Donovan Mitchell tore up the Nuggets once again on Sunday, ending the night with 44 points (14-of-25 FG, 7-of-7 FT), nine triples, six rebounds, five assists, three steals and four turnovers.
The Jazz struggled to maintain a steady offensive rhyme during the middle of this game, but that had little to do with Mitchell's performance. He hit a number of difficult drives and 3-point bombs to keep the Jazz within striking distance, and it will be up to his teammates to take advantage of the openings he is creating if the Jazz are going to win a pivotal Game 7 on Tuesday. Mitchell is continuing to prove he is a bonafide number one option that can deliver early-round fantasy value when he is locked in.
