24 Year Old Jazz Star Eviscerates Helpless Clippers

Donovan Mitchell Is Something Else

Last night, the Utah Jazz came from behind to beat the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals. This was spurred by a tremendous performance by their young star, Donovan Mitchell. Mitchell put up 45 points, 5 assists and 3 rebounds.

Donovan Mitchell was drafted with the 13th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by the Denver Nuggets, but was traded on draft night to the Utah Jazz. Since joining the Jazz organization, he has become a staple. He has consistently averaged 20 points, with this season being his career best.

After a quiet first and second quarter, Donovan Mitchell heated up in the third quarter and never looked back after that, shooting deep threes and clutch shots at the rim, getting a crucial Game 1 win at home for his team.

The Clippers, in contrast looked dead on arrival, especially during the 3rd quarter of the game. Clippers players, even their faces in Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, missed clear shots that would have helped the Clippers take victory in the game.

They should have played how Donovan Mitchell played coming out of halftime. Mitchell's play showed just how much the Utah Jazz wanted the win more than the LA Clippers in this Game 1.

This is still, of course, a very wide open series. The Los Angeles Clippers stil very much have a chance to take control of this series and advance to their first Conference Finals. However, if Game 1 is any indication, Donovan Mitchell and the rest of the Jazz roster will play with all of their heart.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
