Donovan Mitchell had a postseason-low 10 points on 4-of-16 shooting in Utah’s 113-92 loss to the Rockets on Friday. In his 31 minutes, the Jazz were outscored by 31 points.
The rookie shouldered a lot of blame afterwards, telling reporters that he “didn’t show up” for his teammates, via SI‘s Ben Golliver:
