    Who cares? Kid is electric and probably already one of the most clutch 4th quarter players in the NBA. He was 11th in the NBA in 4th quarter scoring average (which would have been higher around 3rd if you tossed out Oct and Novembers numbers). He currently 9th in the playoffs for 4th quarter scoring average. He gets better when the game is on the line. Utah is incredibly lucky to have got him at 13.

    Actually he really is 9th Marshwan Brooks and Jonathan Gipson played a combined 11 games ahead of him.

      Yes I know. But percentages do matter. No clue what you are arguing. I care that he compares with some of the great guards because a lot have rolled through and none have matched him.

    Michael Jordan didn’t win a playoff game his rookie season, maybe he should have shot more??? They lost 0-4 to the Bucks.

    yeah… Mitchell is good, but 47 shots to get to 55 points is pretty meh as far as efficiency goes. Just means he shoots A LOT. Not that this is a bad thing, I mean, the Jazz have very little offensive talent, so it makes sense, but nothing to holler about IMO.

    1.17 PPS is pretty iffy… .84 pps for game 2 if you don’t include FT, but IMO FT should count

      Well if you compare OKC big three over the same span they were much worst. 0-14 with two points. Mitchel scored 12 points for the Jazz to comeback after being on the wrong end of a 19-0 run on the road.

    Mitchell’s scoring line: 21/47 (44.7%) 3/14 from three (21.4%) 18/33 everywhere else (54.5%) and 10/11 from the charity stripe (90.9%)
    MJ: 16/38 (42.1%) 1/5 from three (20.0%) 15/35 elsewhere (42.9) and 20/22 from the line (90.9%)
    Mitchell shot better from everywhere on the floor except free throws where they were exactly even. MJ got to the line more and Mitchell made more shots for their point lines to be almost exactly even in terms of per possession which is probably more important than per shot.
    Is Mitchell better than MJ? No. But he’s played two incredible games as a rookie that compare to MJ and might even be more impressive than Michael’s first two playoff games in terms of scoring (and certainly in terms of winning)

      Exactly it is way more telling when you expand ALL of the stats. Also WHEN Mitchell made the shots to win is even more impressive.

    Hey there’s only ONE Michael Jordan, but Donovan is a pretty good player and has the potential to become something special over time.
