“I work really closely with Collin,” Gottlieb said. “So I’ve been cutting up individual film clips and categories for him and going back and forth just to try to keep that going. Obviously, he made such incredible strides this year so I want to keep that going.”
Sexton, 21, was playing the hottest basketball of his career before the NBA decided to suspend the regular season.
As a matter of fact, he was putting up 30.0 points, 4.6 assists and 1.6 steals per game in March. The impressive numbers for the month were among those of the finest players in the association.
On the season, the 6-foot-1 guard is averaging 20.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.0 assists per contest.
Perhaps a strong reason Sexton has been experiencing so much success this season is because he’s been under the tutelage of Gottlieb.
The Cavs hired the 42-year-old last summer to help steer the team’s rebuilding process.
Gottlieb served as head coach of the University of California, Berkeley women’s team for eight years, putting together an impressive 129-89 record. Now, she’s expediting the Cavs’ developmental process.
While the sample size is small, multiple players have gravitated towards Gottlieb and spoken volumes about the first-year NBA assistant coach.
