Donovan Mitchell, Jazz ready for turnover-prone Rockets

Utah guard Donovan Mitchell has proved himself as a feared one-man dynamo, an offensive juggernaut able to score in myriad ways while comfortably carrying a five-man unit. But the Jazz proved last season they are at their optimal best when Mitchell is their linchpin, yet not a solo act.

Mitchell was one of seven Utah players to score in double figures in a 122-110 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday, and he is one of five players averaging double figures for the unbeaten Jazz this season. Utah will visit the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center on Thursday seeking to maintain their early-season momentum while also best utilizing all of their options on offense.

Part of the latter challenge is not relying solely on Mitchell in crunch-time situations. The Jazz can rim run and shoot from the perimeter with the best teams in the NBA. Remembering that versatility is vital to unlocking all the Jazz can be when the score is close and the game is late.
