Despite losing by 20 points to the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night, Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell couldn't complain. After all, he knows how hard they fought given the circumstance they were in.

Already playing without starting center Rudy Gobert the past few games due to health and safety protocols, the Jazz suffered another blow after backup big man Hassan Whiteside also had to enter the protocols. A team built to have a rim-protecting big man, Utah naturally struggled getting stops against the Cavs and rolling offensively without a center making screens.

After the contest–which saw them lose 111-91– Mitchell admitted it was just a “weird game.” Aside from Gobert and Whiteside, they were also missing forward Rudy Gay and center Udoka Azubuike due to COVID-19 protocols.

“We competed, given the circumstances. We can't complain about that,” Mitchell said of their performance, per Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune.

As expected, the Jazz were outrebounded by the Cavs, who are not lacking in big men themselves with the likes of Jarrett Allen, Kevin Love, Lauri Markkanen and Evan Mobley. They collected 50 boards, which is a massive difference to Utah's 32.

The playmaking wasn't there for the Jazz as well, with the team finishing with just 11 assists to the Cavs' 28 dimes. Donovan Mitchell himself struggled making his shots, making just 17 points after a 3-of-9 shooting from three.

It was the Jazz's fourth straight loss, and so Quin Snyder certainly has to do something quickly if they don't want to fall anymore in the standings.

Hopefully, though, Rudy Gobert and the rest of the team can return sooner rather than later.
