Jazz star Donovan Mitchell Discusses Early Struggles

Published

Utah Jazz budding superstar Donovan Mitchell believes that overthinking is the reason that he has had some struggles early on during the 2018-2019 regular season, and believes his recent performance against the Houston Rockets was a turnaround for him this year.

“I was in my head,” Mitchell said of his slow start to the season, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN. “I didn’t get much sleep.”

“The past few games, I’d been struggling because I’d been kind of pressing the issue,” Mitchell continued. “I came into [Wednesday’s game against Houston] with the mindset of just finding the open guy. That was really my biggest thing. Last year in the playoffs, there were games where I got too deep or too whatever, just kind of not making the right plays. To me, just being able to make the right reads early just allowed me to settle down and relax a little bit.

“I always put pressure on myself, whether it was last year at the beginning of the year or whatever, just to be perfect. Obviously, that’s impossible.”

Mitchell sure bounced back, dropping 38 points, 5 rebounds, and 7 assists en route to the Jazz’s big win over the Rockets, their 2nd victory of the young season.
