During the week he scored a career-high 46 points, Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell is the Western Conference Player of the Week.
It's the second time this season Mitchell has won the award.
Mitchell averaged 34 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists on 46.6% shooting including 44.4% from the 3-point line.
“I think the biggest thing for me is just staying calm, not getting too high,” Mitchell said of his 46-point performance. “I’ll probably watch it a few times but not overdo it. Just staying calm and understanding that I’m not a rookie. Not saying this is regular, but I just treat it like another game and move on.”
Mitchell previously won Western Conference Player of the Week for the week of January 6-13.
Mitchell also made news for giving a pair of his shoes to a 102-year-old Jazz fan before his career-high night against the Bucks.
