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.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire.
