Mitchell registered 22 points (9-20 FG, 4-7 3Pt), 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 35 minutes during Utah's 115-102 win over the Thunder in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.
Mitchell checked in second behind backcourt Ricky Rubio in scoring, but he still managed his second double-double over the series' first three games. The rookie has shot no less than 40.0 percent over the first trio of contests against the Thunder, and after coming up empty on all seven tries from distance in Game 2, Mitchell encouragingly drained 57.1 percent of his seven three-point attempts Saturday. The 21-year-old has appeared completely immune to postseason jitters and will look to continue his stellar run of production in Monday's Game 4.
Mitchell (foot) is in the starting lineup for Saturday's Game 3 against the Thunder.
Mitchell has been dogged by the foot since the start of the playoff series, but has played through it. He's played a total of 78 minutes in the first two games.
Mitchell scored 28 points (10-25 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 8-9 FT) to go along with six rebounds, two assists and one steal across 43 minutes during Wednesday's 102-95 win over the Thunder.
Mitchell led the team in scoring as he bested his total from Game 1, which is remarkable considering he couldn't buy a bucket from beyond the arc. He also chipped in on the glass again and is now averaging 27.5 points and eight rebounds per game over his first two career playoff contests. Mitchell should carry a heavy burden for the duration of the team's playoff run and will look to add to his impressive totals Saturday in Game 3.
Mitchell (foot) will play and start in Game 2 against the Thunder on Wednesday.
Mitchell tested out the foot during pregame warmups and ultimately felt healthy enough to take the floor as the Jazz try and even the series. He'll start as usual and while he's likely still dealing with some discomfort, Mitchell should still see big minutes if the foot allows for it. Mitchell put together an impressive performance in the playoff opener, posting 27 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block across 35 minutes.
Mitchell (foot) will be a game-time decision for Game 2 against the Thunder on Wednesday, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Mitchell will test out the foot during pregame warmups before a decision is made, so we may not get final word on his availability prior to lineup lock. That makes him a risky DFS play for Wednesday's slate, though he'll likely do everything he can to take the court considering the Jazz are already down one game in the series.
