Donovan Mitchell left stunned after Jazz walloped Kings by 49 without him

Donovan Mitchell, Jazz

Despite not having Donovan Mitchell or Mike Conley in the lineup, the Utah Jazz still managed to trump the Sacramento Kings with a historic 154-105 victory. The Jazz’s 49-point win garnered a whole lot of reactions on Twitter, with plenty from Mitchell himself.

In a series of tweets, Spida was basically the essential cheerleader for his teammates as they made short work of the Kings, who were playing without franchise star De’Aaron Fox. Mitchell was certainly excited:

It wasn’t just the veterans in Joe Ingles and Bojan Bogdanovic who showed up in Mitchell’s Twitter feed. The All-Star shooting guard also gave a shoutout to some of the Jazz’s up-and-coming young players, such as Georges Niang, Trent Forrest, and Jarrell Brantley:

In his final tweet, Mitchell expressed his surprise and bewilderment as his team came away with the huge victory over the Kings. The GIF aptly describes what Spida, and the majority of NBA fans, feel about this monster win by the Jazz:

The Jazz have been playing without Mitchell, the team’s leading scorer, for six games now due to an ankle injury. During this six-game stretch without him so far, Utah won three games while losing to the Los Angeles Lakers once and the Minnesota Timberwolves twice. The shooting guard is expected to rejoin the lineup soon.

When Mitchell does come back, fans can expect him to not just personally cheer on his teammates, but to hopefully clinch the top spot in the Western Conference as the regular season winds down.
