Donovan Mitchell will have the ball in his hands even more, with point guard Raul Neto joining Rubio and Danté Exum on the injury report. A year older and wiser, Mitchell says he is better prepared for how to handle that responsibility. “The Houston series really taught me a lot,” he said after shootaround on Friday morning. “I understand how to do both without thinking how to do both. I’m just going to be myself, clear my head and not really overthink what I’m doing.”
Jazz head coach Quin Snyder appreciates the work Mitchell has put in. But as Mitchell assumes more point guard duties once again, Snyder wants his leading scorer to stay true to himself. “In your thirst to improve, you can’t lose track of what makes you good,” Snyder said. “Donovan’s such a conscientious teammate. All of a sudden, if he’s trying to think too much about his teammates, that might not be the right way to think. He’s helping his teammates more when he’s attacking.”
