The Utah Jazz may have lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday night, but Donovan Mitchell remains ridiculous.
Playing on a sore foot, Mitchell scored 27 points, pulled down 10 rebounds and dished 3 seats. That stat line puts him in some elite company:

The Jazz were heavily reliant on Mitchell – they didn’t have anyone else who could consistently create a shot, and their next highest scorer had 14 points. The Louisville product looks like he could grow into a perennial NBA All-Star.
