Mitchell ibabawi ang Jazz
Nagwakas na ang karera ng Utah Jazz nitong Miyerkoles (Manila time), pero hindi naman pinanghihinaan ng loob si star Donovan Mitchell sa ipapakita pang galing ng team niya sa nakatakda sa Disyembre na 75th National Basketball Association (NBA) 2020-21.
Kinapos sa Western Conference first round playoffs ang Jazz kontra Denver Nuggets, 80-78, para sumalto second round.
Humiga sa sahig si Mitchell sa final buzzer at hindi na napigilang maging emosyunal na rito’y kumayod siya ng 22 points at 18 rebounds.
Gayun pa man, proud sa naging resulta ang Jazz guard sa ipinakitang tikas ng kanyang koponan.
“We’re ready to fight through anything,” sambit ni Mitchell, “That’s always been the case. It’s a character thing to come back the way we did. We’re ready to compete through anything.
For myself … I can’t lie to you, I was surprised by certain little things that I’ve done and accomplished. But it’s nothing I haven’t worked on. There were criticisms of what I could on the offensive and defensive end and I feel like I’ve taken a step in the right direction.” (Janiel Abby Toralba)
