The Utah Jazz haven’t had the start they wanted this season, winning just three of their first six games, but future looks bright for Utah. The play of former Louisville guard Donovan Mitchell is one of the big reasons why Jazz fans should feel good about the next few years.
Mitchell had the best performance of his young career in Utah’s Saturday night win over the Lakers. He finished with 22 points on 16 shooting possessions in just 27 minutes and was +17 on the night.
Mitchell became the first Jazz rookie to score at least 22-points in at least one of their first six career games since former Cardinal Darrell Griffith did it in 1980-81.
