Donovan Mitchell had his way with the Thunder on Friday night to the tune of 38 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in the Jazz’s series-ending Game 6 win.
Maybe he’s the Rookie of the Year. Maybe he’s not. Either way, you can’t take anything away from this rookie absolutely stealing the show in his first career playoff series, burying a team with much higher expectations. Mitchell averaged 28.5 points for the series but saved his best shooting performance for last, sending OKC home with 14-of-26 from the field and 5-of-8 from deep. He’s a matchup nightmare for anybody and it won’t be easy for the team with the best record in the NBA to slow him down in the next round.
