Mitchell has been especially prolific against the Clippers, averaging 41.0 points on 52.5% shooting from the floor, while the Jazz opened the series with two home wins despite the absence of fellow All-Star guard Mike Conley Jr. (hamstring). “He’s just stepping up in a big way,” said Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson, the Sixth Man of the Year who had 24 points on 9-of-15 shooting in Game 2. “He’s been a real superstar, MVP-caliber player, All-NBA type of guy. That’s his job, and that’s what he does.”

Tomorrow all eyes will be on Milwaukee, as the Bucks kick off the Eastern Conference championship, but some residents and businesses are concerned after an increase in violence downtown. “Fights, drunk driving, seeing a lot of people running the red light here, shootings.” That’s how one man, who owns a condo just off Water Street, describes what he sees on weekends. The man, who did not want to be identified, says he is fed up with the increase in crime in the area — and sent a letter to the mayor and Fire and Police Commission but didn’t get a response. “I would just like to see a detail level plan, not only just Water Street, the entire city, because the crime is extreme these days,” he said.

Mayor Barrett says he is working with city leaders and talked to Acting Police Chief Jeffrey Norman Monday night. “I understand and agree with concern we should have more police and we are working to do that,” Mayor Barrett said. The mayor also addressed reports that police were told to “not be heavy-handed” and concerns that it’s impacting officers’ ability to police effectively. “I want our police to be even-handed,” Mayor Barrett said. “I want them to be effective and I want them to be fair. I don’t want them to be heavy-handed and cause problems, creating backlash.”
