Mitchell totaled 31 points (11-26 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 40 minutes during Monday's 107-91 victory over the Rockets. Mitchell had his best game of the playoffs thus far, amassing 31 points, albeit on relatively inefficient shooting. The win keeps the series alive and the Jazz must now travel to Houston to face the Rockets in another must-win game. From a fantasy standpoint, Mitchell has put together a disappointing season, unable to improve on his impressive rookie campaign.
Mitchell finished with just 11 points (5-19 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six assists, one rebound and two steals across 37 minutes during the Jazz's 118-98 loss to the Rockets in Game 2 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Wednesday. Mitchell had vowed to improve on a Game 1 performance during which he'd shot just 38.9 percent, but matters only worsened for him Wednesday. The second-year guard is now shooting just 32.6 percent through the first two games of the series, with only a solid assist total Wednesday preventing his night from being a total fantasy washout. Mitchell and the rest of his teammates will look to pick up their respective games significantly as the series shifts back to their home court for Game 3 on Saturday night.
Mitchell finished with 19 points (7-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, and one steal in 35 minutes during Sunday's 122-90 loss to Houston. Mitchell was back on the floor Sunday after missing the final regular season game due to a thoracic spasm. The injury was never considered serious although his efforts Sunday were certainly not at the level required if the Jazz are to go any further in the playoffs. He went just 7-of-18 from the field and failed to hand out a single assist. Game 2 is on Wednesday and he will need to be much better across as aspects of his game.
Mitchell (spasm) isn't listed on the injury report for Sunday's playoff contest against Houston. As a precaution, Mitchell was inactive for the season finale against the Clippers due to a sudden thoracic spasm but is apparently all good to go. The Louisville product averaged 23.8 points, 4.2 assists and 4.1 rebounds during the regular season and will look to help extend his team's season deep into the playoffs this year.
Mitchell is out Wednesday against the Clippers due to a thoracic spasm, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports. Upper back spasms will prevent the sophomore from playing in Utah's final regular-season contest. There's nothing to suggest the injury is serious, and the initial expectation is that he'll be ready for the postseason.
