Utah snapped a two-game losing streak with its second win over Boston in eight days, this time on the road. Donovan Mitchell scored twenty-eight on far more efficient shooting (10 for 21) than was the case the game before against Philadelphia (13 for 35).
Mitchell got an additional twenty points of help from his starting backcourt mate Ricky Rubio, who chipped in four rebounds and two assists.
The Jazz has shown flashes of what made it a Western Conference semifinalists a year ago (no small feat) but, so far, Utah has been inconsistent, plagued by some disjointed play and inconsistent shooting from Mitchell, who is still the team’s only source of playmaking.
I really liked Utah to start the season and I still do, to an extent. I do think I overlooked exactly how much of the offensive onus is on Mitchell, who rode a hot final couple of months into the playoffs last season.
After that magical run that thrust him firmly into the Rookie of the Year debate, can he do the same thing for the duration of this season? So far, the answer is no.
Mitchell will find Victor Oladipo slightly more difficult to work around than Kyrie Irving. That is, if Oladipo plays on Monday.
He left Indiana’s game on Saturday night with a sore knee after starting despite being listed on the injury report. Indiana got down in the second quarter but stormed back in the second half to beat the Hawks, 97–89.
Rookie Aaron Holiday picked up Oladipo’s minutes and scored twelve points in fifteen minutes. Darren Collison scored a dozen as well and added five assists in the win.
Last year, the Pacers were 0–5 without Oladipo in the lineup. He’s as indispensable as just about any guy in the league, similar to Mitchell, because of the way he not only orchestrates, but opens up Indiana’s offense. Without him, shooters aren’t getting open looks.
So Utah is catching a huge break here if Oladipo can’t go. If he’s out, the Jazz should be modest road favorites. If ‘Dipo does play and the knee isn’t anything to worry about, the Pacers should take care of this one, though the potential for the Jazz to beat them is still there, certainly.
Basically, I think Utah is a bigger favorite if Oladipo doesn’t play than Indiana if he does.
