. -Exum really struggles when defenders would pressure him. His ball skills were a weakness.

    Hampered his ability to do more than sit in the corner

    Dante’s struggles in Utah weren’t due to Quinn. He had bright flashes of athletic ability but ultimately wasn’t a good decision maker. Great game for him but it was also against an uninspired and underperforming T Wolves team without KAT, and on the Cavs home floor. Also Cleveland still lost.

    He was also limited to what he could do on offense due to poor ball handling skills, he’ll he struggled to get the ball over the half court line against aggressive one on one defense.

    I wish Exum the best. Those are my thoughts. I always held out hope he'd work out for the Jazz but it never happened.

    Great to see Dante doing well. It was the right time to trade him. He would not reach his potential here and it is not because of Quin. Hope he does well in Cleveland.

    What a compliment. He might lead them to 20 wins.

    The Cavs were down 25 and Dante brought them back. He had 28 points in just under 20 mins and then Beilein brings back in Sexton and the Wolves go on a 14-0 run and Exum doesn't even get a shot in the last 4-5 minutes of play. You'd think you'd get the ball to the guy who has shot 11/13 from the field in that instance.

    No wonder Kevin Love is so frustrated.

    Dante looked surprised after he hit several of those threes. Like, he expected them not to go in. Plus defenders played about 12 feet back on him.

    Jordan Clarkson for me over exum any day. More dynamic, more refined game, more scoring with a lot more pressure, and when he shoots I expect it to go in.

    Thanks Dante for all the hope. Here's some hope for ya, but you weren't making us a better team where Clarkson already has.

    I am stoked for Exum. As a 'forever Exumer' I am happy. However, I didn't get to see this game live, and only seen the highlights since. I do feel that this type of offensive performance is not sustainable for X :(
    I was really hoping when I heard he had scored 28 points that he had gone 7/13 (3/7 from 3 and 11/12 free throws). I feel for Dante to be a legitimate scorer he must live at the free throw line.
    However, some of his finishes in the lane were a little 'Mitchell lite'. I wonder if that is one good thing he may have developed or learnt over the past 3 years sitting on the pine in Utah. It may bode well for him injury wise too if he can have a little floater game and herky jerky moves in the lane to avoid his kamakaze drives when he doesn't have an angle on the defenders.

    But still super happy for him.

    Mind you, Exum isn't the kind of no-conscience bench scorer that Clarkson will continue to be for Jazz.

    I always thought he had potential to be great... that he could be the key to the Jazz becoming contenders. It seems that I was right. With the JC trade we are now contending.

    I like the kid and hope he finds some consistency with the Cavs. I'm still happy the trade brought us a scorer off the bench. Win-win.

    I watched it dude, he didn’t force anything, the weird little floater/hook shots he hit are the ones he makes, no kamikaze stuff, couple good passes and rebounds. It was just getting rolling with some confidence. And after he got a breather Sexton wouldn’t look to pass him the ball and he didn’t get another shot lol

    That's good to hear.
    But do you agree he needs to live at the free throw line? Or do you think that the 'successful' version of Exum would look something like this?

    I have seen a couple of Cavs games since the trade. Between Sexton, Garland and Porter Jnr, their are a lot of empty possessions. Porter Jnr has a pretty sweet handle though. Would love to think Exum gets a go as the medium term combo starting guard.
