Donovan Mitchell went off for 28 points, six rebounds, three assists, two turnovers and four 3-pointers as the Jazz improved to 5-0 at home with the win over the Blazers on Wednesday night.
This rookie is sensational. Mitchell took over late and carried the Jazz to victory with a career-high in scoring. He’s clearly a priority in the rotation, playing 35 minutes. But Utah has so much wing depth, they can afford to play the hot hand on any given night. Tonight was Mitchell’s night but who knows when it’ll be Rodney Hood, Joe Ingles or Alec Burks.
