  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Leader from deep in 20-point game

    Garland provided 24 points (8-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six assists and three rebounds across 36 minutes during Sunday's 122-103 victory over the Pacers.

    For the second game in a row, Garland was perfect from the free-throw line and drilled exactly four three-pointers, allowing him to finish as the team's scoring leader. With backcourt mate Donovan Mitchell enduring a rough patch on the offensive end of late, Garland's steadier play has helped the Cavaliers cruise to a 4-2 record over their last six games.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Carries Cavaliers to victory

    Garland totaled 32 points (11-19 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), two rebounds and 11 assists across 33 minutes during Thursday's 128-113 victory over Memphis.

    Garland dropped a game-high 32 points in the win, carrying the Cavaliers to victory despite the ejection of Donovan Mitchell. While the points were nice, it has been Garland's assist numbers that have been impressive of late. He now has at least 10 assists in seven of his past 10 games, buoying his overall value. He has been a top 15 player in nine-category formats over the past two weeks, much to the delight of his fantasy managers.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Brings the defense again Friday

    Garland provided 31 points (10-23 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 8-10 FT), two rebounds, 13 assists and four steals in 37 minutes during Friday's 112-100 loss to Oklahoma City.

    Garland was everywhere for the Cavaliers, racking up another four steals to go with his 14th double-double of the season. Known for his scoring and passing ability, high steal numbers are not typically associated with Garland. However, he now has a combined 16 steals over his past six games, much to the delight of his fantasy managers. It remains to be seen whether he can maintain his recent uptick in defensive production, but if that is the case, it certainly adds to his already lofty fantasy ceiling.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Strong two-way effort Thursday

    Garland closed with 26 points (9-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, nine assists and four steals across 33 minutes during Thursday's 113-95 win over Houston.

    Garland stepped things up on both ends of the floor, falling one assist short of another double-double while also adding multiple steals for the fifth straight game. With Donovan Mitchell still sidelined due to his groin issue, Garland has been able to shoulder more of the offensive load, scoring at least 20 points in 10 of his past 11 games. He has been a top-15 player over the past two weeks, rewarding anyone who took a chance on him in their drafts.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Drops 22 in loss to New York

    Garland closed with 22 points (6-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 8-10 FT), four rebounds, six assists and two steals across 35 minutes during Tuesday's 105-103 loss to the Knicks.

    The 22-year-old continues to look good since returning from a thumb injury at the beginning of the month. Garland has scored at least 20 points in five straight games and nine of the last 10, averaging 22.7 points, 8.5 assists, 3.6 boards, 2.3 threes and 1.1 steals over that stretch. If Donovan Mitchell -- who may have aggravated his groin injury at the end of Tuesday's loss -- ends up missing more time, Garland will be the go-to guy in the Cavs' backcourt.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Scores 21, hands out 10 dimes

    Garland ended with 21 points (9-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 assists, three rebounds and two steals across 36 minutes during Saturday's 114-102 victory over the Bucks.

    In the three games since backcourt mate Donovan Mitchell (groin) exited the lineup, Garland has averaged 25.3 points, 11.3 assists, 3.3 rebounds, 3.0 three-pointers and 2.0 steals in 38.3 minutes per contest. Those numbers are all above Garland's season averages, and the young point guard should continue to notice a slight boost in production if Mitchell remains sidelined for additional games to come.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Reaches 30-point threshold

    Garland amassed 31 points (10-25 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 8-8 FT), two rebounds, 10 assists and two steals in 40 minutes during Friday's 120-114 loss to Golden State.

    Garland knocked down 40.0 percent of his attempts from the field and registered his third straight double-double. He's been distributing the ball at a high level of late, as he's dished out 10 or more assists in four of his last five appearances.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Nabs second straight double-double

    Garland posted 24 points (7-17 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 14 assists, five rebounds and two steals across 39 minutes during Wednesday's 115-114 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Though he didn't notice an appreciable bump in his usage while Donovan Mitchell (groin) sat out Wednesday, Garland nonetheless came through with his second straight double-double, with his 14 assists representing a new season high. Garland has converted fewer than half of his shot attempts in six of his past seven games to bring his field-goal percentage down to 44.7 percent for the season, down a point and a half from his career-best mark in 2021-22.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Strong double-double Monday

    Garland posted 30 points (9-22 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 7-7 FT), 11 assists, six rebounds and one steal over 40 minutes during Monday's 113-103 victory over the Pelicans.

    Garland took over in the second half, ending with a team-high scoring total. Monday's game was only the fourth time he has scored at least 30 points this season, as he has afforded more of the offensive load to Donovan Mitchell. However, Mitchell was unable to finish the game Monday, leaving with what is being described as a groin strain. Should Mitchell be forced to miss time, Garland may be required to shoulder more of the scoring responsibility.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Posts another solid night

    Garland closed with 21 points (8-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds and six assists over 38 minutes during Tuesday's 116-114 loss to Utah.

    Garland knocked down 44.4 percent of his attempts from the field, and he also contributed across the board by turning in his best rebounding performance since Dec. 17. The Vanderbilt product has now put up 20-plus points in three straight games since returning from a thumb sprain.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Has hot start in win

    Garland finished with 22 points (8-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two rebounds, seven assists and two steals over 35 minutes during Sunday's 112-98 win over the Suns.

    Garland was on fire to start the contest, knocking down all five of his field goal attempts in the first quarter for 12 points to help Cleveland jump out to a nine-point lead. From there, however, the Cavs' guard went a combined 0-of-7 from the field between the second and third quarters before chipping in another eight points on 3-of-5 shooting in the final period. Garland added seven assists on the night, which tied Caris LeVert for a game high. He's now dished out at least seven dimes in five straight contests.

  • Cavaliers' Darius Garland: Participates in shootaround

    Garland (thumb) participated in Friday's shootaround, Danny Cunningham of 850 ESPN Cleveland reports.

    Garland has been unavailable for the last three games due to a right thumb sprain and is questionable Friday. His thumb was wrapped during Friday's shootaround, but it was encouraging to see him participate in the session ahead of Friday's game against the Nuggets. If he's forced to miss a fourth consecutive matchup, Caris LeVert, Isaac Okoro and Raul Neto could see increased run.
