Jazz take 3-1 series lead on the strength of Mitchell’s second 50+ game.
Great game. Mitchell joins Jordan and Iverson as having multiple 50 point games in a playoff series. Jamal Murray nearly matched Mitchell’s 51 with 50, the first that’s happened ever, in a playoff game.
The way Murray was hitting big shot after big shot, and Mitchell seemed to losing his legs late, I thought this series might get evened at 2. But Donovan elevated himself as a Top 5 NBA name right now, if there was any doubt before.
If Clarkson & Conley are hitting, with some Ingles in there, and this Morgan guy coming out of nowhere… we’ll see.
This is a fun team to watch.
A week ago, I said I didn’t think Mitchell could be the #1 on a title team…It appears I was wrong once again. He’s doing this at 6’1", which is remarkable.
