Donovan Mitchell scored two points Saturday, going 1 of 7 from the field, as the Utah Jazz topped the Oklahoma City Thunder 96-87. Mitchell grabbed two rebounds and dished out six assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +3 in his 21:56 of playing time. He added one steal.
Mitchell will get the start in place of Rodney Hood on Saturday against the Thunder, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.
With Hood slated to miss at least one game with a strained calf, Mitchell will make his second start of the season at shooting guard, as Joe Ingles shifts to small forward. The rookie out of Louisville was impressive in summer league and the preseason but has hit just four of his first 18 field goal attempts through Utah's first two games.
Donovan Mitchell scored two points Friday, going 1 of 7 from the field, as the Utah Jazz lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 100-97. Mitchell did not grab a rebound but dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 20:00 of playing time. He added two blocks.
Donovan Mitchell scored 10 points Wednesday, going 3 of 11 from the field, as the Utah Jazz defeated the Denver Nuggets 106-96. Mitchell grabbed one rebound and dished out four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +22 in his 26:04 on the floor. He added one block.
Mitchell was a late addition the starting lineup for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Nuggets, Jody Genessy of Deseret News reports.
The Jazz confirmed earlier Wednesday that Rodney Hood would start, but then made a last second change right before tip-off. It's unclear why Hood will not start, or if he's dealing with some sort of injury, but Mitchell should benefit in the meantime. The Jazz are already without both Dante Exum (shoulder) and Raul Neto (hamstring) in the backcourt.
