Utah Jazz Fantasy Spin
Donovan Mitchell lit up the Knicks for 30 points in 29 minutes on Wednesday, making 12-of-20 FGs with five 3-pointers, five assists, three rebounds and one steal. Mitchell came in averaging 17.0 points in three career games vs. New York, his lowest vs. any team. The New York native admitted that as a rookie "the whole trip [to New York] was really just a blur to me ... This year I'm kind of more laid-back and more controlled." He proved that and more with another excellent game tonight, and has helped Utah maintain a virtual tie for the No. 5 seed in the tight Western Conference playoff race.
Atlanta Hawks Fantasy Spin
Trae Young hit 6-of-13 shots, two 3-pointers and 7-of-7 free throws for 21 points, four rebounds, 12 assists, a steal and seven turnovers in Tuesday's loss to the Rockets. John Collins chipped in with 20 points and 10 rebounds on 9-of-14 shooting, as the young Hawks leaders continue to put up nice fantasy lines night after night. Young has now scored at least 20 points in four straight games, but the lottery-bound Hawks have lost three in a row, which is probably a good thing for their future.
