Utah Jazz All-Star Donovan Mitchell scored 25 points in 26 minutes during Wednesday night’s 141-129 win over the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 2 of the Western Conference quarterfinals — looking like he hasn’t missed a beat after missing over a month because of a right ankle sprain.
“I feel good,” Mitchell said after the game, which tied the series 1-1. “I’ve put myself in kind of treacherous situations to come back and be ready for playoff intensity. I felt better than I anticipated, and as a whole, I think the biggest thing as a team is we did a lot of good things tonight … so it made my job easier. I didn’t have to come in and just do everything. I was able to find my spots and attack. And kind of just do what I do. And my teammates made it really easy for me.”
