    "It Starts With Me" | Following Great Season, Mitchell Ready To Work

    When Donovan Mitchell sat down in front of the media immediately following Utah’s season-ending loss to Dallas in the opening round of the NBA playoffs, he made it very apparent that many of Utah’s struggles were on him.  As the leader and a borderline all-NBA player, it was widely expected that Mitchell would take the blame — that’s what true stars do. But digging into what Mitchell said — and more importantly, how he said it — it’s even more apparent that he is a player who cares and someone who means what he says.

    Often viewed as a throw-in during a midseason trade that sent Joe Ingles to Portland and brought Nickeil Alexander-Walker to Utah, nobody really knew what to expect from Juancho Hernangomez. Two months later and Hernangmomez not only found his way into head coach Quin Snyder’s rotation — an incredible accomplishment given Snyder’s elite coaching — Hernangomez found himself on the court in the first round of the playoffs against Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks.

    One thing that can never be doubted is Donovan Mitchell's competitive fire. Whether through injury, determination, or pure grit, Mitchell is a player who will always leave it on the court — a budding superstar that's expected to keep getting better each season. But what truly separates Mitchell from others in his class is his willingness to be a leader for the Utah Jazz — someone who leads vocally and by example.  That was never more apparent than Thursday night in Utah's season-ending loss to the Mavericks.

    Before Utah tipped off with the Dallas Mavericks in game six on Thursday night, point guard Mike Conley was honest about his shooting struggles and his issues with seeing the ball go through the hoop. A 15-year veteran, Conley knew that even if his shot wasn’t falling, there were multiple ways he could impact the game — and he did just so.  While finding a rhythm offensively by finishing with 11 points, Conley also added eight assists and four rebounds, making a positive impact whenever he was on the court.

    As many people know, the NBA is a make-or-miss league — it's what separates great teams from elite teams and, ultimately, what decides outcomes and leaves the last team standing.  For the Utah Jazz, they found themselves in the ideal scenario late Thursday night. Arguably their best three-point shooter and one of their most clutch players hand the ball in his hands with a chance to win the game.  It's an opportunity the team will take 10 out of 10 times.

    With four seconds left, Bojan Bogdanovic caught the ball on the left wing, pump-faked, and watched Spencer Dinwiddie sail by him. After a dribble, he reset his feet and let it fly. For the Utah Jazz, it was the ideal scenario. Arguably your best three-point shooter and one of your most clutch players getting a chance to win it with a wide-open look. But as many know, the NBA is a make-or-miss league, and sadly for Bogdanovic and the Jazz, it was a miss that they'll be remembering.

    Before the postseason started, Utah was positively optimistic when thinking about the road ahead. Although the regular season hadn't gone according to plan, some of what went wrong were out of their control — such as injuries and health and safety protocols. But the other issues were self-inflicted, which caused problems throughout the regular season that saw the Jazz finish lower in the standings than expected.

    Donovan Mitchell knows precisely what's at stake on Thursday night at Vivint Arena. When speaking with the media on Wednesday afternoon, the all-star guard didn't boast about the fact that Utah needs a win to keep their season alive. He wasn't reserved when asked about what went wrong Monday night in Dallas. If nothing else, he was pointed. From questions about his health, the future of the Jazz, or what's different in an elimination game, Mitchell wasn't arrogant or shy — he was direct, focused, and, if nothing else, ready to go.
