Donovan Mitchell has been the biggest story surrounding the Cleveland Cavaliers this season, not only for his recent 71-point game but for how well he has fit in with his new team after the stunning offseason trade from the Utah Jazz. Mitchell played for Utah for five seasons, averaging 23.9 PPG in that span. Few probably thought his numbers would get even better on his new team with an established core, but Mitchell scored another 46 points in his return to Utah on Tuesday and sure looks like one of the top players in the sport.
