      The Jazz missed Dante, but Mitchell was definitely showing some NBA range.

      It's awesome that he's doing so great, and so many people are talking about him - but if he were playing poorly, we'd all be saying it's just summer league and doesn't mean anything. And we'd be right.

      That being said, I hope he can have a 23 point game before mid-season. That'd be fantastic.

          That putback clip is insane. How does he get up so high again so fast after the first jump? Unreal.

            So stoked about this kid. Jazz are going to have some serious attitude this season.

                It's just summer league and doesn't mean anting, but it sure is nice to see a rookie do well at summer league for a change. I'm not sure I remember that ever happening.

                  Millsap was that last I remember having such a strong impact. You could just see he had it. The Mitchell kids seems good, really seems to feel the game. he might have a real chance.

                      34 points on 21 shots. 1.6 points per shot. Only three players in the NBA averaged better than that last year. Dwight Howard (1.63 PPS). DeAndre Jordan (1.78 PPS). And Rudy Take F'N Note Gobert (1.82 PPS).

                        Finishes with 37 points and 8 steals. Based on what I read sounds like he could have had several assists if he was playing with anyone capable of making a basket.

                          Actually the boxscore says he had 37 points, and 8 steals! Between Mitchell and Rubio - the Jazz should be FASTBREAK city. In case you missed it, you got to see it to believe it. IT'S ONLY SUMMER LEAGUE - I keep telling myself.



                          Perhaps the most exciting part about this - is this performance came after he sat out a game. I think the coaches had some things, they wanted to have him observe, and then work with him on. He responded in a huge way, he listens, is coachable and a worker. His game looks on par with all the top draft picks - that's the exciting thing - it looks like the Jazz got a top 5, top 7 pick, even without having one.

                            I hope he gets rotational minutes immediately.

                              The way he's playing, he's demanding them.

                              I couldn't remember how Deron looked in Summer League. So I searched an article. Man, if these names aren't a blast from the past...
