Donovan Mitchell earns Western Conference Player of the Week

The first of many for the second year phenom.

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Utah Jazz Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Donovan Mitchell had an amazing week last week ... and it just got better. The NBA has selected Donovan Mitchell for the last week’s Western Conference Player of the Week. The honor is Donovan Mitchell’s first of his career. Last week Donovan Mitchell averaged 31.5 points on shooting splits of 48/48/77, 5.8 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks. The Spida looks like he’s ready to join the Spider-verse and the NBA’s elite this season.

Donovan Mitchell did all this while filling in for Ricky Rubio, Dante Exum, and Raul Neto at point guard. The man is a superhero.

He joins Kawhi Leonard who was the Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

It had appeared a couple weeks ago that Donovan Mitchell was turning the corner this season and our very own Andy Bailey wrote about that here. The season is looking up, y’all.
