Wade Tweets Offer To Help Improve Mitchell’s Game
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Following their first round exit from the 2019 NBA Playoffs, Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell received an uplifting tweet from Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade.
Mitchell had a strong performance in Game 4 in Salt Lake City with 31 points, including 19 points in the fourth quarter but only scored 12 points in Game 5 in Houston on 4-of-22 shooting from the field.
After the game, Mitchell said that he wasn’t great in Game 5 but will be better.
