Donovan Mitchell scored 26 points on 10-20 shooting with five rebounds, three assists, and a steal in 33 minutes on Tuesday in a win over the Lakers.
Mitchell played the bulk of the starting minutes at the two as Rodney Hood left the game with an apparent neck injury after just four minutes. He was aggressive looking for his shot and converted efficiently. We will need to hear more on the injury to Hood, but keep an eye on Mitchell as he may be a primary beneficiary if Hood is schedule to miss time at any point this season.
