  3. Donovan Mitchell:

    I feel like I was able to go back, but no need to risk it down 16, 18 at that point, it doesn’t make sense to go back out there and possibly tweak it. Just rest and get ready for the next game. Mitchell missed his first four shots, including a pair of drives to the basket, and didn’t make his first basket until there was 7:34 left in the second quarter. He then proceeded to score Utah's next 16 points, which included four 3-pointers. It was the first time in his last 23 games that Mitchell had gone scoreless in the first quarter.

  4. Paul Alexander:

Its lunacy, nothing to go out unless I read and agree with the findings how they CDC, wrote it and I tweak it to ensure it is fair and balanced and complete.

  5. Christian Coleman:

    When you tweak something it just takes a little while to get back to where it was.
