    In Game 2, the Utah Jazz evened the series with a blowout win over the Denver Nuggets. After Donovan Mitchell’s 57 points weren’t enough for the Utah Jazz to win Game 1, the situation looked grim. However, a more concentrated burst from Mitchell in Game 2 proved to be the difference, evening this first-round playoff series on Wednesday. Though Mitchell “only” recorded 30 points and eight assists after scoring the third-most points in a game in NBA playoff history, his third quarter helped turn Utah’s double-digit advantage into a full-blown rout. Mitchell only had six points at halftime, but ignited for 21 in the third. Combined with Utah’s red-hot 3-point shooting (20-for-44 overall) and a 43-29 advantage in the third quarter, the Jazz turned a decent lead into an unassailable advantage to beat the Denver Nuggets handily in Game 2. Rudy Gobert chipped in 19 points while Joe Ingles added...

The Knicks hired Utah Jazz assistant coach Johnnie Bryant as their associate head coach under Tom Thibodeau on Tuesday, bringing on an experienced NBA mind that’s helped develop the likes of Damian Lillard, Paul Millsap, Gordon Hayward, and Donovan Mitchell. It’s his close work with the latter, Mitchell, that has gotten the rumor mill working yet again for the Knicks — providing hope that the organization can acquire a proven, highly-coveted talent.  Adam Zagoria of Forbes was told by a source that the Knicks want Mitchell “badly,” though there “may be a possible conflict with R.J. [Barrett]. There’s a debate in the front office if they...
    Tom Thibodeau’s Knicks coaching staff continues to have an offbeat feel to it as the Knicks will add Utah Jazz assistant Johnnie Bryant as associate coach, a source confirmed. According to a source, the hiring was made from a player-development angle but it also could be a lure for Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell. It adds another person Thibodeau has never worked with before. Bryant is close to Mitchell, who reportedly was frustrated in March with teammate Rudy Gobert after the center tested positive for COVID-19. Gobert mocked the NBA’s coronavirus guidelines before the positive test and Mitchell ended up testing positive a day after Gobert. “What’s understood doesn’t need to be explained,” Mitchell wrote on Instagram shortly after the Bryant news broke. “Now before you go, we got some s–t to handle first.” Mitchell scored 57 points in the Jazz’s 135-125 Game 1 overtime playoff loss to the Nuggets on...

    Donovan Mitchell put together the best performance of his NBA career in Monday’s Game 1 between the Jazz and Nuggets. The 23-year-old exploded for 57 points, the third-highest mark in playoff history behind only Elgin Baylor (61 points in 1962) and Michael Jordan (63 points in 1986). And it wasn’t just what Mitchell did against Denver’s defense. It was how he did it. Mitchell decisively attacked the basket, confidently stepped into pull-up jumpers and found open teammates when scoring opportunities weren’t available, totaling seven assists. NBA PLAYOFF PREDICTIONS:Series-by-series breakdowns and picks When the game was over, though, Mitchell didn’t walk over to ESPN’s Malika Andrews to chat about setting a new franchise record for points in a postseason contest — because the Jazz lost. Instead, Nuggets guard Jamal Murray, who scored 36 points and led Denver to a 135-125 overtime victory, spoke with Andrews and exclaimed his surprise...
    Jamal Murray couldn’t help but rub his victory in the face of Donovan Mitchell. Monday was a very special day for basketball fans because the 2020 NBA Playoffs officially kicked off! The first game on the docket was the Western Conference matchup between the Denver Nuggets and the Utah Jazz. Both squads fought tooth and nail, where they reached overtime in Game 1 of their series. Jazz guard Donavan Mitchell managed to score 57 points in the game, but it wasn’t enough, as the Nuggets pulled away with the 135-127 victory. Given that the postseason is taking place inside the league’s Walt Disney World bubble, players are bound to run into each other. That’s exactly what happened, as Denver guard Jamal Murray ran into Mitchell right outside the arena after his big performance. Imagine running into the guy who singlehandedly dropped 57 points on you that same day? That’s quite the...

So, the Nuggets escaped with a 135-125 overtime win over the Jazz despite Mitchell scoring 57 points in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series Monday. Mitchell’s 57 points were the third-most in a postseason game in NBA history. Michael Jordan scored 63 against the Celtics in 1986, and Elgin Baylor scored 61 against the Celtics in 1962. Yet, Mitchell committed a stunning eight-second violation with Utah up four and 1:46 left fourth quarter. Unpressured and calling out direction to his teammates while bringing the ball up court, Mitchell absentmindedly didn’t cross halfcourt quickly enough. On the ensuing possession,...
    In the middle of a Monday afternoon in August, social media was buzzing. The start of the NBA playoffs had created a stir. Consider it one positive of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Jazz and Nuggets gave everyone a treat, kicking off the postseason by going to overtime in the bubble at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Fla. The third-seeded Nuggets prevailed, 135-125, surviving Donovan Mitchell’s Jazz franchise playoff record of 57 points. Denver’s duo of Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic were too good, combining for 65 points, 36 from Murray. In the extra session, Murray scored 10 points, taking over after Jokic missed a potential game-winner to end regulation. Mitchell, the Westchester native, was incredible in his own right, hitting 19-of-33 shots and adding nine rebounds and seven assists. It wasn’t enough as the sixth-seeded Jazz fell short. “You just said he had 57? Damn D, he...
    The first game of the NBA Playoffs between the Utah Jazz and Denver Nuggets did not disappoint Shorthanded without point guard Mike Conley, Jr., who is attending the birth of his first son in Ohio rather than take part in Utah’s opening playoff game against the Denver Nuggets (and likely most of the series), the Jazz are depending even more than usual on young superstar Donovan Mitchell. The Louisville product didn’t disappoint, dropping 50-plus and forcing overtime against the higher-seeded, and more balanced, Denver Nuggets. Mitchell’s highlight reel is off the charts, and would’ve been the story of a Jazz Game 1 win had it not been for the efforts of Jamal Murray. Mitchell became the youngest player to score over 50 points in a playoff game, but it was Murray who forced overtime down the stretch and scored or assisted on the Nuggets’ first 16 points of that overtime...
    Donovan Mitchell and Jamal Murray combined for 93 points but Murray’s Nuggets escaped with the Game 1 win. Both teams entered this game shorthanded with Gary Harris and Will Barton out for the Nuggets and Bojan Bogdanovic and Mike Conley both out of the bubble completely for the Jazz. (Conley left for the birth of his son and is expected back in this series). The Nuggets were giving more minutes to already solid contributors deeper in their rotation. The Jazz, on the other hand, started Juwan Morgan — a 6-foot-8 rookie who had played just 134 minutes total. Early in the first half, if seemed like Denver would be ready to overwhelm Utah with their depth. Nikola Jokic was controlling things on offense, Jamal Murray was carving up the defense and Michael Porter Jr. was dropping in 3-pointers over the top of the defense. The Nuggets carried a seven-point lead...

    Before the restart of the 2019-20 NBA season, Utah Jazz franchise cornerstones Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert have decided to address the issue between them so that they could focus on the team’s quest for the championship title. However, if they fall short of bringing home the Larry O’Brien Trophy or at least reach the Finals, rumors surrounding Mitchell, Gobert, and their future in Utah are expected to heat up once again this fall. In a recent article, Mandela Namaste of Bleacher Report included the Jazz on the list of NBA’s most active teams in the 2020 offseason. If they fail to achieve their main goal this year, Namaste believes that the Jazz could try to fix the “fit issue” between Mitchell and Gobert by trading one of them this fall. “Even before Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert contracted the coronavirus, the Jazz faced internal turmoil. While Mitchell and Gobert...

    If the Jazz had it their way, Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell would be the modern version of Karl Malone and John Stockton, a big man and a guard working in concert both on and off the court to deliver success to the Utah franchise. Yet the relationship between Gobert and Mitchell feels more like that of Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant with the Lakers in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The bad news for Utah is that comparison is drawn because Gobert and Mitchell aren’t exactly the best of friends. At least Shaq and Kobe helped Los Angeles win three NBA championships after Malone and Stockton failed to win one. Talent level and superstardom aside, there’s another key difference between today’s Gobert-Mitchell pairing and yesterday’s Shaq-Kobe duo: O’Neal never pissed off Bryant by recklessly exposing him to an infections disease during a global pandemic.

    Rudy Gobert's behavior prior to his positive coronavirus test created rifts between him and his Jazz teammates, including superstar Donovan Mitchell. Rick Bowmer/AP Images In March, Rudy Gobert famously became the NBA's COVID-19 patient zero when his diagnosis with the virus helped spur the shutdown of the league and, soon after, all of North American professional sports. Gobert's irresponsible behavior before his positive test reportedly created rifts between him and his Utah Jazz teammates, including superstar Donovan Mitchell, who also tested positive for the virus. Now, nearly five months after his coronavirus case rattled the sports world and his team, Gobert told The Washington Post that the situation is "something that could make the group even stronger."

    Since being selected as the No. 13 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, Utah Jazz shooting guard Donovan Mitchell has managed to turn himself into one of the fastest rising superstars in the league. With his impressive performance on both ends of the floor and natural leadership skills, it’s no longer surprising that he became the face of the Jazz’s franchise. However, in the first three years that he spent in Utah, their only greatest achievement was reaching the second round of the Western Conference Playoffs. With their inability to contend for the NBA championship title, rumors have started to circulate around the All-Star shooting guard and his future with the team. In a recent episode of ESPN’s First Take, which is currently posted on Twitter, former NBA champion and analyst Kendrik Perkins discussed whether Mitchell needs the Jazz to win an NBA championship title or not. If he...

    Coronavirus may have just been the last straw for Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell. The Jazz stars went through a public rift in March after a “careless” Gobert became the first known NBA player to test positive for COVID-19 and Mitchell followed with a positive test the next day. But the tension between them had been building well before a pandemic exposed the difficulties in their relationship, according to ESPN. While a Jazz source told the website pre-pandemic issues between Gobert and Mitchell were “a 2 out of 10 on the NBA drama scale,” the relationship didn’t seem to need much to tip it over — getting the push when both tested protoceratops for coronavirus. “You know, I tried to put myself in his shoes,” Gobert told ESPN. “There was a lot of fear, and I think more than anything, he reacted out of fear.

    It’s been a decade since LeBron James announced ‘The Decision’ of his career. Guess who was present to watch that event live? Utah guard, Donovan Mitchell. LeBron James was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2003 and ever since made a mark in the league. His free agency period ten years before became a talking point back then. Bulls, Knicks, Heat, and other franchises were looking to take up the opportunity of having James in their roster.
