Mitchell produced 36 points (12-28 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 10-12 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, and one steal in 34 minutes during Monday's 109-104 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Mitchell was remarkable once again, and he has scored at least 30 points in four of the last seven games. He had scored 30 points or more four times through his first 37 appearances this season, and this recent stretch of solid play has helped the Jazz climb back into the playoff picture. Ricky Rubio returned to the lineup following a six-game absence with a strained hamstring, but the veteran point guard came off the bench in this one. It's unclear whether Mitchell's recent rise taking place without Rubio is merely a coincidence, is based on improved offensive spacing, or simply the result of having more time with the ball in his hands. Nevertheless, Mitchell will look to keep the momentum rolling in the right direction during Wednesday's matchup with the Nuggets.
Mitchell may have come up empty from distance, but a 10-for-17 showing from in front of the arc combined with a perfect performance from the charity stripe helped him to a second straight 28-point tally. It was also Mitchell's seventh straight haul of greater than 25 points, a red-hot stretch that's been spurred by the second-year guard shooting 45.5 percent or better in five of those contests. Factoring in Wednesday's production, the 22-year-old is averaging 27.2 points, 4.9 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals across nine January games.
Mitchell scored a game-high 28 points (9-21 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-9 FT) while adding five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 36 minutes during Monday's 100-94 win over the Pistons.
After the game, Mitchell credited a courtside heckler for motivating him, but the second-year guard hasn't seemed to need much incentive lately to fill up the bucket. He's scored at least 26 points in six straight games, averaging 30.0 points, 5.0 assists, 4.5 boards, 3.7 three-pointers and 1.3 steals over that stretch, and the hot streak has carried his numbers on the season back up to the level he reached in his breakout rookie campaign.
Mitchell turned in34 points (11-24 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 8-10 FT), six assists, six rebounds and two blocked shots across 38 minutes in Saturday's 110-102 win over the Bulls.
With a host of point guards ailing, Mitchell has been superb in shouldering the load for the Utah backcourt. This was his third-straight performance of 30 points or more, and one should consider Mitchell a high-value target during this rough patch of injuries
Mitchell finished with 33 points (14-24 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine assists, four rebounds, two blocks, and one steal in 33 minutes during Friday's 113-95 victory over the Lakers.
Mitchell scored 33 points for the second straight game Friday, leading all scorers in the blowout victory. The sophomore has now hit on at least 57 percent of his shot attempts in back-to-back games while compiling 16 assists. He is going to have the ball in his hands a lot more with the Jazz short on point-guards and thus far, the move seems to agree with him.
