Jordan only needed 36 attempts to get 53.. Mitchell needed 47.

    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. 

  • TheNuschler

    Is he Michael Jordan? Ah, no…

  • Hammer

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

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

    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

    • BattleGroundUte

      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. 

  • teepee

    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)

    • BattleGroundUte

      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. 

    • BattleGroundUte

      One other stat Jordan 0-2 Mitchell got the win on the road.

    Well nice start from the Jazz 9-0.

    Jazz MUST win this.

  • quagmire

    George is making ingles into his personal bitch. Sad to see

    • BattleGroundUte

      Well I don’t think Ingles could outplay George.  You have to push him off the three which they are doing better at I think.  I am mostly disapointed in his tentative offense.  

    • BattleGroundUte

      Right now you can just see a lack of mental focus.  A backcourt time violation in the PLAYOFFS! Frustrating.  

  • BattleGroundUte

    Westbrook starting to take over. Mitchell needs to take over and push it.  

  • BattleGroundUte

    Four straight turnovers.

  • BattleGroundUte

    17-0fer run.  wow

  • BattleGroundUte

    Weird decisions from Westbrook to want a three twice.

    WOOOOO JAZZ!! Mitchell outplayed OKC in that Fourth quarter.  What a game. Gobert with some clutch free throws. 

  • ironman1315

    What a game. And jerebko with the bounce back!

    • BattleGroundUte

      Favors my goodness!!! What a beast.  Mitchell took over vs ZERO made FG’s for the big OKC three.  

      • ironman1315

        And this game wasn’t even close to as good as the jazz can play.

        • BattleGroundUte

          Yes for sure.  0-7 Three point for Mitchell and he still dropped 28.  Being on the wrong end of 19-0 run on the road and then coming back and winning is impressive.  

  • TheNuschler

    OKC’s “Big Three” are a strange looking “Big Three”

    Donovan 13, “Big Three” 2 and the 0-14 in 4th combined. Ouch.

  • Larry B

    I can’t watch the Jazz game because of “blackout restrictions”??!!

    WTF???? Is there any way I can watch It? I have NBA TV but apparently that’s not happening!

    FUBO is offering a free trial, stream quality isn’t very good, but I’m just cancelling the subscription after the game, since all the others will probably be on TNT or ESPN.

      I’m on the bride’s iPhone7 and there’s some weirdness.  Hope it is just an isolated thing.

      • Tony

        Need a fundraiser to get me an iOS device for testing to avoid this.  BOOOOO. 

      • Tony

        UGH. Major bug found. Fixing now. 

        • UteBrook

          I updated on my I7 and every time I try to look at the Latest Topics (or any in the menu) I get a red diamond with an i and it says “Error fetching data.  Internet connection required?  Check your connection , then click reload below.”  

          I’m connected to the internet.

          • Tony

            I just updated my device and something similar happened. I think I logged out and back in or something. Give that a try.  I found one other bug with the reply dialogs which are new.  If scrolled down a ways the dialog is opening off screen.  Dammit.  It seems the reply dialog is going to the top of the scroll instead of the top of the screen.  This update has been quite a PITA.

  • Tony

    I’ve had to squash several bugs on this new release this week. There have been two bug fix updates in the last two days which I’ve pushed up to the app stores.  As of this morning, all known issues are fixed and we should be good to go (knocks on wood).  Update to the latest version of the app today.  You might want to logout first.

    • gothamute

      Doesn’t work at all on Android…

      • Tony

        Running great on my Android. Maybe delete the app and reinstall it.  

        • gothamute

          I had done that but it still didn’t work yesterday. Must have updated overnight because it’s working fine now. Great work dude, love the product

          • Tony

            Yeah it can sometimes take a bit for the update to appear for all users.

    Interesting timing after two players transfered.

      Two? Seeley and?

        Jake Conner maybe? going to Westminister

          I didn’t count Conner because he was not a scholarship player.

          • Tony

            Oh yeah. I was counting Jake.

    • snafu

      I think this signing puts us 1 over so someone else will have to leave. Logic would say that Jokl will be moving on.

    Major Ute Hub App Update Coming

    I’m about to submit a major update of the Ute Hub app to the app stores. The back end of the app has some big changes and when I implement them here, anyone who is using the current or any older version of the app will have problems. It may take a day or two, to up to a week for the apps to be updated and approve in the stores.  

    So starting soon, your app my not work right.  Check for an update in your app store. 

    I figured now is a good time since there’s not much going on Ute sports wise.

  • BattleGroundUte

    I would use the app but the scroll feature is super annoying. I have an iPhone 8 up to date on iOS as well. For longer threads it just takes too long to get to replies. 

    It would also be nice when you click on latest activity and you tap the newest reply that it goes to that reply. 

    • Tony

      If you could elaborte as to what makes the scroll feature “annoying” perhaps I might take a look at that. (more…)

      This update will be the last I’m programming on a legacy platform, which isn’t “native.” I’ll be converting over to all native in the next version, which may be better for stuff like scrolling, tapping, and using native parts of the device like the GPS or camera etc.  I hope to have that converted by football season, but that’s a major task as it will be a complete rewrite in a language I’m just learning.  

      🙂

      • Tony

        And by the way, that last post (and this one) are posted from the newest version.  THIS IS A TEST!!!

      • BattleGroundUte

        When you scroll it should go down a little more than just a few mm. I don’t use any other forum type apps so I don’t have much to measure it up against. But if I want to scroll to the bottom in Chrome I just swipe once and it will quickly go to the bottom of the page. On the App it goes down very little requiring multiple swipes to move at all. It is the only thing preventing me from using the app exclusively. 

        • Tony
          2

          So you must be talking about the scroll momentum, where you can kind of flick it and it has sort of an intertia quality to it.  That will be working in the next major release when I change platforms.  Hopefully that’s by football season.

          • BattleGroundUte

            Yes it lacks zero momentum. Even a hold and scroll feature would be nice. 

            • Tony

              I’ll have to check out this issue on a setup like yours.  On mine, a different OS, I can flick my finger on a thread with a lot of replies and it scrolls with momentum.

          • Utebeam

            My iphone iOS doesn’t have momentum. Would love to see it. 

            • Tony

              If this update doesn’t have it for you then hopefully by football season.

    • Tony

      In reference to the time it takes to get replies, I did work a bunch on the replies. There will be a new threaded layout first off.  And I also worked on the back end call to get the replies and hopefully made that much quicker.  BUT that load can be long on a mobile network if there are tons of replies.  Hopefully the new changes make a nice difference there.

    I’m a fan of big changes in the back end 

    <rim shot>

  • Hammer

    The app is telling me to update, then when I go to update in the app store, there is no update option, just “Open”.

    I am using Iphone 6.

    • Tony

      I’m still submitting. Yeah you’ll have to wait a few days. Just watch here or keep an eye on your app store for a notice from them that there’s an update.  

      • Hammer

        I guess I didn’t read through all of your original post.

    If you include arena size and size for nearby city populations, Utah may look even better. 

  • PlainsUte

    Seems like a lot of those 96% were invisible or disguised as empty seats in the JMHC for many games.  I suppose this is paid attendance, which, for revenue, is what matters.

    • Ute1990

      The near 100% RES attendance raises the combined average.  I would estimate the JMHS paid attendance at about 85% given the math, and acutal attendance well below that.

      • Tony

        RES has been consistently over 100%, except perhaps the last game of 2017.

        • PlainsUte

          Even if football is 100%, that means 92% for basketball if they are equally weighted.  Doubting that number is butts in seats.  More like cheeks in seats.

          • GameForAnyFuss

            They are not equally weighted. It’s total butts in seats in both venues divided by total seats in both venues. And since most football stadiums have 5x the number of seats as a basketball arena, it’s about 5x weighted toward football.

            • PlainsUte

              they should further weight by number of games, there are 7 home football games and 17 basketball games

              17×15,000 = 255,000 seat-games to fill

              7×45,000=315,000 seat-games to fill

              By that measure the weighting would be nearly even.

    The best of the situation? He could be the featured back depending on who the Donco’s draft?
