Donovan Mitchell finished 1-for-7 from the floor, ending up with two points, six rebounds, one assist and one block in the Jazz’s loss to the Suns on Wednesday night.
Everyone fell in love with Donovan Mitchell in Summer League and preseason. But Alec Burks being a healthy scratch and Mitchell getting 13 minutes and playing poorly is an odd decision. It certainly shows where the rookie and Burks stand in the rotation. Mitchell can be relied on for playing time but he’ll experience plenty of these nights while dealing with rookie growing pains.
