NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Oklahoma City Thunder Rob Ferguson-USA TODAY Sports

Here are the player grades for Wednesday’s Cavs-Thunder game. As always, be sure to share yours below.

Collin Sexton: B

Sexton dove into one of his bad habits of going at one player specifically in his matchup with Russell Westbrook. But, overall, he was decent in this game and had some positive moments. That’s what matters.

Rodney Hood: C

Hood was just fine and did do some secondary creating for once. He’d still be better if his shot selection was a bit better.

Cedi Osman: C+

Osman had his best half in weeks in the first half and then completely fell off, particularly as a shooter. A positive, though, was his 10 rebounds and six assists; this felt like the first time in awhile where what he does showed up in the box score beyond missing shots.

Larry Nance Jr.: B-

Nance was pretty fine in this game and hit a three-pointer. When the Cavs’ offense stalled out in the second half. it wasn’t really his fault.

Tristan Thompson: D+

This was maybe Thompson’s worst game of the season, as he was really negated by the Thunder’s bigs. Despite watching the game, it’s hard to believe he only nabbed two rebounds.

Jordan Clarkson: A-

A game after taking a season-low five shots, Clarkson got back to doing what Clarkson does best. And he was 4-8 from three to boot; the Cavs are going to — gulp — need more of this in a post Kyle Korver reality.

Ante Zizic: D

Zizic continues to look rough in his limited minutes. He grabbed five rebounds, but 0-4 from the field is a tough look for him.

Andrew Harrison: D

Harrison didn’t make any of his four shots and had zero assists. This was not a good performance for him by any definition.
