CLEVELAND — It is about at this point rookies typically hit a wall of fatigue, but so far Cavaliers guard Darius Garland is going in the other direction.
The Cavs are now beyond the official midway point of the season entering Monday’s home game vs. the New York Knicks (5 p.m., FOX Sports Ohio).
After a rocky rookie start, Garland is averaging 15.7 points and 6.0 assists over the last 10 games. He is shooting 43 percent from the field and a sizzling 91 percent on free throws in that stretch. He is coming a 16-point, five-assist performance in Saturday’s loss at Chicago.
